How to apply

The closing date for application for entry each year is October in the year before you intend to start the course, e.g. the deadline for October 2024 entry will be October 2023.

All applications must be submitted via UCAS, and every applicant must register to sit the Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT). See:

Please note, the University of Oxford will not accept BMAT results from the September sitting for A100 Medicine.
