Peter Symonds College students are celebrating an impressive number of offers of university places to study medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine.

A total of 52 students have been offered places to study medicine, six students have places to study dentistry and six students have been offered places to study veterinary medicine.

Principal Stephen Carville says, “Places on courses such as medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine are notoriously difficult to obtain and so I am thrilled that the hard work and dedication of these students has paid off. With approximately 5000 medics starting in the UK every year a staggering 1% of all new trainee doctors nationally went to Peter Symonds College.”

Biology teacher Julian Foster said “These students have done exceedingly well. Their diligence and motivation has carried them through an extremely rigorous selection process with a demanding set of entry requirements and we wish them every success with their future studies.”
