Full registration for European doctors who graduated in an EEA country or Switzerland

Brexit and your application

On the 31 December 2020, the Brexit transition period will end. This follows the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union in January 2020. This means that we’ll need to close your application if you have started it on GMC Online but not submitted it by 11pm on 31 December 2020. If you intend to submit an application, you should consider doing so before this time. If you have submitted an application before the deadline, we’ll process it in the usual way.
