UK students guide to the MLA

The MLA will show, for the first time, that graduates from each UK medical school have demonstrated they can meet a common and consistent threshold for safe practice.

We understand that the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has put significant pressure on the UK’s health system, doctors, medical schools and students. Because of this, we’ve decided to develop the MLA to a revised timeframe.

As a result, UK medical students graduating in the academic year 2024-25 will need to pass the MLA before joining the medical register.

Who is this guide for?
UK medical students who will graduate in the academic year 2024-25, or later.
What will this help you with?
It will give you background information on the MLA. It's not intended to be a study guide.
