Thank you for your interest in undergraduate study at Queen Mary. This page provides advice and guidance for completing your application form.
Applications for our undergraduate programmes should be made online through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS)*.
You can choose up to five courses in your UCAS application. You can apply for more than one course offered by a university - just make a separate entry for each choice.
You can only choose four medicine and dentistry courses in your application but you can add a fifth choice as long as it is a different subject.
Our institution code is Q50. You'll need this as well as your UCAS course code, which you can find on your chosen course page from the course finder.*If you are applying from any of the following regions, please contact the Admissions team to register your interest:
The application deadline for equal consideration for the majority of Queen Mary courses is 31 January 2024. We encourage you apply through UCAS as early as possible.

Questions about applying through UCAS?
As part of the application process for our Medicine and Dentistry programmes, you will need to sit the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT).
Register for UCAT
This test is in addition to meeting the standard academic entry requirements and assesses your suitability for medical and dental study. Find out more about our admissions requirements for medicine and dentistry.
We also offer a five-year degree in Malta as an alternative to the standard London-based MBBS. Applications for our Malta-based Medicine programme should apply directly to Queen Mary, rather than via UCAS.

At Queen Mary, we do not consider extenuating circumstances in assessing academic qualifications for entry onto our programmes. We appreciate there may be circumstances, outside an applicant’s control, that they feel may have impaired their assessment performance and ability to meet our minimum academic entry requirements and, in these instances, we advise applicants raise this with their previous school/institution or examination board so that they can factor it in when awarding grades.
Our entry requirements clearly state the minimum academic grade applicants need to attain, as well as required or cognate subjects needed, where applicable. In circumstances where an applicant has not attained the minimum required grade for entry, due to extenuating circumstances, we will have expected applicants to have notified their school, university or examination board and outlined the circumstances that have impacted their learning. Where applicable, we would expect this to be considered in the final examinations or assessments and reflected in the final grades awarded. Queen Mary will therefore not further consider these circumstances as part of its decision making.
Education providers and examination bodies can provide reasonable adjustments for disabilities or long-term conditions (including specific learning differences and mental health diagnoses) that may affect students during their studies or examinations and we would expect that adequate and appropriate measures would have been put in place. Circumstances like this would not be considered as extenuating circumstances.
Queen Mary’s mission is to create a truly inclusive environment where we support talented students regardless of their background or personal experience, please be aware that extenuating circumstances are separate to our Contextual Admissions criteria and guidance.
