You have the option to declare your disability on your UCAS form. This information is screened from our assessors and will not be taken into account when considering your application.
Invitation to interview
Should we invite you to interview with us, we will ask you if there are any reasonable adjustments we can make that will enable you to access the interview process on an equal footing.
We may ask you to provide evidence of eligibility for extra time, etc., but we will not ask for details of your condition, and this will not impact our assessment of your interview performance.
If you firmly accept an offer to study with us, and have declared a disability on your UCAS form, your allocated University campus will contact you to provide additional details of how to access the student support services available to you whilst you study with us.
All candidates who firmly accept an offer from us will be sent an Occupational Health assessment form which includes health screening and immunisation, in the June of the year they are due to start studying with us. This must be completed and returned before taking up your place with us.
Our Occupational Health teams at the University of Hull and the University of York will consider:
- Possible effects on your health of a demanding and intensive medical course
- Whether, and in what ways, your clinical contact with patients should be modified
- Whether you will need any reasonable adjustments so that you can complete the Medicine programme satisfactorily
Very rarely, the decision may be taken that a disability or condition makes an applicant unsuitable to study medicine, on the grounds of patient safety or inability to meet the General Medical Council Outcomes for Graduates guidance and fitness to practice requirements. This decision will only be taken after full discussion and consideration by our Fitness to Practise committee.
