Six Old Bedalians currently studying or practicing medicine – Luke Austen, Adam Osborne, Claudia Anholt, Ollo Catton, Molly Graham and George Sinclair – will be joining us for this event. Each of the OBs will talk about their application journeys and where they are now, and students will also have the opportunity to ask questions.

He spent four years in Exeter (two mostly lectures and learning life sciences, two placement based) and one year in Truro, Cornwall (all placement). He chose not to intercalate but he is now completing a Master’s degree in Global and Remote Medicine at the University of Plymouth (long distance due to COVID) whilst also working as an F2 (18 months out of graduation), in Aberystwyth for the year.
Claudia Anholt, Fourth year, University of East Anglia
Claudia left Bedales in 2014. She did not get into medicine first time round and did not put down a fifth choice, as she only wanted to do medicine. She was going to re-apply following A Level results, but with AAB she applied to the University of Liverpool to do Biomedicine through clearing. Once she completed this degree, she re-applied to medicine and is currently in her fourth year at the University of East Anglia (UEA).
