Learn from NHS doctors

We do not compromise on the standard of our tutors who we insist are fully qualified.

As an Orthopaedic Consultant working in the NHS I thought that I was in the best possible position to know how to get into medical school. I was wrong. Blue Peanut understand what is required and the style of questions that all prospective medical students will face. They can prepare you for the big day and actually give you the edge to succeed.

— Parent of Student KP - November 2018 Interview Course
I am currently studying at Manchester. Your course helped as it broke down the procedure and potential content of the MMI interview very well. Thus the process became much less daunting that it first appeared and I was able to navigate the process much more skilfully than without

Over 99% positive feedback

Parents, students and teachers trust us.

I obtained 2 offers from Manchester and Liverpool. The course provided in depth information about a wide array of different topics which could come up in the interview and from practicing scenarios with the wonderful tutors and watching others do the same, I was able to improve my interview skills. All in all the course greatly improved my performance in the interviews and played a pivotal part in the offers I obtained.

Blue Peanut is a professionally run outfit by experienced clinicians that have been through the process themselves, and helped many others successfully get into medical school.
Compared to many other courses out there, Blue Peanut courses are an excellent value for money, and the group sizes are smaller. Most other commercial courses are significantly more expensive, and don’t always offer personalised support.
My daughter and niece, both have attended several of their courses and found them to be helpful with lots of practical tips on succeeding in the application process.
Their instructors were enthusiastic, very resourceful and approachable. They continued to offer advice and support as follow up to the courses, which was immensely instrumental in both of my daughter and niece getting offers from prestigious universities.

I had interviews with UCLAN, Anglian Ruskin and a ‘reserve interview’ with Newcastle. I received offers from Anglia Ruskin and Newcastle. (I was on reserve at UCLAN following the MMI).
(The techniques taught on the course) reminded me to take a second before answering questions at interview building my answers in a logical order.
— Student BJ - Now medical student Newcastle University
Also thank you both so much for the great course on Sunday. I learnt a lot and found it very useful to hear others answer questions too. I feel much better prepared for my upcoming interviews.

I have observed two workshops run by Blue Peanut, and they are so incredibly thorough; they are very detailed in how you should prepare yourself for the medical profession, and give lots of support and advice to students who are interested in pursuing a medical career. I will certainly recommend these short courses and workshops to anyone I know in this field. Well done guys!!
— Carolyn Sheridan (Parent)
Blue Peanut Education provided excellent support for my son . Their courses were very well structured and professionally led. My son found the course engaging and especially enjoyed the role play sessions using various senarios. Dr Mannan was exceptionally helpful and was readily available for queries/advise leading up to the interviews. My son has now received offers from 3 out of his 4 choices ( Imperial College is his first choice ) I highly recommend Blue Peanut Education to all potential medics !
— Almas Ganatra (Parent)
Excellent course for potential medics... really helped in preparing for the real interviews. Friendly and approachable staff..
Would highly recommend to all.
— Nazma Master
Excellent set up. My boys attended their courses. The feedback I got from them was that it helped them gain a lot of confidence, knowledge and clear directions.
