Mentors who have sat on Medical School interview panels will coach applicants in all of the key medicine interview skills necessary to gain entrance to UK university Medicine courses, encompassing both panel and Multiple Mini interview (MMI) techniques. The Course is divided into a morning seminar, and mock interviews.
Thank you so much for a great mock medical interview course last Thursday, for your feedback and for your additional questions. It was a great help to Caroline - she said that you were amazing and that your discussions aided on so many levels, including her self-confidence! My warm thanks for all of the time that you spent with her and for your follow-up.
A brilliant day. Tom's feedback from our interview was very specific to the questions he asked. The seminars were also extremely helpful, thank you!
I would like to thank you so much for all the support/help you have provided Alessandro since spring last year and in particular in preparation for the medical interviews. He really couldn't have done it without you. Your insight and tips were so valuable!
My Mentor had excellent knowledge of the application process, and provided great guidance/practice for interviews and with the personal statement. She had all information relevant for my chosen universities so the guidance was very tailored. I was very happy with the support I received.
Our Medical Mock Interview Course runs for 4 hours and is tailored individually. Students are asked prior to the Course to submit their personal statements, their university choices/offers and, if applicable, their Extended Essays, in order to target the interview practice to reflect what you are most likely to encounter on interview day. Morning seminars are capped at eight students per group to ensure that they are engaging and enjoyable, whilst the afternoon mock interviews are highly personalised.
The morning seminars focus on informing applicants of common and current/topical interview topics, followed by structured discussion to develop students' knowledge and understanding of these topics. The afternoon mock interviews will focus on assessing and developing the applicant’s ability to express their motivations for applying to study Medicine convincingly and succinctly, their knowledge of current events in the NHS, and their ability to debate ethical issues in a considerate but effective manner. The mock interview styles will be depend on what type of interviews you will be attending; if you are applying to both a panel and MMI university, we suggest doing one mock interview of each.

Students share personal statements, university offers, and long form writing like Extended Essays beforehand to ensure to target the interview practice to reflect what you are most likely to encounter on interview day.
MMI and Panel Mock Interviews
Whichever type of medical interview you'll encounter, our medical mentors will help you prepare. If you'll come across both as part of your interviews, you'll practice each at the Medical Mock Interview Course.
All of our mentors are Oxbridge & Russell Group Medical School students (in their fourth years and above) and doctors, with extensive experience in successfully guiding prospective applicants on how to stand out to admissions officers throughout all stages of the UK application process.
You can find out all the information you'd need to know about the course in our brochure.
