Not all universities made the grade

There were far more applications from universities for Medical School spaces than were announced – many existing universities missed out on additional spaces and others missed out on establishing a Medical School at all.

One University has been very open in its disappointment of the recent new medical school spaces announcement. Which university you ask? None other than the University of Bradford

Commiserations guys – we know that the application process took a lot of work and there will be some seriously disappointed people, but we are sure the future’s bright for you in other areas! ūüôā
