    Hey guys! I want to apply for Medicine and at most of the universities you have to be 18 before the start of the second term. Don't really want to take a gap year though However, i couldn't find any info about the age requirements on the Oxford website, that may be a stupid question, but does that mean you can be 17 to get there?

    It's worth contacting Oxford about this, but I highly doubt they'll be an exception, and you'll still have to be 18.

    There are no age requirements for Oxford. This is true of a number of unis - it just depends on what insurance they've negotiated.

    Source for the lack of an age requirement if you're interested.

    There were quite a few international students who started aged 17 at Sheffield. They all turned 18 within the first year, but not necessarily within the first term. Just putting it out there in case you're planning to apply to a few different places!

    If you are willing to change your desired course because you dont like the idea of a gap year, perhaps medicine at Oxford is not a good choice...
