Making an application to study Medicine can be daunting, however, our expert tutors have designed a programme to demystify the process and explain exactly what an Admissions Tutor is looking for.
Our staff have years of experience in helping students access the UK’s top Medical Schools and are all exclusively from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. As well as our expert Subject Tutors, we also have an ex-Oxford University Admissions Tutor on our team who will run a workshop with students to give insider guidance on how best to approach an application.
We cover all aspects of the application process in detail, through a range of interactive seminars and discussions. We consider the pre-application preparation required, from writing a personal statement to making the right choice when it comes to colleges and universities. Students will also spend time learning about the post-application process, including the Admission Test (both the BMAT and UCAT) and the interviews.

5+ hours of live Medicine seminars, led by our expert tutors
5+ additional hours of live interactive teaching
4+ hours of directed learning each day

Included in our course fees are a range of sessions designed to help students prepare for their application to study Medicine at a top UK University. The entire admissions process is covered, from writing Personal Statements to strategies for approaching Admissions Tests and preparing for interviews.
Students who are applying this year may opt for additional personalised specialist support. These optional extras would being during the Summer School, and continue afterwards, to help students prepare for their upcoming application.

Personal Statement Consultation
The Personal Statement is a key part of any university application and a student’s opportunity to demonstrate their passion for their subject. We understand a Personal Statement is a long-term project and we have designed a 3-hour package which guides and supports students through the writing process.
During the Summer School, students will have an initial 1-hour consultation with a Subject Specialist to set out a plan on how to develop and strengthen their Personal Statement over the coming months. Students will also receive advice and guidance from an ex-Oxford University Admissions Officer—an expert in competitive university admissions.
Students will meet twice more with both the Subject Specialist and the Personal Statements Expert before the UCAS deadline, once they have had a chance to develop and improve their Personal Statement. This ensures that by the time our students submit their application, they are confident they have presented themselves as strongly as possible.
We have designed and produced both a BMAT and a UCAT paper, and students may purchase a test package alongside the Summer School at a reduced rate. The test paper exactly replicates the style of the original paper, and the package comes complete with a mark scheme, full solutions and a question-by-question video walk-through. These tests cannot be found elsewhere online and are entirely unique, therefore fully replicating the Admissions Test experience for the student.
Students can also add a Mock Interview to their Summer School course. Interviews are one of the most important parts of an application and for students making an application in 2021, a baseline interview in the summer is an excellent way to prepare. A baseline interview allows students to work on their development points throughout the autumn and perhaps undertake additional Mock Interviews closer to the time to hone their skills.
Our Mock Interviews are conducted by our specialist tutors with Oxford and Cambridge interview experience. They last 45 minutes: 30 minutes for the interview, followed by 15 minutes of verbal feedback, discussing how the interview went and points for improvement. Students will also receive a detailed written report, which explains the content of the interview, assesses the student’s critical thinking and analytic skills, gives notes on their interview style and explains how they can improve next time.
