International students

Welcome to Hull York Medical School

We welcome applications from international students who wish to study medicine in the UK. Our environment is friendly, supportive and diverse and you can be certain of a warm welcome.

As the joint medical school of the Universities of Hull and York, we are based on their respective campuses which are only around 35 miles apart. Both offer a vibrant student experience across their distinctive campuses, enriched by a diverse student population. In addition, our partnership with six NHS trusts allows us to offer a wide range of clinical placements across the Yorkshire region.

The staff in the medical school are friendly and helpful. I’m glad to have them to go to for help when I need to.

Number of places

We offer eleven places for international students each year. You must be 18 or over on 1 October in the year you enrol. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept deferred applications from international students.

Here at Hull York Medical School, we have welcomed applicants from across the world including: France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Luxembourg, Spain, Malta, USA, Canada, Singapore, Jordan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Brazil, and Jamaica.

I chose Hull York Medical School as everyone seems very friendly. Problem Based Learning and early clinical contact is a great way to learn medicine – helping to prepare us to work in groups and with patients, which is will be what we will be doing in the future.
