    Hi guys,

    I'm a year 11 student in India studying in the CBSE board. I've been looking into getting in a university in the UK to study medicine since a while now, and I'm aware of everything I need to do. Everything seemed to be going for me until The University of Glasgow notified me that the CBSE board is not eligible for getting into their uni. And it seems its the same for the University of Edinburgh.

    Now what I need assistance in, is I'd like to know which uni would be able to accept a graduate from the CBSE board.

    Excuse the errors if any, I'm horribly flustered atm.

    Thanks in advance, looking forward to a reply ASAP.

    Heyy, I think there are some medical schools in the UK that do accept CBSE. Check out Hull-York Medical School. Be warned, you will need a minimum of 95% marks to get in and pay almost £25000 to £30000 per year as tuition fee plus roughly £8000 per year as living expenses, as you are a foreign student. So, around 35-40 lakhs per year (so at least 1.8 crores for the degree).

    If you have already found any Medical schools, then well done and best of luck with your application

    It's worth realising that, for medicine, there are only a handful of places nationally for international students. This is because the NHS funds the training and offers placements, and they don't want to spend their scarce resources training students who will never work in the NHS.

    Make sure that you have a very strong back up plan, be that studying medicine in another country, or doing another degree in the UK.

    Hi
    Can you let me know which college you got into?

    Did more kids from other colleges also get into the same medical school in the following years??

    Would you also be aware of any other CBSE board kids getting into any other medical schools in the UK?

    Hi there!

    I'm a CBSE graduate who applied for medicine 2016 entry!

    Only about 15-30% of med schools in the U.K. accept CBSE grads.
    So, It is definitely more competitive for us since our options are quite limited.

    Here are the med schools I applied to(they do accept cbse students):

    Birmingham
    Leeds
    Brighton and sussex medical school
    Queen's university Belfast
    Kings college London(for Biomed)

    I do know that the following unis also accept students from CBSE curriculum ( Don't quote me on this though):

    King's college London(Medicine)
    Newcastle
    Dundee
    Cardiff( only for the 6 year course)
    Liverpool
    Imperial college london
    Lancaster
    Bristol
    University of east anglia

    I'm sure there are more than this, but you'll have to contact the universities to find out.

    If have other questions regarding getting into medicine in the U.K. do not hesitate to contact me!
