Lancaster Medical School welcomes applications from international students with an excellent academic track record who also fulfil our non-academic entry requirements. We have four places available for international students in addition to the 125 places available for UK and EU applicants.
International applicants should apply through UCAS.
All applicants to Lancaster Medical School are considered by our four stage selection process.
In addition to demonstrating an excellent academic track record, you must have engaged in some relevant work experience and undertaken voluntary work, preferably in a caring environment. You must write about these experiences in your personal statement and reflect on what you learned about being a doctor and about yourself from these experiences.
Not all international qualifications are considered adequate preparation for our medical degree programme. For details of some accepted qualifications, read our guidance document - if the qualification that you are completing does not appear in the list, please email email@example.com for further details.
You must study English as part of your secondary education and achieve the equivalent of GCSE English grade B/6 or above. For those offering IGCSE, please note only English as a First Language is acceptable.
If you are applying from outside the UK or if English is not your first language, you must demonstrate proficiency in English through one of the following recognised English Language qualifications: either IELTS (a minimum score of 7.0 with no component less than 7.0) or the Pearson PTE Academic qualification (at least 70 overall and at least 70 in each communicative skill sub-test).
This is in addition to the academic entry requirements. Applicants must demonstrate their English language proficiency before application. Applicants who do not include details of their English language proficiency qualification on their UCAS application will not be considered. English language qualifications must be less than two years old at the time of application.
No offers are made without interview, and therefore all applicants must be prepared to travel to Lancaster University for interview, with no guarantee of being successful. Interviews are generally held in January and February. Lancaster Medical School will endeavour to give international applicants at least six weeks' notice of interview dates if they are called for interview.
In 2020-21, international students will be required to pay university tuition fees plus an annual supplement to cover the cost of clinical placements. This supplement is likely to be around £20,000 per annum. Lancaster Medical School will confirm the 2020-21 university tuition fees and clinical placement supplement for international students commencing their studies in 2020-21 as soon as possible.
Tuition fees are revised annually and we will endeavour to give you at least 12 months' notice of any increases in tuition fees. Further information about living costs.
For Islands applicants, the fee structure can be found on our central pages.
