Applications to the Gradate Entry Medicine programme close in the October the year prior to the chosen year of entry. Please check UCAS for the exact date depending on your year of entry. All applications are made via UCAS.
Our Medical Education Scholarships are open to eligible students on the Graduate Entry Medical Programme, commencing August 2021. We are also currently working with local banks to explore favourable loan arrangements for students.
The GAMSAT does not have an established pre-set minimum score. The standard set for the required score is unique for each GAMSAT test and will take place on receipt of the results for the cohort of applicants.
The School will take a slightly different GAMSAT cut off score each year to determine how many students to invite for interview, and this depends on the overall number of applicants and the overall GAMSAT result profile nationally.
Medical schools will usually provide applicants with a mean GAMSAT threshold based on the preceding three years’ cohorts. We will do this in due course.
In the meantime, we can confirm that applicants must score a minimum of 50 for each element of the GAMSAT in order to be considered for interview. There is no compensation between the three elements, and we currently double weight the Science component

Our current understanding is that you will be entitled to enter the Republic of Ireland Internship programme.
UK graduates are not beholden to undertake the UK Foundation Programme, although at present to gain full registration with the GMC they have to successfully complete FY1. If you wish to apply for IMC registration rather than GMC registration, this is fine.
