It gives you real interview experience and helps you improve your abilities throughout the day.
What to expect
Small class sizes: With a maximum of 12 students per class and 2 facilitators, the small group size and interactive nature mean our students get opportunities to practice all day delivering answers and receive individual feedback.
- Up-to-date information: The medical school interview course is updated each year, and thus the most up-to-date hot topics in healthcare that are relevant to your medical school interview will also be covered.
- All interview types: Each course is tailored to the group of 12 students of the day. We start by covering the marking schemes and question types at the medical school the students on that day are applying to and then delve into structure and practice for the rest of the day.
- MMI preparation: For the 2019/2020 season, we have improved our course structure so each student who attends can now practice a minimum of between 6 to 8 MMI stations during the course + a group task. During their timed practice, they will be videoed and be able to take the recording home of their practice and feedback, along with the marking schemes.
- theMSAG Workbook: You are also provided with theMSAG workbook on the day of your course which includes how to approach the most common interview questions.
Included access to our Award-Winning Online Interview Course and NHS Hot Topics Series 1 (RRP £25): Before the course, you will be provided access to our award-winning online interview course that features videos to help you prepare for answering questions on the course day.

Our courses can be quite oversubscribed, as such we try to make additional courses available in the same location. If there is an additional course, you’ll see it labelled as “Room 2” or “Room 3”. Each room is taught the same material and will have the same number of facilitators.
