At William Clarence, we are experts in how to apply for medical degrees in the UK. Our knowledge and depth of experience with medical applications enables us to ensure that you benefit from the very best advice and support at every step of the application process. So, whether you are searching for a university or need tailored admissions advice, our experience in advising for families from around the world means we can provide unrivalled advice every step of the way when applying to study medicine. 

From the 2026 entry cycle, there will be a new format for the personal statement. While still in the consultation stages, it’s likely that the traditional free-text approach will be replaced by a series of questions focussing on key themes. Additionally, from 2025 onwards, all medicine courses will exclusively use the UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test)  in their admissions process.

As one of the country’s top higher education consulting firms, William Clarence offers advice and support for students applying to read Medicine or the Medical Sciences. With an exceptional track record of proven success with medical school admissions, each student will have their own specialist admissions consultant who they will work with throughout the application process. To help maximise the chance of admission to study for a medical degree in the UK, your specialist consultant will provide guidance at each stage of the admission process and be a constant support link for you. 

Getting accepted to study medicine is incredibly competitive, which is why when applying for a medical degree in the UK we would usually recommend that work starts two years in advance in order to give the student enough time to prepare a top-class application. However, we have also successfully worked with students from a later start date as well. 

After an initial consultation with one of our specialists, your bespoke medical school application package will include:

  • Assessment of your qualifications and CV - we will analyse your academic history and CV, providing personalised advice on wider reading and academic preparation
