    Whoops nvm I found this http://www.liv.ac.uk/study/undergrad...-requirements/ --- they do accept internationals so relieved!!
    but then if you check Lancaster's site http://www.lancs.ac.uk/shm/med/cme/medicine_mbchb/

    It does say
    At present only home/EU students are eligible to apply for the medical degree programme at Lancaster. Applicants who are classified as overseas are not eligible
    I am not trying to worry you or anything but I just think you should call them and ask about it and see if there is any way round it.

    OMG, I feel so bad for letting you know about it.

    Did you call Lancaster?! You really should! If they say that they can't accept you then ask to be put into another course at the uni for something that is not med so that you don't just waste a choice.

    Best of luck!

    Don't feel bad, it was my fault for not checking clearly I still have three choices left for medicine : Bristol, Birmingham and Liverpool. But I just have a general question, why does Lancaster only have 50 spots, whereas others would have like 200..?

    From what I understand it is because they don't actually run the course as such. Like regularly you watch lectures live from Liverpool or something like that, so then I guess if there were more places and the teaching is like this it will be very difficult for students to do well.

    Other than that I don't see any other reason why they only have 50 places, unless its to do with being a new med school built just to provide more doctors at a time where the numbers were running low..

    As I said, do call them and talk about it. Ask to be put for something else.

    Yepp I called them, they told me to ask my referee to send a letter to UCAS regarding my situation :rolleyes: I hope all goes well. Is it generally extremely competitive in the UK when applying for med schools? I was looking at the amount of med schools in the UK .... And it was 22! We only have 9 or 10 in Canada and you would have to finish an undergrad degree in order to even attempt to apply to med school

    Yes it is VERY competitive in the UK. According to some stats that I can't really quote only 40% of all applicants get in or something like that..

    Are you also applying to unis in your country for an Undergrad?
