Mentoring Scheme


The Target Medicine Mentoring Scheme matches teams of volunteer UCL medical students with sixth form students from London-based, non-selective state schools who want to study medicine. It aims to give AS/A2 students a better understanding of what is needed to be a successful applicant to medical school and provides structured support and guidance to them during the application process.

The scheme takes place on Wednesday evenings over a calendar year and students work with their mentors in various sessions and events at the UCL Bloomsbury campus.

Please note: Applications for the 2016 Mentoring Scheme have now closed and we are unable to consider any late applications.

Application Process

To apply you must:

  • be a year 12 student who wants to study medicine
  • attend a non-selective state school with a London postcode (E, EC, N, NW, SW, SE, W, EC), or a non-selective state school in the boroughs of Brent, Barnet, Enfield or Waltham Forest.
  • have achieved GCSE grade B or above in English Language and Maths
  • unfortunately we are not able to accept applications from selective/private school or international students.

If the Mentoring Scheme is over-subscribed applications from students who attend UCL Target Schools and non-selective state schools in Camden, Islington, Haringey, Hackney and Westminster will be given priority.
