National Weekend is the first step on your healthcare journey. It is the largest and most comprehensive healthcare careers event in the UK, with 36 conferences taking place in 6 locations involving over 800 healthcare professionals and degree student volunteers and lecturers. We teach roughly 2000 students, parents and teachers at each National Weekend from nearly 1000 secondary schools across the UK. National Weekend gives you the option of attending a career specific conference and UCAS lecture at a venue near you. You can choose from medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, psychology, biomedicine, nursing & midwifery or pharmacy.
Proceeds raised from these events are reinvested back into educational initiatives that support healthcare students at university, such as Medic Mentor scholarships - which you will be able to apply for as soon as you become an offer holder in year 13 or S6. Students from low-income backgrounds and their parents can also attend for free if you meet the criteria of our student diversity fund.
