APPLYING FOR MEDICINE
Asked by Chris

How do I decide what unis to apply to for med?

Hi Chris. This is a really important question! I know so many people at UCL who just applied because it’s in London and is known to be a good uni, but it’s about so much more than that! First of all, I’d recommend making a list of unis you want to visit based of things that are important to you such as location, campus/city, what the university specialises in (eg. Particular research speciality, sports, whatever you’re interested in!), teaching style etc. Then I would book to go to open days, and get a feel for the place! Then after that, I’d tailor your application to you. So for example, UCL are really keen on having students who have extra curricular interests, so maybe if you’re really good at a sport and mention it on your PS, then you might apply there. Also you should apply to your academic strengths, so if you did well or lower than what you wanted in either the BMAT/UKCAT, then bade your application on. Apart from that, I would suggest just being open minded, visit as many as possible, and enjoy the process! Going to uni is one of the most exciting times of your life! If you need any help with the application process, just message me! Thanks, Ben.
