  • Alright so the website you mentioned on description it says Chemistry is compulsory where Biology and physics mathematic is optional what if a student is giving Biology and psychology in optional would that count ?

  • Hello, +University of Oxford my name is William and I am in 9th grade(or year 9) of school. It is my dream to become a medical doctor and I would love to study at Oxford. I live in the US and I'm planning to apply before I graduate high school and would like to know which place to apply. Would I apply to the college or the medical school to study for my degree? I'm terribly confused by that. I want to specialize in infectious disease/immunology.

  • Im only in year 11 and preparing for my GCSE's, but it will always be an aspiration to study medicine at such a prestigious university. Is it cumpulsory to be a straight A/A* student at GCSE as well as A level to be considered an offer? 

  • Hi +William Velez-Jimenez , at the time of writing you don't apply directly to a college (which in Oxford, Cambridge and a few other places is a constituent part of the larger University) or to a medical school. Instead you apply through the UK's university admissions service, UCAS, while registering to sit the BMAT exam at the same time. Take a look at the link in the description or search "study medicine at oxford" for full details of the application process. Otherwise you can contact our undergraduate admissions office directly for personal advice.

  • hi +Yasmim Franceschi , competition for places at Oxford is very strong, especially for Medicine where we have around ten applicants per place, so even the best exam results cannot guarantee a place. It's even harder for international students for exactly the reason you mention –  at the time of wrting a government-imposed quota means we can only take fourteen Medicine students in your position, classified as international students for fees purposes.

    You can visit the admissions statistics page of the Oxford website to see the actual numbers, but since they're small for any given country in any given year, it's probably quicker just to say –  it is realistic to give it a shot, but sensible to recognise that it's a long shot too! Good luck, and do speak to our undergraduate admissions office if you'd like more specific advice.

  • Hi. Im a Grade 9 student and Im from Philippines. May i ask, Which course are more in demand?? Medicine, Chemical Engineering, or Chemistry? Do you have a specialization in Orthopedic Surgeon for Medicine? Because I felt such curiosity and a little bit nervous on what course will i choose. How can i enroll in Oxford even Im too far?? I want to be an Orthopedic Surgeon and a Chemical Engineer someday. Does the competition for this two courses are difficult?? Thank you for your kind consideration. Hope that you receive this message and please reply back. God B.ess.

  • Hello, I have a question, and I would like to know how is the system of admissions to a Mexican, if I can study for a degree with full scholarship, and obviously the requirements to enter medical school, in advance thanks for taking my comment and give me the necessary help

  • I've heard that it is truly complicated to get accepted into Cambridge or Oxford or etc as an international student, especially as a medical student. Is it true? Does it matter which major or minor I choose?

  • how important is the gcse results? I'm almost done with my exam. To be honest I didn't take these examinations as serious as I could've been . I still believe that I will get good grades but that's As and A*s and 1 or 2 Bs … if you got such results in gcse and in A level you studied harder so got hight results (3A*s) does your chance of being accepted decreases because of your gcse results
