Admissions statistics

This data has been produced for the Admission cycles 2014-15 to 2017-18 to help you understand the competition for places on the medical degree programme, and your likelihood of being called for interview, being made an offer or becoming a student.

You will note that Lancaster Medical School makes more offers than we have places available. This is to take account of the fact that not all applicants will accept our offer and not all offer-holders achieve the grades required.
