About our Medicine Summer School

Our Medicine Summer School is designed to give Year 12 students an insight into life studying to become a doctor, the science behind medicine and disease, and support you in applying to study Medicine at University.

This year, our Medicine Summer School is a free, one night residential at the University of Leeds, taking place on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th July 2022.

Participants will take part in subject masterclasses, hear from our students about their experiences studying medicine, and learn more about the process of applying to Medical School.
