COVID-19 (Coronavirus): Advice and information

We are monitoring and following all advice from Public Health England, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and the World Health Organisation and we are reviewing all guidance daily.

Both our parent universities are publishing regular updates and information for staff, students and applicants.  As The University of Kent is handling the Admissions process please read the information they have posted in regards to supporting applicants.

KMMS Specific FAQs – 2021 entry


General statement about 2021 entry

For the 2021 entry cycle, this is proceeding normally at this time. We have published our Entry Requirements 2021 on our website and welcome applications from any person who meets these requirements, including those who have previously been unsuccessful in their KMMS application.

Do international applicants have to pass their English language requirements before application for 2021 entry?

This was a requirement for 2020 entry, but KMMS will reconsider this rule for 2021 entry due to cancellation of exams over the summer of 2020. If the English language tests are re-instated in reasonable time before the UCAS deadline, this requirement will stand; it may be relaxed if there is no chance to sit the tests before the UCAS deadline.

What is the attitude of KMMS to work experience, as many opportunities for work experience have been lost during the Covid restrictions in 2020?

We consider work experience to be valuable for medical school applicants, and recognise that many applicants have already been active in volunteering and community work before the Covid outbreak. KMMS notes that many formal NHS and care sector placements for intending medical students have been cancelled during 2020 and will make suitable allowances.

If you have a question for us please email and we will try to address your enquiry as soon as possible.

How do I get a copy of the KMMS prospectus?

KMMS Specific FAQs – Current Students

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the proportion of online activity to face to face teaching has changed in line with the positions adopted by both the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University. Similarly, face to face teaching has been adapted in line with infection control guidelines to reduce the risk of transmission, including social distancing measures.

Whilst this has changed the format of the overall timetable and individual learning events, we are confident that you will have the teaching and learning experience you need to prepare you for your future career.

The programme and its delivery will continue to need to respond to statements and guidance issued by the government, both universities, placement providers and other key stakeholders.

Please ensure you keep yourself up to date regarding KMMS’s response to this by checking the homepage of the Student Portal. Should you have any concerns or queries about the programme and how any changes affect you, please e-mail
