Medicine admissions

to the MBChB degree programme

Transfers into Medicine

Applications from applicants studying medicine at another institution

The University of Glasgow Medical School does not normally consider applications from applicants studying medicine at another institution, unless there is a formal transfer system between Medical Schools.

Transfers from a degree programme other than medicine

It is not possible to transfer onto MBChB at the University of Glasgow from another degree. Applicants who have commenced the first year of a degree programme other than medicine can apply through UCAS and have their application considered for entry to Year 1, providing they meet our standard entry requirements, with required grades/qualifications obtained within seven years of the proposed entry date.

Transfer requests from Refugees/Asylum Seekers

At present the University of Glasgow Medical School does not accept transfers from students studying medicine at other institutions. However, the Medical School will consider undergraduate medical students who are seeking asylum or have refugee status, under extenuating circumstances. All standard entry requirements must be met and an interview will be required for those being considered further.

Prior to applying, it is strongly recommended that you confirm your fee status (Scot/EU, Rest of UK or International) and that you clarify your eligibility with potential funding providers, as you may not be eligible for government student finance (SAAS).

Successful transfers are likely to be permitted entry into Year 1.

Please contact med-sch-admissions@glasgow.ac.uk for further information.

For all other matters relating to asylum or refugee status, please contact the Scottish Refugee Council in the first instance.
