Information for applicants from countries other than the UK, on studying and living in the UK. 

Studying Medicine at the University of Glasgow

Visa applications

All International students should be aware of important changes that have been made to visa applications.  Any international student planning to study full-time in the UK with a start date after March 2009 will need to apply for their visa under Tier 4.

International students will still be able to complete their undergraduate studies with a student visa.

Legislation for International Medical Graduates

On graduation from a UK medical school international medical students will be eligible to apply for leave to remain in the UK as a Postgraduate Doctor to undertake a 2 year Foundation Programme and therefore to register with the General Medical Council.

Non-UK/EEA doctors who are graduates of UK medical schools and currently undertaking Foundation Programme training will now be able to apply to the Tier 1 Post-Study Work category in order to take up specialty training posts after they have finished the foundation programme, which follows successful completion of the MBChB Course. 

The UKBA will be amending its Tier 1 Post-Study Work guidance in early 2010 to reflect this development.   International medical students will still require Tier 4 visas to complete the Foundation Programme but will now be able to apply to Tier 1 Post Study Work to continue their postgraduate medical training beyond the Foundation Programme.
