The scheme gives the potential for students to receive an alternative offer at Queen Mary University of London, worth up to two A Level grades or equivalent.

Two week-long, non-residential taster weeks for students who are interested in studying Medicine or Dentistry at university and wish to make an informed decision, prepare a successful application and understand what these degree subjects and careers involve. Students should only apply if they can attend 100% of the week from 9am – 4:30pm daily.
All the staff, lecturers and ambassadors were so helpful and made sure to answer questions in detail. I made so many new friends, all of the sessions were useful and relevant. I like that the group was small. The mock interviews were extremely useful.

- Roughly 50% sessions focused on Medicine, 25% on Dentistry and 25% on sessions applicable to all
