Students & Parents

We at WAMS understand how challenging getting into medical school is, and one of the ways we try to help is to demystify the whole process. The key for us is to give you as much information as possible so you can decide what is best for you and support you should you wish to study medicine.


We know that this can be even more challenging if you are the first in your family to apply to university or you don’t know people in the medical field, and this is where WAMS comes in. WAMS is able to offer help on all stages of application and we can deliver talks in your school, college, or within the medical school.

Although WAMS is primarily here to help Nottinghamshire students we will do our best to help you wherever you are in the UK, or point you in the right direction of help as some universities run similar programmes. If you are not from Nottingham but are interested in what we offer, please do get in touch.

Follow the links to our student resources:

  • Register your school for us to come and deliver talks
  • Sign up to our events at the medical school (parents are also welcome)
  • Apply to our eMentoring programme; useful if you couldn’t make our Personal Statement evening but would still like advice on your statement
  • Find out about our work experience programme in Nottingham

Wondering about university and what it’s like to be a medical student? Follow our current students as they blog on life at medical school – from preclinical years and learning on the wards to extracurricular opportunities and having fun at the same time! You can also follow us on Twitter.

Good luck!
