Scholarships Application

Queen Mary University of London MBBS Malta Scholarships

We are offering scholarships for our Queen Mary Malta course in Medicine. These scholarships will be awarded on academic merit.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, you will need to have completed an MBBS Malta course application in addition to this form.

Further information

Am I eligible to apply?

To be eligible to apply for the scholarships you must:

  • Submit a completed MBBS Malta
  • Submit a completed scholarship application by Saturday 30 June 2018.

Scholarship criteria

The scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis and are open to all candidates. They are also awarded proportionately, depending on numbers of applications from undergraduate and graduate entry students.

All scholarships will be awarded based on applicants’ performance in the following measures:

  • UCAS tariff points or international equivalent (50%)
  • UKCAT score (50%)

The units of assessment will be weighted as outlined above using the score the candidate achieves in each of the two criteria.

Graduates who meet the minimum academic criteria will be ranked against the other graduate applicants applying in that year according to 50:50 weighting applied to the UKCAT score and academic ability as measured using a points weighting of degree classification or postgraduate degrees.

In the event of a tie between candidates, the scholarship selection panel may, at its discretion, refer to the candidates' scores at interview and answers to Question 3 of the scholarship application form to reach a decision to award the scholarship(s).

Once a student has been awarded the scholarship and started the course it will be retained by the student until the end of their programme, assuming they meet the necessary criteria to progress through the course each year, i.e. they fulfil the examination and professional requirements.

Application and awarding process

Scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis. To qualify, applicants will need to meet the minimum requirements listed below:


  • UK A Level AAB or equivalent; graduates: upper second class hounours (2:1) degree or equivalent,

  • IELTS 7.0.
