The medical school interview: it’s where you can make a lasting impression and also the deciding factor as to whether or not you begin your med school career. So make sure you’re ready to ace the interview with our medical school interview preparation course.
Our full day interview courses are facilitated by both experienced doctors and senior medical students, who have the benefit of recent medical school interview experience. With a maximum of 10 students per 2-3 facilitators, the small class size and interactive nature means our students undergo continuous practice and receive individual feedback.
We’ll break down the answers medical schools are looking for, and how you can make YOUR answers stand out. From practice questions to mock interviews, we’ll make sure you are fully prepared for your interview when the time comes.
98% of our students received an offer after their med school interview last year. Follow in their footsteps and get into the medical school you want.

Q | Can I change which university I want to focus on between signing up and the course date?
Of course! We understand that things change and you may not have all of your interview offers at the time of signing up. As long as you give us at least a couple of days notice, we can make sure that we have practice materials prepared for your chosen university. You’ll be provided with the contact details of the course lead after registration, just send them an email.
Q |Can I get practice questions from more than one university during my mock MMI circuit?
Most of the mock MMI will be stations which are relevant to all medical schools, allowing you to practice for multiple universities. With regard to university specific questions, on the course day, we only have time to ask questions from ONE university choice.
If you’d like to try more personalised questions from your chosen, or different universities, consider signing up for one of our MMI circuit half days. Here you can choose to have a MMI round all tailored to one university or you could have a question each from 10 different universities!
Q | Why do I need to send you my personal statement before the course?
Sending us your personal statement before the course is really important: it allows us to tailor your medical school interview practice specifically to you. Your course facilitators will read your personal statement before the day to get to know a little about you before you even arrive. If you get stuck, they may be able to remind you of things that you have done that you can use as an example of teamwork, communication skills or empathy, for example. We also use your personal statement to create individualised questions in your MMI round. Anything you have included on your personal statement you need to be prepared to talk about on interview day, so make sure you re-read them! If you need help with your personal statement, take a look at our Personal Statement Tutoring and Review services.
Q | I can’t get to your course venue. Can I attend via video call?
Due to the nature of the course, you are not able to video-in. One of the best things about our course is that the whole day is interactive, involving moving around and group work.
We’re hoping to expand the locations in which we provide courses, and will shortly be launching an online interview course. In the meantime, a good alternative is our one-to-one interview tutoring which we do offer via Skype. We are also able to teach through the same sessions as provided in the medical school interview preparation course.
