Hi there, I was wondering if any St Andrews Medics knew anything about transferring to Cambridge for placements after 3 years at St Andrews (for Medicine). Does such a thing exist and is it really competitive?

I believe it’s only the top student TCLCuckoomedic2026 might be able to confirm?

I don’t really see the attraction tho as you leave all of your friends behind

Hi, most people stay with the partner school they are allocated in second year by St Andrews but independent applications are possible and doable but there are different procedures in place for this and the university does not usually offer support for such applications. Cambridge I believe would require top marks (17+) plus other application requirements that is if they are willing to accept applicants for clinical years as this can change year on year and can be highly competitive. I am not an independent applicant so cannot unfortunately offer more insight than this.
