Medical School Interview Courses - Overview:
Our full-day interview courses were designed by doctors and are facilitated by both experienced medical doctors and senior medical students, who have the benefit of recent medical school interview experience. Additionally, 8 of our facilitators have sat or are currently on interview panels at medical schools around the UK.
With a maximum of 9 to 12 students per 3 to 4 facilitators, the small group size and interactive nature mean our students get lots of opportunities to practice delivering answers and receive individual feedback.
Using our question bank we’ll break down the questions for medical schools in the UK, and how you can make your answers stand out for all interview formats. From practice questions panel style to mock interviews in a realistic MMI circuit, we’ll make sure you are fully prepared for your medical school interview when the time comes.
What to expect at our Medical School Interview Courses:
In the full-day medical school interview course, we coach you on how to approach all types of interview questions and MMI stations. The course is not lecture based but is designed to offer a full-day practice where you are taught interview techniques, strategies, and how to structure your answers. Therefore, it gives you a real interview experience and you improve your abilities throughout the day.
Topics covered during the course
Special MMI Stations
For each topic, we will teach you how to approach each question type and how to apply the knowledge you have to an interview question and MMI scenario. So at the end of the day, you'll know how to approach each type of question really well, with different structures in mind and you will have practised many questions throughout the day and got feedback.
Before your course, we will provide online videos where you can view all of the teaching content before and after the course.

The course includes a short MMI circuit of 6 stations during the afternoon which we will video record (your practice and the feedback you receive). You can take home the video recording, with the marking schemes.
