In a nutshell...
The Medefine Academy is an international award-winning mentoring programme for getting into UK Medical School. Students from all over the globe apply to join the Academy usually one or two years before the application deadline. Following application, we carefully select the best 50 students from all around the world to enter a focused online programme to accelerate their growth and to help them get a place at their desired medical school. Each student is assigned a personal mentor (doctor or medical student) who, for one year, will guide them using the best tips, tricks and strategies covering all the areas of the medical school application: work experience, personal statement, entry exams, interview. We are very proud to consider ourselves not only a mentoring programme, but a community whose aim is to boost students' growth both academically and on a personal level (i.e. developing confidence and independence).
For students who want to start preparation early, 2-3 years before applying to medical school, we have developed the Medefine Young Talent Academy. Based on the exact same principles as the Medefine Academy, students will be assigned a mentor who will help them build on the necessary strategies and skills, as well as achieving excellence with their personal statement, entry exams, work experience and interview preparation.
Our Medefine Academy and Young Talent Academy are defined by excellence, uniqueness and dedication. Therefore, every year we carefully select only 50 applicants to join our online programme from all around the world. Our current members come from a variety of backgrounds (Hong Kong, UAE, Russia, China, Japan, Qatar, Singapore and many others). We never had less than 46 out of 50 members getting into medical school, making us proud that our strategies reflect excellence and dedication.
Getting into UK medical school is not just about good grades - it never has been. Students who have the best chances at admission are those with a strategy to stand out. They understand what to focus their efforts on and how admissions decisions are actually made. Education in 21st century should be all about personalisation and understanding students’ strengths and weaknesses.
Our unparalleled track record of placing students into medical school such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London has been covered in interviews at BBC Radio, College of Medicine and many more. It’s because we base our mentoring on years of experience of seeing the strategies used by the top 10% applicants and gathering the best tips and tricks.
This is what we do best: Beyond mentoring, we get students into the mindset of the doctor they wish to become. Through extracurricular projects and activities, our academy members become more mature, independent, and most importantly confident. It simply is all about helping you achieve your absolute best.
At Medefine Academy, out of the thousands of requests from all over the world, we want to make sure that we are mentoring the most committed and motivated students giving them top quality advice until they get their dream medical school offer.
We never had less than 46 out of 50 members getting into medical school, making us proud that our strategies reflect excellence and dedication.
For these reasons, each year we only select 50 students from all
over the world to join the Academy.
