The application is through UCAS like any other university, but make sure you remember the early application deadline of 15th October. You'll also have to take the BMAT, which is an exam that you should be able to take through your school/college, or at least ask them for help.

For a good chance for biomed you'll want good GCSE grades, a good score on the BMAT and then, if you get an interview, you want to appear as someone who is eager to learn and who the tutors think would be an interesting person to teach - especially for biomed, offers are not necessarily made based on who knows the most already, but depending on who has the most potential.

Some other good things to do to show you're interested would be extra reading of biomed books or scientific papers (even if they're out of date and no longer accepted as true, because a lot of the course is based on the scientific process of discovery), and, if you can, online courses in related subjects you find interesting or doing essays (like EPQ) on biomedical topics.
