To apply to study at HYMS, use the normal UCAS application procedure. Apply directly to us (our institution code is H75), not to the University of Hull or the University of York.
We only accept applications for our full five-year MB BS course -- there is no accelerated graduate entry programme -- and all applicants must take the UKCAT test in the year they apply.
The UCAS form
Your form must include details of all your formal academic qualifications obtained so far, including those obtained at age 16 (or the end of middle secondary education). We won't be able to process your application without this information.
Please note that a pre-IB year in itself is not an acceptable equivalent to GCSEs.
Your application must reach UCAS by the published closing date, usually 15 October of the year before the course starts. We don't accept late applications.
You must be available to attend an interview on one of our pre-arranged dates between December and February.
We have 140 places on our course each year. Ten of these places are for international students. There are no other quotas of places reserved for special categories, as we treat all applications equally.
We welcome applicants who have taken a gap year before coming to HYMS, because so many students find the extra experience beneficial. You can make your application to us either before your gap year (for deferred entry), or during your gap year. Either way, you must still be able to attend an interview on one of our fixed dates between December and February.
If you decide to take a gap year, please mention this in your UCAS personal statement, and include a very brief summary of what you hope to do or what you did during the year.
Transfers and re-applications
We don't accept transfer students from other medical schools under any circumstances. This is because of the integrated nature of our course.
We don't accept applications for our full MB BS course from anyone who has been enrolled at another medical school in the UK or abroad.
If you apply to us and you're unsuccessful first time around, we will accept a second application from you in a subsequent year. We consider re-applications on an individual basis, and we may use information from your first application when we assess the second. We will not normally consider a third or subsequent application.
