How to Apply

All candidates, both home and overseas and including mature and graduate applicants, must apply via UCAS.

The closing date for applications for Medicine is on the 15th October (unless the 15th falls at the weekend).  In 2024, this will be Tuesday 15 October.  Applications received after 15 October will not be considered for admission to medicine at Aberdeen.

Schools, which send on UCAS forms on behalf of their students, are aware of this deadline, and expect students to conform to their time schedule for completion of the forms. However graduate and mature applicants should allow their referee plenty of time for completion of the reference, to avoid the risk of delay.

The UCAS application should be carefully completed following the online guidance. In particular:

  • Candidates can use 4 out of their 5 choices for medical programmes. UCAS will return applications to candidates who have made more than four choices for medicine.
  • UCAS course code Aberdeen pathway is A100
  • UCAS code for Aberdeen is A20.
