Get into Dental School: The Medic Mentor Summer School
The Medic Mentor Summer School is the single most important resource for applicants getting into dental school because it addresses the most important components of the entire application process for medicine. The Medic Mentor Summer Schools are a 6-day residential programme at the University of Stirling (Scotland) and East London Dockland (London), with a success rate of getting over 80% of students into dental school. It is unique because it is the only comprehensive UCAS application-focused course, that tackles every element of the UCAS application, with the highest success rate. It is ideal for motivated students, who are aiming for top grades and have some work experience or extra-curricular activities that they can base their application on. We are also experts on alternative routes into dentistry and have assisted students in obtaining places on access, foundation and transfer courses where grades have been a limiting factor.

Monday: Dental Wider-ReadingYou will get to attend lectures and small group workshops covering medical ethics, NHS structure, clinical governance, important discoveries and figures in dentistry and surgery, current affairs and significant dental organisations such as the BDA, GDC etc. This is vitally important because you will be tested on these subjects at interview and you will need to include this information in your personal statement.
Tuesday: Personal Statement TutoringYou will receive 1-2-1 tutoring from several doctors, dentists and dental students to help you write your personal statement to get into dental school. This ensures that you include the most relevant experiences and achievements to produce the best personal statement that you can. Most students leave the summer school with a finished personal statement. You can also have as many reviews as you need following the summer school.
Wednesday: Personal Statement TutoringThe final day of personal statement tutoring involves going through multiple edits to get the personal statement into the 4000 character limit. This is often the most challenging part because you will need to decide what to keep and what to cut out. This is where our Mentors become invaluable, because they can ensure that you retain the most relevant experiences that admissions tutors will be looking for and keep it medically relevant.
Thursday: UCAT TeachingA full day of teaching on the UCAT entrance exam by the leading provider of UCAT resources in the UK. Students will also be provided with online question banks, access to follow up and mentoring to support their revision over the summer holidays. Students who register early can access these banks prior to the Summer School.
Friday: BMAT/InterviewThis is an optional day spent on the BMAT entrance exam for candidates who have decided to take it. Students will receive teaching from the leading provider of BMAT resources and BMAT question banks. Those who are not planning to sit the BMAT can opt for additional interview preparation in the form of lectures, workshops and mock interviews.
Saturday: Interviews & UCAS ConsultationsOn Saturday morning, students receive a lecture on interview theory and techniques, followed by mock MMI (multiple mini-interviews) and panel interviews. All students receive personal feedback and mark schemes to take home. All students can access skype interview practice from Mentors following the summer school as often as needed to get you into dental school.
