Conditions of your offer

All offers made for our Medicine degrees are subject to a series of academic and non-academic conditions. You need to meet these in order to be able to take up your place with us.

If Nottingham is your insurance choice, please ensure you still meet all of the conditions as this will allow us to confirm your place more quickly in the event you are unable to attend your first choice university.

If you fail to provide us with any required materials or information within the stipulated timeframes, then the conditions of your offer will not have been met and your offer is likely to be withdrawn. 

Academic conditions

Undergraduate Medicine at the University of Nottingham and University of Lincoln

  • You must meet the grade requirements outlined on UCAS Hub before beginning the course.

Graduate Entry Medicine

  • You must provide us with any outstanding identity documents by 12 June 2024
  • You must meet the degree and any other requirements outlined on UCAS Hub by 20 July 2024.
  • We need to receive your degree certificate (or a final ratified transcript of studies if you don't have your certificate) by 20 July 2024. The only exception is if you receive an offer after this date. We do not accept letters from course leaders or chairs of exam boards.

Non-academic conditions

Health clearance

You'll be asked to complete a confidential online occupational health questionnaire. This will be sent out from June 2024, you should aim to complete this immediately to avoid delays with your application.

The university may need to carry out a full assessment of your support needs in order to ensure that it can fully meet its legal obligations to you. Very occasionally, the university may determine that it is not able to provide the support required, in which case the offer will be withdrawn. 

If you disclose a disability, the University Accessibility Unit may contact you to discuss possible reasonable adjustments to support you with your studies. 

As part of the health clearance, we need to make sure you're fit to study and fit to practice.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you complete the occupational health process to be cleared as fit to study. Failure to complete this means you have not complied with the requirements of your course and will not be able to start with the rest of your cohort.


Covid-19 vaccination

While we still encourage all eligible students to become fully vaccinated against Covid-19, there is currently no impediment to you starting your course, regardless of your Covid-19 vaccination status.


Police clearance

All UK medical schools are required to ensure that all medical students undergo police clearance.

You'll need to have an Enhanced DBS check. We'll contact you with more information on the steps you'll need to take before you start your course.

Non-UK residents (excluding the Republic of Ireland) need to obtain a police check from their home country and this must be received by the end of August or, if you're applying for Graduate Entry Medicine, you will need your police clearance by start of August 2024. The only exception to this is if you receive an offer after this date.

Fitness to train

All UK medical schools have a duty to ensure that no member of the public is harmed as a consequence of participating in the training of medical students.

If your conduct falls below the high standards of behaviour expected, your offer may be revoked.


Follow regulations and policies

Medical students will be expected to comply with regulations and policies required by your local campus. This may include the University of Nottingham, the University of Lincoln, the School of Medicine, and Lincoln Medical School.

We'll provide more detailed information about these regulations and policies will be made available to you when you start your course.
