Summer School


The Target Medicine Summer School is a free, non-residential, week-long scheme for Year 11 students from London-based, non-selective state schools. There are 48 places available and the event takes place at UCL Medical School campus.

During the week students are mentored by two medical students and get the opportunity to meet patients, nurses and doctors, engage in simulated emergency clinical situations and visit one of the local hospitals. The summer school helps students find out what life is like as a medical student and as a doctor. It aims to be inspirational and to give students the confidence to pursue medicine as a career. It also puts students in touch with like-minded peers.

This year the Summer School takes place from Monday 6th - Friday 10th July 2015 at our Royal Free campus (Hampstead Heath).

To apply you must:

  • be a Year 11 student thinking of studying medicine at university
  • have predicted GCSE grade B and above in Maths, English
  • have parents/carers who have not been to university
  • be able to attend each day of the Summer School

Unfortunately we are not able to accept applications from selective/private school or international students.
