Student gets offer to study Medicine at Oxford

Student gets offer to study Medicine at Oxford

by Tom Martin (February 2021)

A student from West Lancashire College has received an offer to study Medicine at the University of Oxford.

William Skelton, who is a former pupil of Dean Trust Rose Bridge High School, is delighted to get the offer from the prestigious university.

William has worked extremely hard over the last 18 months, culminating in some excellent predicted grades (A*, A*, A*) and superb UCAT and BMAT (medical aptitude tests) that put him in the top 20% of medical applicants in the country.

Denise Williamson, Principal at the college said: “I am very proud of Will and the work of The School of Medicine team. Will’s offer of a place to study Medicine at The University of Oxford is the result of months of hard work, dedication and preparation.

“The School of Medicine is a truly exceptional programme that was designed to give its students a distinct competitive edge, and I am therefore delighted to hear that our second-year Medical students have had interviews and offers from universities across the UK.”

Helen Sharples, teacher at Dean Trust Rose Bridge High School added: “We are so proud of all of Will’s achievements at West Lancashire College since he left Dean Trust Rose Bridge in Summer 2019.

“Will has always been tremendously committed to his studies and has taken every opportunity to do well. We wish him all the best for the future and look forward to hearing how he gets on when he enrols at Oxford to study Medicine in September.”
