Deciding to study medicine and applying to Medical/Dental School is a big step. The vocational nature of the medical degree indicates that you have made a decision about a course of study and also your future career.

"Shortly after attending the Interview course at 3fivetwo, I was invited to interview for medicine at Queens, Glasgow and Dundee. After interview, I was made an offer for each Medical school. I would accredit my success in these interviews to having gained skills, and a lot more confidence, from the Interview skills course I undertook...I could not have been happier with the experience I had there, all the people were so friendly and all the information received was useful..." Patrick Hart
