With UCAS submission dates for medicine fast approaching, we would like to invite you to attend Med-Success 2016, a one-day preparatory seminar to equip them with the best skills and knowledge in generating a successful application to medical school.

Empower Youth Academy is a local voluntary charity set up in 2010 by a group of professionals with a passion for teaching. We work with children from all backgrounds to give them the same educational and aspirational opportunities as any other child in their age group.

We will be running the 7th annual Med-Success event at the University of Leicester on Sunday 25th September. This is a whole day event that starts at 08:45, and finishes at 17:00. Students who attend can look forward to the following items from the program:

  • One-to-one personal statement workshop with current medical students and doctors
  • Interview and feedback from a panel of current doctors and medical students who have conducted real university admission interviews
  • Excellent talks on:

o Writing a winning personal statement

o Interview tips


o Medical ethics

o Life as a medical student

o Life as a doctor

o The new multiple mini interview

o The new multiple mini interview

There will also be small group Q&A sessions for anything else the students would like to know about the application process.

In keeping with our aim of equalising opportunities for all students, we are offering all of the above (yes, and more!) for a small sum of £25, which is truly dwarfed by the gargantuan fees charged by similar programs run in other parts of the country. This is further discounted to £20 if any school brings more than ten students.

We are bound to the charity commission and so work with complete transparency. You can find all feedback, which was largely excellent, from the ‘Feedback’ tab.

Eligibility: All Year 12 and 13’s (after the summer holidays) and graduates are eligible to apply

Applications: Please visit the ‘Apply for Med Success’ tab where you can fill in the application form and receive further instructions on how to make a payment. Please note the application form and payment options are not embedded, and you will have to complete both separately. Once BOTH are received, a member of our team will be in touch to confirm your place and send further details about the course. Payment is to be made by Paypal. We will consider cheque payments in certain circumstances but please email us to discuss. If you have any questions that are unanswered by the website please email, or alternatively call 07763 340768.

Places are extremely limited and all places will be offered on a first come first served basis.
