Universities and Colleges Admissions Service
Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) is an independent organisation that runs the centralised admissions service for higher education courses in the United Kingdom. In 2017, UCAS handled 2.85 million applications from almost 700,000 students. With the exception of a few private universities, virtually all UK universities use UCAS as their means of receiving applications. This means that both home (UK/EU) and international students who want to apply for an undergraduate degree at a UK university must do so through UCAS.
Application fees are £13 if you apply for a single course or £24 if you apply for two or more courses. While the application deadline is typically in January, your deadline is 15 October 2019 if you are applying for Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine, or Veterinary Science; or if you are applying to Oxford or Cambridge for any course.
All applications are made via the UCAS website (https://www.ucas.com). Here is a step-by-step guide of the application process and things you should look out for as a medical applicant.
