Prospective students completing application forms

Applications must be made both through UCAS (online) and direct to the University (on a supplementary form): so, two forms to complete. In addition, you must register for the BMAT entrance test. The closing date for applications to Oxford is 15th October 2021.

  • Your UCAS form should be completed online, and must list Oxford as one of your choices: the course code for the fast-track medical course is A101 (the course title is BMBCh4). You must complete your UCAS application by 15th October 2021 for the course beginning in September 2022. If you wish to express a preference for a particular college, you should do so on your UCAS form. (You may register a first choice college on this form.)
  • The Supplementary Application Form for the University will be available online from 1st September 2021, together with notes explaining how to complete your application. The application form must be completed by 6pm, 15th October 2021. (Sorry, but we can't consider applications that arrive after that date. Please also note that we cannot consider applications that are incomplete: you must complete both a UCAS application and an Oxford application form.) The application form includes questions related to why you wish to study medicine here.  A template of the form, in both Word and PDF, is available so that you can plan your responses in advance. Please note that you are required to identify your two additional referees on the form.
  • An admissions test forms part of our selection process. We will use the BMAT, details of which are available from the BMAT website: this web site also describes the registration procedure for the test. The purpose of the test is to give us a single common point of comparison between all candidates. You must register for this test before you submit your application to the course. Registration for the November test takes place between 1st September and 1st October. Test-takers must not take the test twice in one application round.
  • Shortlisting will take place during November and it is anticipated that online interviews will be held on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th December 2021 (to be confirmed). You must be available for interview on these dates: candidates are not admitted without interview, and it is not possible to arrange interviews at times other than those designated. Please note that this will apply to all applicants regardless of location.
