Degree Qualification FAQs

I graduated from a non-UK medical school, what do I need to provide as proof of my degree qualification?

You must have a valid medical degree recognised by the GMC by the start of the programme.

You must have written approval from your medical school Dean (Dean’s nominated representative) of your suitability to apply for the programme. This is in the form of a Dean’s statement. Please refer to the Eligibility Applicant Guidance on the Eligibility Information page.

Does the Dean’s Statement need to be handwritten or typed?

The content of your Dean’s statement needs to be legible. This can be either handwritten or typed. The Dean’s Statement and guidance for completion is available on the Eligibility Information page.

My degree certificate is not in English, can I still apply?

Yes. If your degree certificate is not in English, an official English translation must also be provided.
