We’re a team of medical students who set up this company (6med) to disrupt a market dominated by exploitative corporations. We run courses to support students with their applications to some of the UK’s top universities for medicine. We provide support with the UCAT, BMAT, Personal Statement and Interviews. Over the past 6 years, we’ve taught over 10,000 students.
6med started up in 2013 with the BMAT Crash Course, and was initially meant to be a small summer job for a group of friends from medical school. However, after realising just how much of an impact we could have, we expanded quickly with our UKCAT and Interview Crash Courses, and began to offer our services in other countries too.

Our mission is simple – to provide the most effective yet most affordable preparation courses in the world.
Preparation courses are an interesting kettle of fish. The more students are coached for particular exams, the less useful they become as a selection tool to separate the men from the boys, so to speak. But like it or not, as long as there are entrance exams, there will be companies charging extortionate prices to prepare you for them. And those who choose not to (or cannot afford to) attend their courses are often at a disadvantage. Additionally, a lot of schools with a history of getting students into Medicine offer their own BMAT and UKCAT preparation sessions, adding further imbalance to the competitive arena of medical school applications.
At 6med, we want to do something about this problem. We want to level the playing field that’s been warped by corporations profiting from the exploitation of hopeful medics. That’s why our courses are not only better than the others on the market (according to our students), but they cost substantially less as well. In addition, we have an unlimited number of bursaries available for students who find themselves unable to pay the £129 that we’re charging. To find out more, check out our Bursaries page. Ability and motivation should be the only barriers for entry into Medicine – not money.
