Planning an Application for Medicine
This section will help you to plan and prepare an application for Medicine and will assist you with understanding our admissions process and dealing with UCAS. Be sure to check out the rest of the site for information on our course and what it is like to be a student at Aberdeen.
As you know, competition for University places for Medicine is very intense, there being more applicants than there are university places in the UK. As applications are assessed using academic and non-academic criteria, you should make sure you view our web pages: Entrance Requirements and Non-Academic Requirements.
You may now have decided that you hope to join the Medical Profession and that you feel your talents make you a suitable applicant. It is the Admission Selectors' task to confirm or disagree with your beliefs. The UCAS application is the first stage in convincing Selectors that, not only are you sufficiently committed to Medicine to have researched the career appropriately, but that you possess the qualities which we feel are necessary for students, who hope to embark on this career path.
All applications to Aberdeen are given very careful consideration, as we acknowledge that you form part of a highly motivated and talented group of students.
Should you be successful in your application to Aberdeen, we are confident you will enjoy your undergraduate years with us! You will be welcomed, given excellent training and valued, as the "Apprentices" of a Profession, to which your tutors and senior colleagues are proud to belong.
We trust you will find the links on the left-hand side useful in your application and look forward to hearing from you in the future.
