"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the Academic Frontiers Course. It was absolutely fantastic and helped me get three interviews at London, Manchester and Oxford and offers too. I'm going to take Academic Surgery at St Mary's next year which was my first choice - I am so glad the course prepared me as thoroughly as it did!"Attendee, now Academic Foundation Doctor at St Mary's and Imperial College London
