I applied for the k+ which is run by kcl so you might want to try that their are other programmes but they arent with unnis send me a private message if you want links to those
Sorry if I'm late but there's a Bristol summer school (if you fall under certain criteria) which would give you a guaranteed interview.

You can also check out in2medschool which offers free mentoring.

Hope that helps.
Hello 🙂 you should check out In2MedSchool's conference and events, mentorship programs, work experience and more!
I would also look at the websites of the med schools in your area. They may have more local schemes.

The sutton Trust might be worth looking at.
If you meet the criteria there is a Southampton Easter virtual experience course. Limited number and quite competitive. Closes on 4th March.
