Admissions information

If you are thinking of applying to study Medicine at Liverpool, please ensure you read our Liverpool Departmental Supplement 2019 entry.‌ 

In the 2018-19 admissions cycle (or for deferred entry) the personal statement and academic reference will not be routinely considered as part of the decision to invite individuals to interview.  Candidates are advised that they must consider whether to complete our applicant on-line form which captures additional information which will inform our decision making.  Graduates applying to the OMFS route will need to submit an additional OMFS application on-line form.

Please note your on-line form should be submitted in-line with your UCAS application but the on-line form will be available for submission until Sunday 21st October 2018.
