To support you to prepare answers relating to your chosen medical school, this section provides specific information relating to individual medical schools, including:

  • Teaching Overview – highlighting the teaching methods used, the planned clinical contact and if the medical school offers dissection and/or prosection. 
  • Teaching Hospitals / Clinical Partnerships – outlining any teaching hospitals that that medical school lists as using / partnering with.   
  • Extracurricular / Additional Opportunities – including opportunities for Student Selected Components (SSCs), elective projects and intercalated degrees. 
  • Selling Points – any additional selling points of the medical school, which may be useful when discussing your reasons for wanting to study there, including any additional entry routes to medicine that they offer, such as graduate entry or a foundation year. 
  • Interview Information – including the type of interview used and any additional information about the format of the interview or the marking criteria used. 

All information provided is correct for the academic year 2020/2021 and has been sourced from the individual medical schools’ websites, all of which are linked in the relevant sections, should you wish to research them further.

COVID-19 Information

Due to the ongoing efforts to reduce contact during the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s the possibility that any interview you’re offered may be conducted differently during this time, particularly in relation to whether you’re invited to the medical school to interview in person and the scale of any MMI interviews. For any medical school which has confirmed that their interviews will be conducted online for entry for the academic year 2021/2022 this is highlighted within their individual interview section. The Medical Schools Council has also produced ‘Guidance for candidates taking online interviews’, which you may find useful.
