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
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 GCSE grades which meet the requirement for at least one UK Medical School
If you meet the above criteria, please apply via the website http://tmms2014.eventbrite.co.uk/.
Unfortunately we are not able to accept applications from private school or international students.
If you are not eligible for our scheme but would like more information on becoming a medical student, visit the NHS Medical Careers website: www.medicalcareers.nhs.uk/considering_medicine/widening_participation.aspx.
Alternatively you can sign up to one of our Outreach events via www.ucl.ac.uk/target-medicine/outreac.
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.
