Over 18 years, we have supported more than 65,000 students in over 120 countries, and annually work closely with a global network of over 400 schools. During that time we have helped hundreds of applicants win places in medical school, giving them the benefit of our research and expertise every step of the way. 50% of Oxbridge applicants on our Medical Application Programme received a place to study Medicine, compared to the average of 15.2% for all applicants to Oxbridge Medicine.
Every year we conduct extensive research into the application process for Medicine and medical sciences such as Veterinary Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy. We train our tutors to reflect this in their tuition, giving our students the most accurate picture of the application process possible, from personal statement drafting to interview practice. And because our work is informed by doctors, former medical Admissions Tutors, and lay members of admissions panels to top UK universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, UCL and Imperial, we are apprised of any changes in what medical schools want to see from new applicants.
We also keep up-to-date on the assessments and tests that each medical candidate will face, such as the BMAT and UKCAT, and their importance for each medical school admissions decision. This means we are in the best position to prepare you for the tests you will sit and give you the best chance to maximise your score.
Since 1999, we have built a proven track record of increasing the success rates of our applicants. 50% of Medicine applicants to Oxford and Cambridge on our Medical Application Programme received a place, compared to the average of 15.2% for all applicants.
Our work is informed by doctors, former medical admission tutors, and lay members of admissions panels to top UK universities including Oxford, Cambridge, UCL and Imperial College London.
Dukes Tutors undergo one of the most rigorous vetting processes in the UK, not only being required to prove evidence of their academic success but also show aptitude for teaching. 85% of our tutors were educated at Oxbridge.
We are the only consultancy that can provide an end-to-end programme of tailored support at every stage of the medical application.
Our admissions test papers are written by Medicine graduates and have been developed using data analysis and the most up-to-date information. This allows the most accurate mock interview and test preparation.
We have central London offices, with professional educators available to provide personal support over the phone or via email from 9 – 5.30pm (GMT) Monday-Friday.
Inspired by global medical research conferences, Young Person’s Medical Conference brings a vision of the future of Medicine to pre-university students. Students aiming to apply for Medicine at university will eventually qualify into a very different world from the one we see today. Over a series of talks from medical specialists, leaders in relevant technology, and practitioners, schoolleavers will receive a glimpse of the future of Medicine – the medical world to which they will, one day, perhaps contribute. Students move from the global scale to the immersive reality of medical life, over a number of theatrical workshops.
Medicine is a highly competitive course, with some universities receiving 10 applicants for every place.
