The UCLH Careers in Healthcare Summer School is a quite unique opportunity to acquire a range of experiences which will help both with your decision making as to which profession you want to apply for and give you  something very different to talk about in your university interview.

"In my opinion the UCLH summer school was an invaluable experience that really helped confirm my determination to become a doctor. It helped me develop a more mature and informed approach to applying for medical school. It was a very useful thing to be able to mention in my personal statement and at interview which I think helped me stand out from other candidates as being committed and proactive."
