Application process

Application process

You must apply through the Universities Central Admissions Service (UCAS) and submit your application between the 1st September and the 15th October. Applications by any other route, or submitted after the deadline, will not be accepted. We do not accept deferred entry or transfers from other programmes.

At the point of application, all applicants will be provided with a link to a separate online survey, where you will be required to provide us with details of your work experience placements, including a named contact who can confirm what you did and for how long. You will be required to upload verification of your work experience placements via an online portal. This must include written evidence of the number of hours, dates and your role. All work experience verification must be on the official letter headed paper of the organisation that you worked for. We therefore strongly recommend that you ask for letters at the time of your placements, or soon after. A template letter for this can be found here. Applicants successful in gaining an interview to our selection centre will be required to bring with them original copies of the work experience verification. Please DO NOT send letters/references to our Admissions Team. If you do not provide this evidence on the day that you are required to attend the Selection Centre your application may be withdrawn.

Information for General Medical Council applicants.

Multi Mini Interviews (MMIs)

Applicants successful in being shortlisted will be invited to attend Multi Mini Interviews. You will be invited to choose one session from a range of possible dates but we cannot accommodate alternative dates. Morning or afternoon slots are available, and you can expect to be with us for approximately 2 hours. Warwick will select approximately 450 candidates to attend MMIs each year.

Invitations to attend the Multi Mini Interview will be sent out in early December.

Multi Mini Interviews

You will take part in six Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs).

The detail of the exercises may change each year, but the competencies we look for are:

  • Team working
  • Insight
  • Resilience
  • Communication
  • Empathy
  • Probity
  • Respect and dignity

You will be observed and scored on the exercises by trained assessors. They come from a range of backgrounds including medical professionals, academics and lay people with an interest in medical education.

Scores for each exercise are combined and applicants achieving the highest total score will be made an offer.


Offers will be made following the Selection Centre (usually within one month).
