Scholarships and Bursaries
Widening Access to Medical School
Bursaries & Scholarships
Money should never be a barrier to getting into medical school. Alongside our free resources, sessions, and advice, we're currently working hard to offer as many bursaries as we can for our courses. We encourage anyone who would like to attend our courses, but is unable to due to financial hardships, to apply for a bursary. Due to high demand, we do our absolute best to allocate bursaries fairly, distributing higher amounts to students who are in greater need. However, we don't have unlimited bursaries, so we may not always be able to accommodate requests. Please only apply for the amount that you need due to the limited nature of our bursaries.
APPLYING FOR A BURSARY
If you're a student who could use financial support in paying for a course, we encourage you to fill out the application form below. Ideally, we'd like to see that you're working hard towards your goals, are predicted the grades needed, and have some sort of financial hardship preventing you from being able to pay for our course(s) in full. You can apply for a partial bursary (10-90%) to cover part of the cost, or a full bursary to cover the whole cost. We may ask for evidence of your financial situation.
Applications are generally processed within 7 working days. You will be contacted via email.
The UK has a large BAME population, but only a small minority of medical students are from BAME backgrounds. There are various factors leading to this disparity, some of those being:
For these reasons, we are now offering a full scholarship available to students from BAME backgrounds. We are currently able to offer this to 10 students, and hope to grow this number. This scholarship will include:
A free place on our UCAT masterclass
A free copy of our UCAT eBook
2. Personal Statement
A free place on our Personal Statement Masterclass
A free Personal Statement Planner
A free personal statement review
A free place on our Interview Masterclass
A free copy of our Interview eBook
A free place on our BMAT Masterclass
1x Free BMAT essay marking
5. Ongoing Support
We hope that this will be a huge help to students who are dedicated and have excellent work ethic, but simply lack the resources and are disadvantaged due to various factors in their lives. Because the places are very limited, all students who are interested must go through an application process.
The deadline for students applying in the 2021 cycle is 1st May 2021. Successful applicants will be informed by 14th May 2021.
Note: For successful applicants that have already paid towards any of the services included in the scholarship, we will provide a full refund for those services. This does not include paperback books from Amazon.
Becoming a Medic Hut scholar was one of the best things that happened to me this year. With it, I found a team of amazing mentors and other people in my situation that I could share my experiences with. Applying for medicine isn’t easy but as a scholar I felt supported, looked after and encouraged throughout the process with UCAT and interview mastercalsses, detailed feedback on my personal statement and lots more. With Medic Hut’s help, I got an offer at the school of my dreams!
The Medic Hut Scholarship has helped with my application immensely. From the masterclasses to the personalised advise they gave has helped me gain an offer from my first choice university. As a student who has no family background in healthcare or higher education, I am immensely greatful to the team for taking me on. 🥰
The opportunity to be a part of the scholarship programme is one for which I am honestly so grateful. As someone who had initially struggled with Medicine admissions, having the different mentors and sessions available was so helpful. From the UCAT masterclasses to the Personal Statement books and continued one-to-one help with both the PS and Interview, I feel I became way more confident. The whole team are always ready to help and are very positive in their encouragements. This scholarship covers all areas of the admissions process, so I was certain that it will allow me to do well during the process- I feel this was clearly reflected through obtaining the offers I received from the medical schools and I do not think I could have done it without the team here! Thank you for this opportunity. 🙂
The scholarship was an amazing opportunity to get support for my medical application without worrying about the financial hurdles. The interview and ucat masterclass as well as the personal statement review were 100% useful and relevant and allowed me to make an application that I was confident in.
