What are the group sizes?

There are 20 students in 1 class, and students are put into smaller groups of 4-5 students per mentor. There will also be additional mentors looking after the students as a whole and an on site 24 hour resident social worker and counsellor, to provide additional pastoral support for students, when needed. Students are supervised throughout and will be staying in university halls of accommodation. Students will not be conducting activities off campus at any point during the Summer School Programme.


Students will receive 7 textbooks and access to 2 online question banks for UKCAT and BMAT. This is to ensure that students are comprehensively supported with educational resources for their application.

What is the Medical Leadership Programme?

The School Ambassador Programme is open to secondary school students in all years. It is the only national medical leadership programme for aspiring doctors, dentists and vets.  The programme provides students with 3 additional teaching days (1 Sunday per term) to help students develop important transferable skills and knowledge that will best prepare them for their future careers.  It also gives students extra opportunities to work with a variety of doctors, vets and dentists throughout the year.  This ensures that we can provide you with ongoing face-to-face mentoring to help you start thinking and acting like medical students in time for your interviews in Year 13 and S6.


Applying for Funded Places

There are 2 ways to enter the Medical Leadership Programme.  You can apply for a funded place as a School Ambassador, or enrol onto the Medic Mentor Residential Summer School for the maximum level of support.

Medic Mentor provide 6 funded places per school (3 for year 10-12/S3-S5 and 3 for year 13/S6).  These School Ambassador positions are awarded based on a competitive application from individual students.
