Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), a Russell Group university in the UK has opened its first overseas medical campus in Malta, a Mediterranean island in Southern Europe. We are now accepting applications for September 2017 entry and our application deadline is 31st March 2017.
If you have students who are interested in studying Medicine, please could you forward them this email and ask them to get in touch with us so that we can send more information. We would also be more than happy to speak to yourself or any of your colleagues about QMUL Malta.
|Application deadline for 2017 entry
31 March 2017
Candidates apply directly to the university, not via UCAS. Therefore students who have already applied to a UK Medical School for 2017 entry can also apply for the QMUL Malta programmes outside of their four UCAS Medicine choices.
We are offering two medical programmes:
- A five-year Medicine MBBS Malta (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) undergraduate programme.
- A one-year Medicine Foundation programme (Certificate in Clinical Foundation Studies Malta*) suitable for any student from a country where the education system finishes at the equivalent level of Year 12 (age 16-17) in the UK. This programme, if successfully completed, will allow students to progress onto the above Medicine MBBS. *subject to approval
Both medicine programmes follow the same core curriculum as the QMUL programmes taught in London.

The two programmes will be taught by Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, a leading UK Medical School which is a faculty of QMUL. Barts and The London was formed out of the oldest hospital in Europe, St Bartholomew’s (known as ‘Barts’) which was founded in 1123, and England’s first medical school, The London, which opened in 1785.
We accept a large variety of qualifications including the International Baccalaureate, details of the qualifications are displayed on the programme web pages.
All candidates applying for the MBBS Malta or Foundation Malta programmes must take the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT).
For 2017 entry, candidates may have already taken the UKCAT between 1 July and 5 October 2016. The UKCAT registry closed 21 September 2016.
Candidates also have the opportunity to take the UKCAT in July 2017. We will accept applications without a UKCAT from suitable academically qualified applicants who will be ranked for interview on academic criteria alone. In these cases all students, who successfully pass the interview stage of the selection process, will need to do the UKCAT test in the 2017 sitting by July 31st 2017.
Candidates who have taken the UKCAT already will not need to re-sit.
