Record breaking year for our medics, dentists and vets

Medical Students at Wyke

In recent years, Wyke Sixth Form College has seen twenty-six students successfully go on to study medicine, dentistry and veterinary science at university. This is a figure Wyke are extremely proud of and this year it’s set to increase even more as we have a record number of students with offers for the above courses.

This year, nine students have gained places at fantastic universities across the country to study these prestigious courses; two students have been offered places to study dentistry, four for medicine and three are hoping to study veterinary science.

Valerie Evans, Head of Faculty, said, “All of our students have done fantastically well to secure these offers and we wish them the best of luck in the rest of their examinations. All the staff at Wyke have shown nothing but support to all our students applying to university and have gone above and beyond to help them secure the future they want and subsequently deserve.”

Former Malet Lambert student, Sian Forrester, has accepted an offer on a BDF Dentistry course at Sheffield University and has appreciated all the support offered by Wyke. She said, “Through the Wyke Medics Society I attended a dentistry summer school at Sheffield University. This introduced me to dental charting and working with phantom heads. The whole experience really gave me an insight to what it would be like to be a dentist.”

A full interview broadcast on BBC Radio Humberside with Sian and fellow medical students is available to watch on the Wyke YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHUEtdAqE4k
