Coronavirus (COVID-19) – making your application

Use your GMC Online account to make an application and send your evidence – we can’t accept applications or evidence by post at the moment because our offices are closed. 

Submit your application online

Once you've read and understood this guide, you're ready to apply through GMC Online.

Your GMC Online account

If you already have a GMC Online account, you can log in and apply by choosing 'My Registration' then 'My Applications'.

If you have a GMC reference number, but have never logged into your online account, you'll need to activate your GMC Online account.

If you don’t have a GMC reference number, then you need to set up an account. To request a GMC reference number and for further advice on setting up an account, please contact us

Timeframes for submitting your application online

You have twelve months to submit your application after you’ve started it in GMC online. This is because we recommend that you use your online application as an electronic portfolio, uploading evidence as you gather it.

You’ll need to ensure you keep updating parts of your application over the twelve month period; otherwise the application will automatically expire.
