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.
Before you submit your application, run through our checklist: Am I eligible to apply?.
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, so risking automatic rejection. If you are unsure what to include, contact us before applying and at the latest by 1st October as we may need to see academic transcripts.
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.
If any extenuating circumstances have affected your previous academic performance, please contact us directly prior to application in order that we can advise you on the likelihood of your application being accepted. You will need to provide supporting documentation, such as a letter from your school or college, medical evidence etc. no later than 15th October.
We do not normally accept the results of re-sits taken in a third year of post-16 education and special consideration is only normally given for temporary illness, accident or injury. Long-term illnesses or background problems which affect preparation for an exam or performance in an exam are not normally eligible for special consideration.
If something happens following your application to us that may impact on your examination performance please contact us directly as soon as you can and provide supporting documentation; at the very latest, we will need to know about it by June 30th (IB students) and August 1st (A level students) so that we can take it into account if your final examination grades are lower than hoped.
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.
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 MBBS 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.
