Acceptable overseas qualifications
If your primary medical qualification is from outside the UK or EEA, we need to make sure it’s acceptable in the UK.
As part of your application, you'll need to send us a copy of your qualification.
There are some qualifications we already know aren't accepted in the UK, or are only accepted in some cases. We list them in this guide.
You should check whether your qualification is acceptable before you start an application with us.
From 11 June 2018, once your primary medical qualification meets our acceptability criteria, you'll need to have it independently verified before we can grant your registration with a licence to practise. If you intend to apply after this date, read about what this will mean for you.
