Oxbridge, Medicine, Veterinary & Dentistry

Students looking to apply to these courses need to start researching and preparing for their applications in the summer term in order to ensure they put in a competitive application. 

The deadline to apply to any course at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, or for most courses in medicine, veterinary medicine/science, and dentistry is 15 October, which is significantly earlier than the 15 January deadline for most other courses.

Students applying to these courses will receive full support from the school.  Please watch this presentation if you would like further information about applying to Oxbridge/Medicine/Veterinary/Dentistry courses.
