Our Expertise

Over the last 20 years, Dukes Medical Applications has helped hundreds of medical applicants win places on their chosen course. Applicants for Medicine need expert advice from an early stage to be sure they are focusing their energies on the right topics and concerns. They also need guidance from someone who has been through the process successfully and can advise them on the many points of detail in their application, what to expect, and what Admissions Tutors are looking for.

Our expert admissions consultants are available throughout the week.

Three elements of expertise


Our People

The first component of our expertise is our first-hand knowledge of the application process. Our in-house Medical Admissions Consultants use their own personal experience of successfully applying to medical school – and studying Medicine – to support you at every stage of your application. They know which pressures and challenges are associated with each part of the application, and they will be able to guide you in how to prepare for and deal with them in a helpful way.

Our Research

Second, we use our year-on-year research into the admissions process at top medical schools to inform all our guidance. This gives us the ability to help you successfully target your application to the right medical schools – in the light of your exam results, your work experience, and your particular academic and personal strengths.

Our Advisory Panel

Third, we employ the advice and experience of former Admissions Tutors and lay members of admissions panels at top UK medical schools. This allows us to keep you fully informed about what medical schools are looking for in current candidates, and how they weigh each of the individual assessments that you will undergo in coming to their final admissions decision.
