A Levels in General Studies, Critical Reasoning, Citizenship and Key Skills will not be accepted. Graduate applicants must also meet the GCSE requirements. There is no graduate entry point onto the MBChB. Graduates will therefore be required to undertake the full programme.

Edge Hill will consider applications from students who are in the early stages of another non-medical degree who wish to withdraw and/or have not completed a previous non-medical degree, as long as our standard MBChB entry criteria are met. No recognition of prior learning (RPL) will be considered on this basis. They not accept applications from students who wish to transfer from other medical programmes or who have previously started a medical degree but failed to progress. 

A Levels and Scottish Highers

AAA at A level, including Biology and Chemistry, with passes in the practical elements of both subjects, and one other subject. While Biology and Chemistry are both required at grade A or above, where Grade A* is achieved in either Biology or Chemistry (or both Biology and Chemistry), the third A Level subject will be accepted at Grade B or above. A levels in General Studies, Critical Reasoning, Citizenship and Key Skills will not be accepted.

Personal statement

Admissions test

UCAT

Interview method

The top scoring 650 applicants will be invited to attend an assessment half-day at Edinburgh Medical School. The introduction of assessment days for school leavers applying to Edinburgh Medical School is new for those applying for entry in 2020.

The structure of the day is based on a consultation of clinicians and teachers in the medical school about the most important attributes we seek in our medical students. They recommend that applicants learn about the core attributes needed to study medicine and read the outcomes for medical school graduates.

The day will involve four stations and each station will be scored separately by two selectors, marking independently. Applicants will be provided with more information about the Assessment Day if they are invited to attend.

Work experience

Quality of experience is valued over quantity. Applicants should provide clear evidence of reflection on these experiences, showing what personal lessons they took from them and using these to demonstrate an aptitude for medicine. This is drawn upon if invited to the Assessment Day.

Widening participation

Edinburgh Medical School considers a broad range of contextual factors in our selection process. 

The following factors are taken into consideration when making widening access offers:

  • Your home postcode: we look at whether or not you live in a geographical area of the UK that is defined by government data as being an area of deprivation.
  • Your school or college: we look at the academic attainment and, in some cases, the percentage of students from your school or college who progress to higher education.
  • Whether you are care experienced.

The University also supports LEAPS and the Access to the Professions initiatives.
