Bolster your chances for medical school admission with support from William Clarence’s experts 

Applying to medical school is truly exciting – but more competitive than ever before. 

Medical school is the first step to embarking on a career that could see you making a positive difference in the lives of hundreds of people.  

While medicine takes much longer to study than other degree subjects (around five to seven years), it is also rewarding, fascinating, and opens many different doors to the successful graduate.  

According to the Medical Schools Council, however, there are only 9,500 medical school places available in the UK for 2021, and there has already been a record-breaking total of 28,690 applications so far this year. 

This statistic alone highlights medical schools as among the most challenging to secure a place at. 

“Being a doctor is an extremely rewarding career, but it’s exceptionally challenging to enter the profession. Medical students should have academic excellence, strong scientific ability, commitment, tenacity, organisation skills, people skills, empathy, excellent communication skills, the ability to work in a team, leadership, stress management, the desire to learn and teach... and this is all before they start thinking about the application process. You need to be standing out very early on!”
