How to Apply

All candidates, both home and overseas and including Mature and Graduate applicants, must apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

All applications should be made online. Applications can be submitted from the beginning of September for admission for September of the following year or for deferred entry for the following year.

If you are a school student, your school will supervise the submission of your application, including the provision of your reference.

If you are a Graduate or Mature applicant, you will need to manage and submit the application yourself. This will include obtaining a copy of your reference to be included with the remainder of your application.

The closing date for applications for Medicine is 15 October. Applications received after this date are marked "LATE" but will be forwarded to the University by UCAS up to 26 May of the year of entry.
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 or Mature applicants should allow 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 course code for Sri Lanka pathway is A105
  • UCAS code for Aberdeen is A20.
