    Nope, it says that you have to apply for Medicine through UCAS..
    There has to be a way to apply directly, right..

    Hey,
    I've applied for a Bsc in Biology and got an unconditional offer. How easy do you think it would be to switch into a Masters and how would I go about it?

    Heya,

    plenty of time to do that, you actually wont need to decide until end of second year, where even those who were signed up for masters wont be allowed to take masters if they didnt pass the exams at a certain grade, so really, there is no hurry, and no need to do anything now, as switch between masters and bsc is the easiest change, as far as I know.

    Hope it helps

    It may be different for internationals, however within the UK you can only apply through UCAS, its essentially an external body that tries to keep everything fair.

    I'm pretty certain internationals have to go through UCAS though.

    It also might be specific to medicine, since the NHS will be providing part of your education (clinical placements), so they want to give everybody and equal chance, and also UCAS includes criminal records information, although you will have to have an additional criminal record check before starting a course

    Hm. That's odd though.
    'Cause I know someone that applied from the US directly to Medicine.

    I'll check it out.
    Thanks guys!

    From the page I linked to:
    Applicants to the Faculty of Medicine.
    If you are applying to the Faculty of Medicine, you should have studied Chemistry to AP level (score of 4 or 5) or equivalent, plus at least one other science subject (Biology, Physics or Maths). All applicants must arrange to take the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT). The exam is administered world-wide and there are many registered venues to choose from. The deadline for all applicants (including international students) taking the test is September in the year prior to the year of course entry. For further information please check the Faculty of Medicine webpage.
    I see no mention of UCAS there?? Am I going blind?

    But when you go to the Medicine website and go to the applying section it says check out UCAS for application and everything. See it?

    Hmm, email medicine admissions. I'd just assumed it was the same direct applicants form that everyone else uses, but maybe not.

    St Andrews usually bases offers only on highers and they see advanced highers as a bonus, the 1 C may prevent you getting an offer based solely on your highers but even 1 A at advanced higher would likely be enough to meet most offers.

    Hey,
    I moved to Scotland about two years ago (the beginning of fifth year) I was wondering if anyone knew what I do regarding tuition fees.

    SAAS website is confusing

    Will SAAS pay my tuition fees even though i will have been living in Scotland for two years? In the St. Andrews booklet they sent me it says you have to be resident in scotland for three years prior to higher education but from what I can make out on SAAS if you currently live in Scotland and have lived in the Uk for three years they will pay them for you...

    Can anyone shed some light on this situation please..

    We have a mountaineering society. We climb the indoor wall at the sports centre which is limited, but then there are weekly trips to Dundee's wall, as well as trips every week to somewhere in Scotland, whether it's hill walking or ice climbing. Or somewhere in between

    Here's the site:

    Hope it helps.
