Entry Requirements - MCAT

We accept MCAT dated within the two years of your application. Applicants who meet the minimum entry requirements will be ranked. The applicants who have the highest score will then be invited to attend our Assessment Centre in June – please note that we can only consider one test score.

Further information about entry requirements can be found on the MBChB-USA course page.

About our interviews

We take a personal approach by meeting candidates in person. We recognise the additional cost to attend an interview in Leicester and therefore offer a Travel Bursary of £1,000 to successful applicants on completion of enrolment to the programme. You will be invited to submit evidence of your travel i.e. your flight ticket and will receive £1,000 off your course fee once you have completed the enrolment process in September – further information will be sent to you together with your offer letter.


Interviews will be conducted in Leicester, UK on June 13 and June 14 2019. The interview format will be Multiple Mini Interview. On the day of the interview you will also have a welcome and orientation meeting, introduction to our curriculum and facilities, a visit to student housing, and an opportunity to meet with some of our current students.

Enrolment and fees

The course starts on the first week of September.

In order to enrol, you will need to pay a deposit of £1,000
