Admission Feedback & Appeal Guidelines

Applicants who applied for entry to the Part II clinical programmes – medicine (MBChB), optometry (BOpt), pharmacy (BPhar) – may request feedback on their MMI performance if they were unsuccessful in obtaining an offer of place. To request feedback please contact the FMHS Student Centre.

Applicants may appeal admission decisions made by the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences. Please note that the grounds for appeal are limited to matters of process related to the prescribed application procedure. It cannot consider matters of professional judgement.

The first step would be to speak with a Student Academic Adviser at the Faculty Student Centre if you need to discuss the process of an appeal  or require any assistance.
