2020 entry applicants' area
For 2020 entry we have received over 1700 applications for A100 and over 200 applications for A104.
At the moment we are busy checking applications and sending the roles and responsibilities form to admissions tutors for scoring. With such a detailed process it does take quite a while for us to select the highest ranking applicants for interview. Interview notifications will be sent out on a rolling basis and many applicants may not receive a decision until the New Year.
Once you have selected an interview date, you will not be able to change it. We are only able to offer alternative dates for those with extenuating circumstances.
Our selection process requires candidates to be interviewed before any offer can be made. Approximately 600 applicants will be invited for an interview. Interviews are scheduled to take place in December, January, February and March. More details about the interview can be found below and in our Interview section.
An early interview does not indicate a better application or that you are more likely to receive an offer. Offers are based on performance at interview and, in borderline cases, UCAT score.
We have so far completed about a third of our planned interviews and will be continuing to interview through January and February. We plan to start making offers mid-January and all decisions will be sent to UCAS by the 31 March 2020 deadline.
Applicants invited for interview for the A104 Health Foundation Year route may claim for a travel bursary up to a maximum value of £50.00. Applicants will need to complete a travel expense form and provide original receipts within 3 months of travel.
In February, March and April we run Offer Holder Days for those holding offers. This enables candidates to view all the university facilities and talk to staff and students before making their final UCAS decisions.

Individual requests for feedback from unsuccessful applicants only will be considered between 1 April and 31 July 2020.

Exam results and re-marks
Due to the HEFCE quota of places allocated to us as a medical school, our numbers are tightly controlled. Therefore when the A level results are published in August 2019 we will make our decision based on those grades. If you don't meet the academic terms of your offer and subsequently decide to appeal to the Examination Board for a re-mark, you must advise us of this immediately in writing. Our admissions policy states that we may defer entry for applicants who do not initially meet the terms of their offer, but who do so after a re-mark.
