The Medic Mentor Veterinary Summer School

 

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 Vets and Veterinary 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 includes:

1. a guided tour of the teaching facilities at Nottingham Vet School, by the admissions team.

2. students receive 1-2-1 personal statement tutoring and leave with a final draft of their personal statements

3. students get unlimited personal statement reviews with their mentor after the Summer School

4. you have the chance to hear from representatives and veterinary students from all of the UK Vet Schools in one place!

5. you will learn about interview theory and undertake mock interviews

6. you will have access to a 1-2-1 UCAS consultation with your Vet Mentor, to ensure that you select the right vet schools for you and increase your chances of being made an offer.

7. you will receive follow-up mentoring after the Summer School

8. you will be given a reference letter from the Lead Mentor for your reference teachers, to support your application.

    Summer School 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.

    How Can I Register? Please note that the Summer School Tuition Fees are increasing by £250 on Monday the 3rd of September 2018. Those that register before this date will benefit from the original tuition fee rate.

    You can secure your place with a deposit and then spread the remaining tuition fee in interest-free monthly installments, or make a one-off tuition fee payment for the whole amount. The deposit is non-refundable and is used to cover the costs of your accommodation. Alternatively, you can register by paying the tuition fees in full (£2500 inc VAT) in one payment, but this includes the non-refundable deposit.
