UEA MEDICINE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

HOW TO APPLY

Applications need to be made via the Universities Colleges and Admissions Services (UCAS), using the UCAS Apply option.

 

UCAS Apply is an online application system that allows you to apply for full-time Undergraduate courses at universities and colleges in the United Kingdom. It is made up of different sections that you need to complete. Your application does not have to be completed all at once. The application allows you to leave a section partially completed so you can return to it later and add to or edit any information you have entered. Once your application is complete, it is sent to UCAS so that they can process it and send it to your chosen universities and colleges.

 

The Institution code for the University of East Anglia is E14.
