Events

 

We sincerely hope that you and your families are healthy, safe and well. In the face of this crisis, we will be using online platforms to keep you informed and on track for your medical career. We have one-to-one tutoring and will be working hard to create new resources for you. Stay tuned. 

As such, our planned events will now be in the form of online livestreams. We will inform you closer to the event of the logistics; you will be pleased to know that these online livestreams will be free and that all tickets booked for the physical events will carry over to the livestream.

The Student Factor

​As medical students that were in your position not long  ago, we have the benefit of hindsight. Through attending these events, you will be able to learn from our combined: experiences, knowledge and insight into medicine.

 

Although we can't go back in time and tweak our actions, you can learn from our experiences so that you capitalise on what worked for us. This will lead to you to developing the habits, mindset and network to maximise your chances of getting into your chosen medical schools.

Our Community Events

We don't think of the application process as starting when you send your UCAS application in early Year 13. You can take steps earlier on in order to invest in your future. We believe in taking every step of the application process with precision and purpose. We believe pro-activity is the key to maximising your chances of getting into medicine. 

In addition, these events will allow you to network with like-minded individuals from your area as well as chance to hear from multiple medical schools from various universities throughout the country. Each of our mentors has their own unique journey to learn from. 

The beauty of having group seminars is that other students may ask questions that you may have not of thought. Smaller groups also allow you to ask questions more freely especially asking a question in front of strangers may seem intimidating at first. 

Both students and parents can attend the seminars. It can be a fantastic way for parents to meet other parents of students that also want to study medicine.
