Upcoming Events

Helping students get into medical school since 2006

In light of current situations we want to continue staying connected with you, and provide you with support and a place to share any concerns about the medical school admissions process for 2020.

We hold regular, free events where you can learn about the admissions process and get expert guidance. As well as overviews and taster prep sessions for the UCAT & BMAT, each free event will also cover one of the topics below:

  • Getting into medical school
  • Personal statement tips
  • Work experience
  • Interview preparation

The UCAT & BMAT overview will cover the timing scoring and structure of the tests, plus sample questions with time-saving strategies for all test-sections. These sessions will be led by an experienced teacher who has scored in the top 10% of the test.

The featured topic will be covered by a guest speaker, who will share their expertise and guidance in this area.

Our seminar in October will focus exclusively on interview preparation. The free event will be a publicly available Future Doctor Channel session from the online study centre of our Kaplan course: Most Common Interview Mistakes.

Our online events are very interactive, and opportunities to ask questions will be provided!
