The two main requirements you will need to consider as an international applicant for Medicine include your English language qualification, usually in the form of an IELTS exam, and grades from whichever exams you have taken. If you are taking international exams like the IB this may not apply, but if you are using a local curriculum, it is advisable to understand what your grades equate to in the British or international systems.
As Medicine courses are taught in English, all applicants must have a good verbal and written grasp of the language. If English is not your first language, but you have been in full-time education in the English language for the past two years, you may not need to sit a test, depending on your university choices. Otherwise, you may be asked to complete a formal qualification such as the IELTS or TOEFL. A list of acceptable English-language qualifications can be found on each university’s website.
