Message for prospective medical students - impact of COVID-19 

The situation with COVID-19 is extremely challenging and continues to be fast-moving.  We hope that you, your friends and family and fellow students are safe and well.  

The safety of our University community is our priority, in all that we do and we have been trying to provide as much information as we can about how we are adapting to these difficult circumstances.  

Following the cancellation of this summer’s exam season in the UK and internationally, we fully appreciate the concerns of all prospective UofG medical students and their families surrounding the award of qualification grades for this year and the impact on applications.   

Whilst we anticipate that relevant adjustments will be made by awarding bodies/exam boards, the precise mechanisms for doing this are not yet agreed.  We will monitor any updates received from government departments and contribute to the discussions between the various awarding bodies, schools, other universities and partner organisations so that we can do our utmost to ensure that no prospective student is disadvantaged.  

In the meantime you may wish to view the FAQs for offer holders and prospective students on the University webpage which is being regularly updated:   

Please take care of yourselves, your families and those around you.

We look forward to welcoming you as part of our new intake of medical students for 2020.
