About Applican


Applican was founded in 2014 by Dr Molly Gilmartin to help local school students to prepare and improve their applications for medical school. Since that first summer, Applican has grown to provide affordable and high quality support and guidance to applicants across the UK with courses run in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Applican is run by students, for students, and our core mission is to provide comprehensive first-hand guidance to applicants of all backgrounds who are applying to UK medical schools. As current medical students we know only too well how gruelling and unforgiving the medical application process is, and with companies charging often hundreds of pounds per hour for courses and tutoring we know how expensive it can be too. We believe that entry to the medical profession should be dependent on aptitude alone, and as such our courses are run as cheaply as possible. Additionally, we also reserve 30% of the spaces on our courses as free spaces for students from low income backgrounds who would otherwise be unable to attend.

We work throughout the year to ensure our courses are concise, informative and up-to-date so that our applicants are equipped with the skills and information required to give themselves the best shot possible at gaining a place at medical school. With 94% of all Applican students having received at least one offer for medicine in the UK since its inception in 2014, the Applican model has been shown time and time again to work. 

In 2017, Applican is proud to collaborate with the charity IntoUniversity, a charity which focuses on supporting students from disadvantaged backgrounds through the university application process. Find out more about IntoUniveristy here!
