Interview Skills

Doing well at your medical school interview is all about coming across as a friendly, likeable person who is passionate about becoming a doctor, and has the qualities, knowledge and determination to be a good one. A big part of showing this will be effective communication. You’ll be taught how to communicate effectively through:

  • Communication skills seminar
  • Answering common question types
  • Structuring your answers effectively


Common Interview Topics

We’ll teach you what you need to know about things like medical ethics, the NHS, and current affairs. This won’t be read to you, though – the entire Interview Crash Course is designed to be as interactive as possible. Some of the topics we’ll cover during the course of the day:
  • Medical ethics workshop & group work
  • NHS and Current Affairs – Things you should know
  • MMI stations – Lateral thinking & breaking bad news


Putting Your Learning Into Practice

This is where the real fun begins! We’ll give a volunteer a mock interview in front of the rest of the class whilst they watch and critique. The volunteer can (and should) use the knowledge they gained in the morning to give themselves an advantage, and after the interview, both the instructors and the other students will give them constructive feedback about what they did wonderfully and what could be improved.

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee everyone a mock interview.


Begin the day with an introduction to the interview.


We’ll then move onto the traits of a good doctor.


We’ll work on creating an experience bank.


Now is time for a break.


We’ll start talking about inner and outer game.

Time to wrap up and Q&A session to make sure everything’s clear!

Aside from Dr. J. Watson, Dr. House & Dr. Strange… No, but seriously speaking – the tutors we work with belong to the top 10% of the best universities in the UK, all of them are outstanding students and are 100% committed to helping our students get the best results in their interviews.

The Oxbridge Crash Course is designed to target the kind of topics students will face when interview at Oxford or Cambridge. These universities tend to focus more on the applicants scientific knowledge and tests their critical thinking.

The Interview Crash Course is a more general course which is more applicable to non-Oxbridge universities.

The choice is yours!

That’s right, we noticed that weekends are the best time for tutors and students, so our courses are only available on weekends. If you cannot attend any weekend, then Interview tutoring may be better suited to your schedule.

Absolutely, we recommend that when you choose the day for your course, you must be completely sure that you’ll be available to take it. Sometimes life happens though – if you can’t attend, you have 14 days to let us know.

The course is held live on our innovative teaching platform (not a boring Zoom course!). You’ll be sent over a link and a companion guide so you can follow along with ease.
