    Hi, this is my first TSR threat. By title, I'm wondering about applying to a UK medical school. As an international student (I'm actually from Italy), have I chances to get into a medicine university? And what are the best choices to apply to? I thought Edinburgh, Cardiff an Glasgow. I also considered Imperial but it looks quite impossible by what I've been reading here.

    Yes - it's harder than for English applicants but it's definitely doable. If you're doing your national qualifications the requirements of unis might vary a lot and some of them will probably be quite ridiculous so you need to check them carefully. You will also need to make an effort to find out how the application process works since there are loads of unwritten rules - TSR is brilliant for that so you've come to the right place I'd suggest reading this and making another thread if you have any additional questions.

    The best places to apply to are the places where you have the best chance of getting in based on your individual profile and also where you'd like to spend 5/6 years.

    Thank you! I'm going to e-mail every university I'm interested in. Websites are really chaotic and most of them don't give focused information. Except Oxford and Cambridge (well impossible though), no other gives entry requirements for an Italian applicant. Then there are a lot of valid universities in U.K.! I wish I could visit them before applying but it's difficult so I'm going to choose by internet advice and what my mind feels like.
