Hi, is the first maintenance loan paid January or September?
Hey, it is paid in January as they wait until the course starts and you have registered.

Hello everyone, I haven’t done my application yet but I was wondering if the interview will be online or not as the website talks about doing the interview at the actual university which is unusual due to Covid.

hi! I wasn't sure either but I think they're going to wait to see what happens with covid to decide. I know that other unis e.g. Kent and Medway had stated that they would have MMI's and prefer for people to come IN for them but then covid got a lot worse so they moved them online.
I guess once you've submitted and (hopefully!) got an interview they will confirm the logistics. Are you international?

They're doing digital MMIs. All selection events should be online due to covid this year.

Hi! I applied directly through the uni (mainly because I used all my UCAS choices). I think it's much easier to apply via the website itself, if that helps?

Are you an international applicant ?

i. No. It is less competitive. Grade requirement is ABB so those who have the grades to get admission to most other UK medical schools whose requirements are usually AAA are likely to get accepted. Having got GMC registration only in 2019 it has still not got well known or built a reputation, good or bad, to international students. Being a private medical school it charges full fees of £38,000 for UK students and therefore gets less home applicants.


ii. MMI. Use Youtube as a start.

iii. My understanding is that MB ChB is at Buckingham. Those doing Foundation courses etc may be at Crewe.

Edit : I stand corrected in the next post by Mina_xo seems that they are now doing medicine at Crewe.

Just to correct, the medicine course is also held at the Crewe campus. The first cohort of crew medical students started this year, 2021.

So there are only 58 crew medical students. There’s about 120 of us Buckingham campus med students from the 2021 cohort. Then of course we have all the medics from the above years, whilst crew only has 1st year medics at the moment.

So how does lectures happen ? Do Crewe Campus medics have separate lectures & lecturers ? Also do applicants have a choice as to which campus they get allocated ?

So is it a total of 178 students in the 2021 year ?

Well at the moment, we are all in the same lectures online due to Covid. We will be on campus from May. So Crewe students will have their own separate lectures and lecturers. The course is structured the same at both campuses.

Yes, applicants can choose whether they want to be at Buckingham or Crewe but if you apply late in the application cycle and one campus is full, you will automatically be placed at the campus that still has spaces left.

And yes, there are roughly 178 students in the 2021 cohort. More than any other year due to the addition of the course at the Crewe campus.

Thanks.

The University website says that as a private school there is no cap on the number of international applicants they may accept. But I would imagine there would be logistical limitations such as clinical placement slots. Would you know the total number they are targeting to reach ? Also how many of the 178 are international students ?

I'm guessing in the next few years as more internationals hear about the school, from others who have joined, it could get more competitive.

I think they meant the proportional rather than an absolute number (i.e. they can't take 3000 international students, but can take 90% international students).

For non-private med schools, the proportion is capped at 7.5%.
