The Edge in Studying Medicine
Students need more than outstanding grades at A-Level to get into Medical School. Studying medicine is a demanding degree which requires academic excellence, the ability to empathise, and excellent written and verbal communication skills, in addition to an overarching ambition and drive to complete the course.
Students must demonstrate that they have completed relevant work experience in the caring profession. We advise students on how best to apply to NHS organisations, including GP and veterinary practices.
Our programme encourages students to work voluntarily, particularly in school nurseries, care homes and charity shops. These experiences are essential in giving our students the edge when applying to study medicine and help build the resilience needed for such an emotionally challenging career.
