Immigration guide for doctors and medical students

Immigration law is complex and changes frequently which means that whatever your status, you need to keep up to date.

If you are on a visa, the immigration rules affect how you can progress through your training and which jobs you can apply for.

Even if you are not on a visa and are settled in the UK, the immigration rules affect whether you can bring your family to join you.
If you are from the EEA, rules about English language testing to register with the GMC may apply to you.

We have updated our guidance to reflect recent changes to immigration requirements.
Make sure you understand the rules
