We have considerable experience of the difficulties faced by students who are applying for some of the more competitive courses such as Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science and Law. We liaise with admissions tutors both before and after the publication of examination results and we have developed strong links with many of the university departments attended by MPW students in the past.
We hold a preliminary open meeting for lower-sixth students and their parents at the beginning of the Summer term. For those joining us in the upper sixth or retaking A levels, discussions about university entrance and application procedures begin in earnest during the initial student interview. Students are encouraged to make full use of the opportunity for interview practice provided at MPW, including the use of video facilities where appropriate.
As part of the application process, our students attend a series of seminars, each targeted at a particular degree course and led by admissions tutors and other professionals in the field. Students who are aiming for Art School follow a portfolio preparation programme.
The college offers specialist preparation for UKCAT, BMAT, LNAT and other university entrance tests.
