WIDENING ACCESS

We guarantee a widening access place to students on every course that we run and provide free one-to-one tutoring in line with our advertised packages.

MediTutor is 150% committed to our goal of widening access to Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine and Oxbridge. Dr Chuor leads this sector of our company, read how he battled against all the odds to become a doctor and how he subsequently went on to obtain a fully-funded scholarship to study at Oxford sponsored by the university and the prestigious Chevening scholarship.

 

We don’t want money to be a barrier to higher education, and while we’ve priced our courses significantly lower than our competitors, we understand that the price might still be too high for some students. That’s why we offer a number of bursaries to students for whom entry to higher education is a realistic prospect but who, for whatever reason, would find it difficult to attend our courses on financial grounds.
