Medical Applications and offer at Imperial College London
Discover how William Clarence’s medical school application consultants supported an aspiring medical student to achieve a place at Imperial College London
William Clarence are proud to be not only one of the country’s top higher education consulting firms but also to be home to some of the UK’s best medical school application consultants.
With our knowledge and depth of experience, we have successfully supported numerous students from across the globe with their UK medical school applications, offering them only the very best advice and support to maximise their chances of admission to study for a degree in medicine or the medical sciences.
In this case study, we follow the story of just one of these students, exploring how our experts helped him overcome the hurdles involved in his medical application and become accepted on a reputable course with Imperial College London.
William Clarence was approached by a student and his family from Russia. The student was in need of dedicated help in forming his medical school application.
He had a good idea of what he wanted to do in the future but was unclear on how best to approach his UCAS application and the content of his personal statement in relation to his course choices and content of his personal statement.
While the student had received valuable support from his school for the ‘external’ examinations, he, unfortunately, lacked the confidence needed for the interview process, if he was lucky enough to be invited to attend.
As such, the student researched appropriate undergraduate medical school courses and then reviewed a long list of options (for both universities and courses) before focusing on a final list of four medical courses and one additional non-medicine programme, Biomedical Science.
The William Clarence approach
Our medical school application consultants at William Clarence reviewed the student’s academic profile and long-term aspirations and subsequently developed a strategic approach to his final choices by assessing the success rate of each medical school in relation to places available and expected external test scores.
This allowed for the refining of a shortlist; the student made ambitious choices in terms of applying to 5 high-ranking universities.
The student was supported by our consultants throughout the process of applying through UCAS. Wider reading recommendations, guided applications for work experience and other means of support enabled the student to build a strong profile to evidence in his personal statement.
Our consultants also took the time to run mock interviews with the student, as well as discussing and developing robust strategies and techniques to boost the student's confidence and maximise his chances for success.
As a result of the student’s hard work and the dedication of William Clarence’s medical school application consultants, the student was invited to three interviews - both formal and MMI - and was subsequently offered three places at Medical School, plus a Biomedical Science option.
The student is now looking forward to continuing their studies at their firm option – Imperial College London.
