Application usually starts in March the year before. If you are applying for 2021 intake, you can submit your application from March 2020. Thus, GCE A level students are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as they receive their results.
There is only 1 intake per year in Feb/March.
Students who have completed GCE A levels/IB but are not able to meet the entry requirements can choose to take an Express foundation programme (6 to 8 months). After completing the foundation programme, students will be able to apply with their foundation results. It is important to note that progression from foundation to the medical degree is subjected to final results, the relevant admission test and interview.
Alternatively, students may choose the graduate entry pathway. In this case, students will need to complete a basic degree in any specialisation, preferably in a related field such as biomedicine or biomedical science. Students who have completed a bachelor degree can then apply for a 4-year Doctor of Medicine programme.
You are allowed to resit for ISAT, however there is a 1 year waiting period before you are allowed to rebook the test.
As application to the medicine programme can be a long and complicated process, we strongly encouraged students to engage an education agent to process their applications. At AECC Global, we specialised in one-to-one personalised service, providing end-to-end guidance from course advice and, application processing, to visa application to and accommodation application.
