The application process
How to apply
Applications for most of our undergraduate courses are made through UCAS, the Universities and Colleges Admissions Services. Visit our course pages and click the link to apply for more information.
You will be asked for an institution code. Our institution code is S49 and each of our course pages lists the appropriate course codes.
The application fee for the 2023 cycle is £27 (fee for 2024 cycle is £27.50) if you are applying to more than one university or college, or for more than one programme; or £22.50 if you are just applying for a single programme at one institution (2023 cycle only). For more information, see the UCAS website.
When to apply
We recommend that you submit your application as early as possible. Applications must meet the deadline set by UCAS:
applications to Medicine (A100, A101): 16 October 2023 for Autumn 2024 entry.
applications to all other courses: 31 January 2024 for Autumn 2024 entry.
Many of our programmes require you to attend an interview before we are able to make you an offer. Once we have received and assessed your UCAS application, we will send you details of any requirements if you have been selected to interview. Interviews are an opportunity for us to find out more about you and your suitability for the course you have applied to. They are also an opportunity for you to find out more about us and be sure that St George’s is right for you.

We are proud of our long history in welcoming students from all backgrounds onto our medical, health and science courses. We are committed to a fair and transparent admissions process and regularly review our academic and non-academic entry criteria.
For the majority of our undergraduate and medicine degrees your level 3 (A Levels and equivalent) qualifications or your degree must have been completed within the last five years, including the year of application. This does not apply to graduates who are applying for undergraduate medicine (A100).
You must have at least five GCSE’s and have achieved at least a grade 4 for health degrees, and a grade 6 for science and medical degrees.
We accept A Levels and the International Baccalaureate for all courses. We may also accept BTEC Extended Diploma and Access courses depending on your chosen degree. Please check individual course entry criteria to assess your eligibility.
We will consider T Levels on a case-by-case basis for the following programmes:
- Occupational Therapy BSc
- Healthcare Science BSc
- Radiotherapy & Oncology BSc
The T Levels considered for the above three courses are:
Whilst we typically do not accept T Levels, we will review applicants with T Levels for the following programmes:
- Biomedical Science BSc
- Clinical Pharmacology BSc
We do not currently accept T Levels for the following programmes, but will review the situation further as T Levels become more established:
- Diagnostic Radiography BSc
- Medicine (5-year) MBBS
- Paramedic Science BSc
- Physiotherapy BSc
We accept applications from graduates for some of our undergraduate and medicine courses. You must have a bachelor’s (honours) degree (or overseas equivalent) and meet the minimum grade requirement, according to your entry criteria of your chosen course. Graduate applicants will not be required to meet GCSE or A Level requirements.
We define extenuating circumstances as unforeseen and outside of an applicant’s control. The circumstances must demonstrate that there has been a substantial, serious impact on your academic studies and results.
Extenuating circumstances could be related to health, personal challenges or disability.
We are unable to consider extenuating circumstances in relation to UCAT or GAMSAT scores, or interview performance.
A successful extenuating circumstances application will not result in us accepting applicants who have not met our minimum entry requirements. Instead, applicants who have re-sat or extended the length of their qualifications (or we advise to do so) will be permitted to apply for their chosen course.
For this reason, we only accept extenuating circumstances applications for our A100 Medicine (5-year) programme. This is because other courses consider applicants who are re-sitting, or have re-sat, their level 3 qualifications.
