Oxbridge and St Andrews transfer students

QMUL has a special arrangement to enable students to gain direct entry to year 3 of the MBBS, where they have completed three years of a six year medical programme at Oxford, Cambridge or St Andrew’s universities.

We summarise the funding arrangements below for the 2018/19 academic year. If you are an English domiciled student, funded by Student Finance England, click here. If you are a Scottish domiciled student, funded by SAAS, click here.

You can find detailed information about each element of SFE and NHS funding described below in the advice guide ‘Funding for Medical and Dental Students’. In that guide you can also find information about additional sources of funding, such as university hardship funds. 

ENGLISH DOMICILED STUDENTS, FUNDED BY SFE (STUDENT FINANCE ENGLAND):

• You will also be eligible for an income assessed Queen Mary Bursary 

You can only get a QMUL Bursary in your first year. To be assessed for a QMUL Bursary, you just need to have had an income assessment as part of your Student Finance application. Unless you or the person on whose income your application is assessed have indicated otherwise, the household income information will be passed to the QMUL Bursaries, Grants and Scholarships office by SFE. BGS will then email you, usually in semester one, if you are eligible for a Bursary. The Bursary is paid to you in two equal instalments, in February and May.
