Why are Summer Schools important?

Summer Schools are fantastic for comprehensive UCAS application preparation and preparing students for university life! They are more successful than attending individual courses, because it ensures that you get comprehensive support resulting in university offers. For example, attending one UKCAT course might improve your score, but you may not get an offer because of the rest of your application. On average, 10-15% of UCAS applications to individual medical schools, result in acceptance (data taken from UCAS records). Other UCAS figures suggest that the chances of securing a place in at least one medical school could be as high at one third. Current figures from the Medical Schools’ Council represent a range of applicant to place ratios, from 6:1 in Cambridge (a 16.7% success rate) to 14.3:1 at BSMS (a 7% success rate). Last year over 80% of our medical summer school students had at least 1 offer.
We offer dedicated Dentistry and Veterinary Summer Schools, both of which are also highly competitive courses.

 

Who can attend?

The Medic Mentor Summer School is incredibly popular and fills up fast! So please register early to avoid disappointment. You can register for the summer school up to 3 years ahead of time, which also means that you can spread the cost with an interest-free monthly instalment plan. The earlier that you register, the lower your monthly repayments will be.

Summer School Options

The Sutton Trust offer free Summer Schools for students from widening access backgrounds. These are students from low-income backgrounds and the first generation in their families to attend university. They receive, on average, 10,000 applications per year and require applicants to meet a list of specific widening access eligibility criteria. Medic Mentor offer a small number of free places on our Summer School programme for disadvantaged students, which are partly funded by government bodies. If you would like to submit an application to us, our Engagement Officers will be able to let you know if you have secured a free place by May 2019. You must meet our Student Diversity Criteria as well as that of the government bodies that we have partnered with. You can find out more about Medic Mentor’s Student Diversity Fund if you click here.
For the majority of applicants who do not meet the widening access criteria, there are few options and they tend to be very expensive, such as the Oxbridge Royale Summer Schools which charge over £4000. Although the Medic Mentor Summer School is a serious commitment in terms of time and money, it is also the most affordable residential option and has a high success rate.

 

Medicine/Dentistry/Veterinary Summer School available to register for 2019, 2020 & 2021

Medic Mentor’s 5-day Residential Summer School Programme at Nottingham University is a unique opportunity for students to spend an entire week with dedicated healthcare professionals and university students, mentoring them through their UCAS applications. It takes a huge amount of pressure off and makes the application a more enjoyable experience for both the students and the parents! The final hurdle (and a common pitfall) for students is to ensure that all of their hard work (having done work experience, extra-curricular activities and academic achievements) is effectively communicated in their UCAS applications!

Medic Mentor’s summer school is completely unique, because:

1. it focuses entirely on the UCAS application itself
2. students receive 1-2-1 personal statement tutoring and leave with a final draft of their personal statements
3. students get unlimited PS reviews with their mentor after SS
4. entrance exam teaching (where applicable)
5. interview theory and mock interviews
6. 1-2-1 UCAS consultation to ensure that students select courses which are most likely to give them offers
7. follow-up mentoring throughout year 13.
8. a personal reference from one of our Mentors for your reference tutor.
9. Applicants also receive 7 books and access to UKCAT & BMAT question banks and online video courses for UKCAT, BMAT and Interviews.
