    Fantastic resource

    As a careers adviser I have used the MSAG Med School guide with aspects such as what individual universities are look for in personal statements, personal views from students in their med schools. More recently I used the guide to give information to a student who has been rejected from her med school choices around ratios of applicants to students; something she in particular wanted to look into. The guide is easy to use and so much quicker as a reference point than using online tools to check entry requirements and specifics about the content of a degree programme. I would recommend this guide to both advisers, teachers and students equally.

    I have found this book to be an invaluable resource for students. The detailed information about individual Medical Schools has been particularly useful in enabling them to identify which Medical Schools to research /visit further.
