    I'm currently looking at three universities (for the future xD): Manchester, Edinburgh and Bristol. I'm planning on studying medicine and I have a question on the interviews. I know Edinburgh doesn't do interviews but for Manchester and Bristol, since I am an international student, if I get invited for an interview will I have to fly over to the UK or is there some alternate way? Thanks guys

    Some medical schools will have overseas interviews, usually they're in East Asia and mainly Singapore or Malaysia from what I remember. The best way to know would be looking at their websites as it will usually say, if not then contact them and see. If you have to fly over to the UK they'll usually be a bit more lenient with your interview dates so if you have a few interviews you can do them in the space of one trip, and it'll give you a better chance to look around the university.

    Better ask the unis directly.
    During my time, my uni still did interviews in Malaysia, Singapore etc but now they switched it over to just uk interviews,
    Tbh, medicine is so competitive nowadays and sometimes putting an extra effort to go there for interviews might help improve your chances.
