Getting Into Medicine and Dentistry Course

Getting Into Medicine and Dentistry Course on Saturday the 28th of April.  We are giving pupils from our partner schools a special discount to attend.  For just £10 they will get access to a full-day course that normally retails at £135.

This month’s course at Imperial College in London was very well received by the 85 students who attended, many of which have registered for our other, more intensive courses (please see ).  These are focussed on giving students the edge in the different aspects of the application process depending on which medical or dental school they are applying for.  Discount codes for these courses will be given to students that attend on Saturday, so that they can save money on future courses with us. They also get access to our Facebook study group where they get daily updates on Hot Topics for interview, personal statement writing tips etc.  They can also ask any questions they like of our tutors who are current medical students at some of the top universities in the country, such as Oxford.

This Saturday the course is taking place at:

The Usher Suite

Novotel Edinburgh Centre

81 Lauriston Place



Booking is via Eventbrite at:
