For the 2021 admissions cycle, most applicants have until 10 June 2021 to make their firm and insurance choices.
This is the case even if you have deferred your entry to 2022.
Make sure you keep this date in mind as UCAS might decline your places on your behalf if they don’t hear from you.
Most applicants will hear from us on A Level results day which, this year, is on 10 August 2021.
You may have your place confirmed before this date if you are taking a qualification where the results are released earlier, but generally, don’t worry if you don’t hear until then.
Yes, we will consider any request to defer.
Requests which are received by us before an offer has been made will be accepted, whilst requests after an offer has been made are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Please contact Admissions on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your situation.
Last year, we ran a process to allow applicants who were unable to take the exams needed to meet the conditions of their offer, or were unhappy with their issued grades, to have their conditional offers reinstated for 2021 entry instead. We asked applicants in this position to complete an online form. If you are an applicant who took part in this process, the questions below may help in understanding what is happening with your application.
I have not received an update on UCAS Track, what shall I do?
We are in the process of issuing conditional offers to all eligible applicants in your position. You will have an update on UCAS Track by 20 May 2021.
I have received an update on UCAS Track, what are the next steps?
If you registered to sit your exams as part of the autumn series only, we have now received your results via UCAS.
We will be in contact with you to discuss your results and we will continue to update you by email.
Please be aware that most of our programmes include Fitness to Practise conditions, so it is unlikely that you will receive an unconditional offer from us until the summer, even if you know you have now met the academic conditions of your offer. We aim to have contacted everyone in this position by 31 March 2021.
If you have applied for our 5-year undergraduate Medicine programme, you should have already heard from us. If we have not been in contact, please do not hesitate to email the Admissions team quoting your ID number and the subject line ‘Reinstated offer: Autumn series’.
If you registered to sit your exams across the autumn and summer series, or the summer series only, we know you may be feeling worried about the impact of the summer exams being cancelled.
The Government has confirmed that this year, students will receive grades awarded and determined by teachers and that applicants who are studying independently can receive a grade via their exam board. We will confirm your offer based on these grades.
We will not be asking you to complete any other form of assessment, and our admissions process will continue in the same way as in previous years.
We will be updating these FAQs for applicants in this position as soon as we have further information, and more information about private applicants can be see above.
Instructions on how to complete your Fitness to Practise requirements will be sent to those holding a firm offer by mid-June 2021.
Offer holders are still required to meet the English Language conditions of their offer, as set out in their offer letter.
One of our most frequently requested English Language tests is IELTS, who are publishing country-specific updates. Further information can be found here.
A list of alternative English Language tests that we accept can be found on our website. This includes the internet-based TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) which you are able to complete from home. More information about this test can be found on the TOEFL website.

If you are unable to take an any of the alternative English Language tests listed on our website, we may consider the IELTS Indicator test. Please contact Admissions on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your situation before proceeding.
