Next steps

What happens next

As soon as your place is confirmed and your status on the UCAS Hub is 'unconditional firm', there are some things you will need to do.

In preparation for the start of the academic year, both our universities as well as ourselves will be in touch with you.

You will receive joining instructions to your personal email address detailing what to do – please read it carefully.

Hull York Medical School

We will contact you with details about the following:

  • Setting up your Hull York Medical School IT account – this is an important first step as all correspondence and instructions from us will be sent to your Hull York Medical School email address
  • Your online ICT induction
  • Your additional requirements or adjustments (if identified in your Occupational Health assessment)
  • Obtaining your DBS check for entry onto the programme
  • Our Welcome Event – this will be held on the York campus on Monday 26 September (transport will be provided for Hull based students)
Universities of Hull and York

Both universities will contact you about the following:

  • Setting up your University IT accounts for both Universities – this ensures that your library, email and IT access works for both sites (you will need this for future years)
  • Enrolment
Your home University

Your home campus (the University of Hull or the University of York) will contact you about the following:

  • Confirming your accommodation
  • Arranging your finances and tuition fees
  • Your university induction
  • Tasks for international students

Getting your Covid-19 vaccine

The health and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors is, and always will be our top priority. Getting vaccinated against Covid-19 is one of the best ways we can look after ourselves and each other. That’s why we are currently asking our students to get vaccinated as soon as they can.

If you're eligible, we strongly encourage you to get an NHS Covid-19 vaccination before you start at Hull York Medical School in September. This will help to protect you and your new university friends and support us to keep campus open.

Getting ready to arrive

You may be both excited and perhaps a little nervous about starting medical school, but remember, we are here to support you.

We have put together this handy guide to get ready to arrive, including information about:

  • your induction
  • your student experience, including student societies and the Medic Parent scheme
  • finance and budgeting
  • looking after your health
  • student support
