International applicants for other undergraduate programmes

We regret that we are unable to accept applications for all of our other undergraduate healthcare programmes for the 2018/19 intake (including deferred applications to 2019/20) from international fee-status applicants due to our association with the National Health Service (NHS) and restrictions on funding and clinical placements.
