US and Canadian students can study on the five-year MBBS (Malta) Programme directly after high school without first undertaking a four-year college undergraduate degree. Students may apply to stay in Malta for their early postgraduate training at the end of the five-year MBBS (Malta) programme or apply for residency in their home country, without having to undertake a four-year postgraduate medicine qualification.
The Sponsor Note on our listing in the World Directory of Medical Schools (WDOMS) confirms that the MBBS degree, awarded by the Barts & The London School of Medicine in Malta, is acceptable to the Education Commission of Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). This means that current students and graduates of this medical school are eligible to apply for ECFMG certification. If the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Steps 1 and 2 CK and Step 2 CS requirements are satisfied, graduates may continue and take Step 3. This acceptability by ECFMG also allows our students and graduates to sit Part 1 of the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE).

The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is an admissions test, used by a consortium of UK Universities and non-UK associate member universities to help select applicants for their medical and dental degree programmes.
It is used in collaboration with other admissions processes, such as academic qualifications.
It is also your opportunity to stand out from other applicants and demonstrate your aptitude for a demanding programme of study.
The UCAT is a computer-based test delivered in Pearson VUE test centres throughout the UK and worldwide. More information on the UCAT and how to register can be found here.
How we use the UCAT
Applicants will be selected for interview on the basis of a weighted score compared to other applicants who apply in the same year, and may be comprised of UCAT score, qualifications predicted or achieved or weighted scoring of degree for graduates. Selection after interview may consider all assessment factors: interview score, situational judgement test, qualifications predicted or achieved or weighted scoring from degree, and UCAT score.
UCAT exemptions/waivers are not granted under any circumstances. If you are unable to take the UCAT for any reason, our advice will be to reapply for the following application cycle.
The UCAT ANZ is accepted by students applying from Australia or New Zealand.
