How does dentistry interview tuition work?

Dentistry interview tuition is essential for aspiring dental students for many reasons. This tuition provides thorough preparation, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to navigate the dental school admission interview effectively. This preparation includes familiarizing with common questions and strategies to build confidence and enhance communication skills. Additionally, through mock interviews, you can identify strengths and areas for improvement, refining your techniques and boosting your chances of an offer.

  • The tutoring hours can cover various aspects of the dental school interview process, including mock interviews, personalized feedback, guidance on answering common interview questions, advice on body language and communication skills, and strategies for handling challenging situations.
  • Sessions are held online usually via Zoom based on timings that work for both you and the tutor.
  • The first session may serve as an assessment to see where you’re at – what you’re good at and where you might need help. It’ll also give you an idea of what to expect from your tutoring sessions.
  • Further sessions will be agreed on and arranged as needed.
  • If you want, we can assign you one or more tutors to increase your chances of success.

The interview prep with Hajer was very helpful in securing an offer. The sessions were very insightful! She explains what the interviewer is looking for in an answer and what different universities look for in a candidate. She also helped me with structuring my answers so that I don’t lose my train of thought mid answer. The feedback was constructive and honest to help you improve. Overall a great experience!!

Student Reviews

I had interview tutoring sessions with Hajer and Ajethan, which I found extremely helpful. Each session was very structured and organized, and they were tailored to what I needed help with. Overall I think these sessions gave me a lot of confidence going into my interviews. I received 4 offers for Dentistry, and this achievement definitely wouldn’t have been possible without my tutors’ help!

I had interview tutoring sessions with Anna, Patrycja, Warda and Sukruth and they were all amazing! I was able to get university-specific advice for my interviews, and each tutor had their unique style of tutoring which I found very useful! I have got an offer for both Imperial and King’s and I’m still waiting on the other 2 unis. This definitely would not have been possible without the help of my tutors!

MedicHut was honestly the most useful resource I had over the last year. MedicHut took me from an average UCAT and BMAT score to a really good UCAT score and a very high BMAT score. They gave me all the confidence, knowledge and the techniques I needed to know for my interviews specific to each university. I ended up with four interviews and three offers post-interview. All the tutors were excellent.

How do I schedule dentistry interview tuition once I pay?

The fastest way to begin tuition is to contact us on WhatsApp at +44 7851 862356 with your booking confirmation and we’ll get you set up with a tutor who suits your requirements.

When can I start my interview tutoring sessions?

How flexible is my dentistry interview tuition?

Who will be my dentistry interview tutor?

Our tutors are all medical or dental students. We have over 100 tutors from universities across the UK. You can request tutor(s) from the universities you have applied to. For example, you might book 20 hours of tuition and have 5 hours with each of the 4 tutors, one specific to each of the universities you’ve applied to. This would be classified as university-specific tuition. You may also prefer just one or two tutors to support you with your general interview preparation. This may depend on which stage you’re at in your interview preparation. We advise starting with generalized support, and then ensuring university-specific support once you’ve tackled general knowledge and skills. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and preferences.

What if I don’t like my interview tutor?

All of our tutors are highly skilled and trained to provide excellent service. However, if you’re unhappy with your tutor, simply let us know after your first session and we can change tutors for you. Everyone has their learning style, and different tutors will have different teaching styles. If you feel your tutor’s teaching style doesn’t suit you, there’s nothing to worry about. We won’t deduct the hour if you ask to change tutors after one session.

Can I have my sessions in person?

Your tuition is held virtually via Zoom, Google Meets, or Teams. It may be possible to arrange in-person tuition depending on your tutor’s availability.

What improvement can I expect from my interview tutoring sessions?

Who better to practice with than a MedicHut-certified interview tutor? Improve your dentistry and MMI interview skills with one-to-one personalized support, and if you’re unhappy, we have a 100% refund policy on the first lesson.

Can I get a bursary for dentistry interview tuition?

We currently offer bursaries for our live courses and MMI circuits. We don’t have any bursaries at the moment for one-to-one support. Please see our bursary page for more details.

Can I split the cost of tuition payments?

If you’d like to split the cost of payment, you can do so for 2, 3, or 4 months. If you’d like to register for this, simply select your desired payment plan under ‘Payment’ when booking. This will charge you for the first installment, and all future installments will go out of your account automatically on the same day each month until the balance is settled. For instance, if you are purchasing 10 hours over 2 monthly installments, you will pay £175 upfront and then receive another charge of £175 one month later.

This is not a finance option, and as such, there aren’t prerequisites for approval. However, you would be under contract to complete your payments and be liable for any unpaid services, which you can find more information about in our terms and conditions.

Please note that when you’re splitting the cost of payments, you’re limited to a maximum number of tuition hours per month. For example, if you’re splitting the cost of 40 hours of tuition over 4 months, you can use up to 10 hours per month of tuition.
