Back by popular demand, our award-winning talk is back. This year, we have planned something special, bringing you high quality resources, top healthcare leaders in the UK, and the latest tips, tricks and hacks to help you achieve your dream of studying medicine in the UK. 

The harsh reality is there are 50,000+ applicants each year, and only approximately 8,000 places available at medical school within the UK. Places are limited and truth is, only the top applicants will get in. But what do successful applications have in common? How do you stand out from the crowd? How do you absolutely ace your personal statement, master entrance exams, shine bright in your interview, and obtain that desired medical school offer.


During this short talk, students, parents, and teachers will have the opportunity to navigate the theory required for applying, and a chance to put this into practice during a few hands-on activities. This unique talk is being delivered by the authors of the international best-selling book 'Unofficial Guide to Getting into Medical School' available on Amazon and in shops throughout the world including Waterstons, WHSmith, Blackwells and several others.
