Our Subject Specialist Pathways are available to any student wanting to Get the Edge. The Pathways are best suited to students in Year 10 or above wanting to access Pre-University Subject-Specific knowledge and masterclasses clinics to develop understanding and confidence in the subject they may wish to study at university. Students will be guided by our expert network of Advisors, and will experience university-level debate.
Top UK universities are looking for intellectually curious and ambitious applicants with self-motivation and a real passion for their chosen subject. Avernus Education supports students to explore their studies beyond the school curriculum to enhance and enrich their knowledge in the subject they want to study at university. Our Subject Specialist Pathways expose students to subject-specific, degree-level concepts that will enrich knowledge as well as enhancing a personal statement, admissions test or interview to impress admissions tutors at top UK universities.
Each Pathway develops our philosophy of Education Beyond the Classroom. Pathways include carefully designed sessions to ensure students have the opportunity to pre-learn topics that are most likely to come up in an Oxbridge interview, as well as bespoke guidance about how this knowledge is essential for all UK university application preparation.
Our pathways include subject-specific options, career-specific options and age-specific mentoring. Sessions can be adjusted and personalised based on the needs and preferences of each student. A minimum of 5 hours worth of sessions is recommended, although 20-30hrs is typical for the Pathway to be effective.
In this Pathway, students will get the opportunity to explore the Medical profession through a series of dynamic academic sessions led by our expert Advisors, with a focus on knowledge enhancement and enrichment.
The Medicine Subject Pathway includes tailored specialist guidance for all higher education institution applications in the UK. Our Apply to Medicine Programme supports students beginning the process of Medical School Applications. Students can also subscribe to our MMI Masterclass.

Avernus provides individualised support and mentorship for every prospective Medical Student from top Medicine and Science tutors in the UK - including those doing active research and PhD's at Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, and UCL. Our masterclass sessions prepare students with cutting edge questions and debates in the field of Medicine to stand out.
