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 on the sessions listed on the following document - Target Medicine Mentoring Scheme Sessions and Events
