Medic Mentor Summer Schools

Medic Mentor’s 5-day Summer School Programme is a unique opportunity for students to spend an entire week with doctors and medical students perfecting their UCAS applications. By the end of the week, students will gain an in-depth understanding of how to structure well-written, high quality personal statements. They will also learn background knowledge (“medical wider reading”) and how to concisely and effectively communicate their achievements at interviews. Students are also given ultimate UKCAT and BMAT teaching, with 300 page workbooks and 2 online questions banks to best prepare them for these highly important entrance exams. This ensures that the hard work of our Medic Mentor students is successfully translated into their UCAS applications, giving them the best chance of securing a place at medical school.

We offer both a residential and a non-residential summer school programme. The residential summer school programme is held at the University of Nottingham and comes with a lot of additional support. However, we also offer a non-residential lecture based summer school programme in Central London and Stirling (in Scotland).

The Summer School is for year 12/S5 students who are applying in October 2017.  It is also extremely useful for gap year or re-applying year 13 students, who need to work on their applications. Current year 11 or S4 students should look to register for Summer School 2018 now, because spaces are extremely limited and will fill up fast!
