    I am currently filling out my UCAS application for medicine. I do not have the best of grade but hoping to finish university with at least a 2:1 in biomedical science.

    However looking through entry requirements I was wondering can I apply for other postgraduate courses on the same application or do I make another application on UCASPASS. Does this count as 2 applications? Is this allowed?

    UCASPASS and UCAS are two separate systems.

    You can apply through both within the same cycle - however to accept an offer using one system you'll need to decline your offers on any other system.

    Graduate Entry Medicine courses are A101. You apply for these through UCAS.

    Postgraduate Medicine courses are for those who have already completed a medical degree.

    Are you talking about postgraduate courses in other subjects or in Medicine? Medicine is not a postgraduate course, but does have graduate entry courses which you apply to via UCAS and are funded, unlike the 5 year medicine courses in which graduates have to pay the first 4 years of tuition fees themselves.

    The OP is talking about using UCASPASS (https://www.ucas.com/ucas/postgradua...pply-and-track ) to apply for MA/MSc courses alongside UCAS for GEM

    It's perfectly fine to have concurrent applications through the two different systems.

    (probably worth pointing out that there aren't many HEIs offering postgrad admissions via UCASPASS https://www.ucas.com/ucas/postgradua...dy/what-ukpass most will accept applications directly)

    Well you can apply for Masters courses at a much later date than the application for medicine.

    I'd wait and see how your medicine application goes before applying for a Masters, seems like extra work at a time when it's not needed.

    I was just double checking. There are a lot of people who come on here thinking graduate entry = postgraduate medicine and have looked in UCASPASS for it.

    Check for MScs at the university, they should have some sort of guidelines in
    applying. My MSc course website had instructions and I followed them with a few emails to clarify a few things. Didn't need to use UCAS.
