Notes on data scope
As a private medical school (not subject to FOI regulations), Buckingham has not responded to requests for information on competition ratios.
As explained in our notes on 'Home' classifications, UK medical schools counted EU applicants within the 'Home' category in the 2019-20 and previous admissions cycles. When making comparisons with later data sets, keep in mind that UK medical schools after Brexit start counting EU applicants within 'International' category.
Due to ongoing impact of Covid-19 since March 2020, UK medical schools have not yet released competition ratio data for this period. Applicants should keep in mind that coronavirus-related lockdowns and other restrictions affected the entire UK education sector, so competition ratios were most likely distorted during and following the 2020-21 admissions cycle. MedSchoolGenie will update here when further competition data becomes available.
