Medical Society

At Cardinal Newman College we have some fantastic opportunities and support available to students who are considering applying for medicine-related degree courses, such as Vet Science, Dentistry or Medicine itself.

Thinking of a career in Medicine?

If you have a strong and realistic commitment to studying within the field of Medicine, also including Dentistry or Veterinary Science at University, then the Medical Society is an enrichment programme which can develop and support you on your way.

Some of the benefits of joining this society include receiving guidance on writing a UCAS personal statement, information regarding the UKCAT/BMAT exams and preparation for possible questions at interviews.

For several years, Cardinal Newman College has worked closely with the Oxfizz educational charity to run MMI (Multiple Mini Interview) training events providing a complete two-hour simulation of the whole process. The students who take part in this event not only gain a great deal of insight into the structure and level of challenge of the MMI, they are also given highly detailed individual reports that provided feedback on their performance and advice on how to improve.

This event is just one of a number of ways that we support medical applicants at Cardinal Newman College and as a result, we have seen increasing numbers of students successfully gaining places. For more information about the MMI event click here.
