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, please check carefully through our Entry Requirements page to ensure that you meet our all of our criteria.
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 that would mean you don't meet our standard entry criteria, you will need to complete an admissions form and send this to the admissions team along with 2 pieces of documentary evidence to support your claim. Suitable evidence would be for example a doctors note , a letter from a teacher/supervisor or a letter from an exam board.
All mitigating circumstances claims must be submitted by 1st October 2016 and must contain a completed admissions form a two pieces of supporting evidence. We are unable to process any claims that do not meet these requirements. We will endeavor to reply to your claim within 2 working weeks.
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 30 June (IB students) and 01 August (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.
