Libby Charlton

Senior Academic Administrator (Admissions and Year 3)

I am responsible for the administration of the selection procedures for both the pre-clinical Medicine course and Biomedical Sciences, and for the administration of teaching and assessment for students preparing for their Final Examinations in Year 3. I work closely with the Director and Deputy Director of Pre-clinical Studies and the Course Director for Biomedical Sciences on all aspects relating to the two courses and am involved in the formation of policies and regulations, as well as their implementation.

My main duties include:


Administration and co-ordination of administrative activity relating to admissions to the Pre-clinical Medicine course and to the Biomedical Sciences course.

Administration and co-ordination of the annual admissions exercise for the Medicine and Biomedical sciences, including management of the shortlisting process and interview scheme, data analysis and reporting and servicing the committees which review the admissions process.

With the Academic Administrator I organise admissions-related events: currently three open days per year and, in conjunction with the University Admissions Office, two UNIQ summer schools.

I deal with phone and email enquiries from prospective applicants all year round.
