About the Course
Intensive and comprehensive, our course covers everything you need to know to get into medical school.

Is this course for me?
Our aim is to help the candidates maximise their chance of success by guiding them through each step of the application process and using our wealth of combined experience and knowledge to offer specific personal guidance.
Our main goal is to enable you to have a strong application to help you get to the interview stage, and thereafter have the confidence in yourself, answering questions honestly, and in a way that addresses what the interviewers are looking for.
We also offer specific guidance for international, graduate, and gap year applicants, well as university specific preparation.
What do we teach?
How to give the best performance at interviews through being able to recognise the intention behind each question, which category it falls into, and knowing which structures to use to shape your answer into an outstanding one.
The Interview Day
How to plan for the day. Useful and practical tips to ensure the best start to your interview day, as well as how to succeed during the interview.
General Interview Questions
It is impractical to attempt to cover every iteration of every interview question you could face; we have simplified your preparation into key categories of questions, with effective and proven methods for dealing with each one.
The purpose of this is to help you form the best version of your answers, and give them to the interviewers.
Specific MMI and Panel interview sessions
- Specific guidance for each type of station, including role play techniques in common scenarios, a structured approach to data analysis, how to stand out in group tasks, and how to approach more obscure/unexpected stations
- Individual practise and feedback opportunities (in this section and throughout the course)
- University specific interview guidance
- Guidance and practise for personal statement based questions
How to best approach difficult ethical questions. They can be daunting to many candidates as they commonly do not have clear or correct answers. Confident answers to ethical questions stem from knowledge about the different approaches to ethics, considering multiple viewpoints, and having a justifying your opinions. We provide examples and structure to your approach, and give you the necessary tools (such as knowledge of the law or healthcare protocols) to defend your answers.

Why choose us?
Here's why we think you should be choosing us.
Our tutors are experienced in preparing candidates for success at interviews and are interviewers themselves. This gives them a clear understanding of what is required, and allows all the important topics and techniques to be condensed into this one day course.
Our course is uniquely taught through the combined focus of senior medical professionals with interviewing experience and adept medical students. This means candidates receive the clearest insight from both sides of the table, and effective guidance proven to succeed.
We provide individualised guidance on personal statements, work experiences, and application criteria. This reflects how our interview preparation is personalised to individual circumstances and allows candidates to prepare for questions they may specifically face.
In addition to the day of teaching, we also provide each attendee with a copy of our book, the SARP Medical Entrance Guide, by Oxford Medical (RRP £24.99). This provides useful tools to aide in preparation during the course all the way through to the interview day itself.
Plenty of other amazing features:
- Consideration of extracurricular and supercurricular activities, and how they are fundamental to a successfully interview performance
- Development of the mental and physical performance
- Live and video demonstrations of average vs outstanding answers
- Cost effective: low numbers of candidates with multiple tutors
- Lunch provided + tea/coffee service
The number of tutors will depend upon the total number of delegates to enable interactive learning throughout the day and provide enough opportunities for you to practice your interview technique, ask questions, develop your ideas and get a constructive feedback for further development.
