Refund Policy



National Healthcare Weekend course tickets can be refunded in full if we receive the cancellation request in writing at least 2 weeks before the event start date. Any cancellations which occur within the 2 weeks prior to the event will not be refunded. You must notify us of your cancellation by emailing

Phone calls and leaving phone messages or texts does not confirm a cancellation. This must be received in writing only, as explained above.

If we are unable to provide a direct refund, we will do our best to switch you to another event or offer you books to equate to the amount that you have spent. We do not want students to miss out on valuable information. Please try to notify us in advance if you are unable to attend. In the unlikely event of unpredictable weather conditions, or low numbers of attendees, and the event has been cancelled, all tickets will be refunded in full. However, we cannot refund any travel expenses incurred due to unpredictable factors beyond our control, resulting in the cancellation of an event.

Summer School deposits are non-refundable beyond the 14 day cooling off period when registering. Following this, students must notify us of their wish to cancel at least 6 months prior to their start date. Cancellations that fall within the 6 month period of their start date cannot be refunded. Expenses will have already been used to pay for food and accommodation as well as provisions including books and teaching. It will also be too late for us to offer the place to another student.


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. There is no deadline for the application, but as soon as we receive a sufficient number of high quality applications to fulfil the places at your school, applications for students at your school will close.  The online application form can be found at the link below.
