We are looking forward to you all joining us at the Barts Cancer Institute in September 2021

We know that these are uncertain times, but we are committed to delivering you a fantastic education experience. So no matter if you come in person, are studying remotely or require a mixture of both, don't worry, we are here to fully support you.

Below you'll find information and resources about joining us.


31 July

Application Deadline

Please aim to submit your application by this deadline.



Enrolment will be completed online this year, so you won't have to attend campus in order to become fully enrolled. Students holding an unconditional offer, which has been firmly accepted will be invited to enrol at the beginning of September.

Week commencing 20 September


Induction will take place remotely with some onsite sessions as well.

27 September

Semester One Start

Teaching will start week commencing 27th September.

Teaching will be delivered by a combination of in-person teaching (recorded for distance learners), an online series of lecture recordings, and live online sessions with interactive question and answer sessions where you can collaborate with your peers and lecturers.

The precise combination will depend on social distancing rules required by government and the University at the time; however, we will endeavour to provide in-person teaching wherever possible. These activities will be supplemented by journal club meetings, and other designated events both on and off campus.

Frequently asked questions

YES - you can still apply, the initial application deadline is 31st July.
