Deciding on a career in medicine can be a big decision. If you can’t join a 1 or 2-week course with us, then our 1-day work experience days are designed to help students aged 14+ decide if a career in medicine is for them and to give them some meaningful work experience to use on their UCAS personal statements and in medical school interviews.
Our one day courses take place in London in NHS hospitals or medical schools and are designed for students in years 10-13 to get a real understanding of what a successful med school applicant looks like, introduce you to the career and gain some much sought after work experience to use in your applications.
All of these courses are non residential, so students simply meet our staff and tutors at the venue and are leave for home at the end of the day.
