The venue is a 2 minute walk from Clifton Village where you will find an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants and boutiques as well as useful high street shops.

Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Observatory and the famous Clifton downs are all within 3 minutes walk of Engineers House and a perfect place to escape to at the end of the course.

Taxi ranks can be found at the train station. When leaving Engineers’ House the on site team can book one for you. We advise booking ahead to avoid waiting when you depart.

The number 8 and 9 buses stop directly outside Engineer’s House every 10 minutes and depart from the city centre and Bristol Temple Meads train station.

See What Our Past Course Attendees Thought

We reviewed over 3000 anaesthetic CVs and applications, interviewed over 1000 successful candidates and always love hearing how the candidates that we have coached have not only got a job but have secured their top ranked job in their hospital and city of choice for anaesthetic training.

  • This is a great course and helped me to get my first chocie job in Oxford
    Abdi, Oxford, UK
  • Having attended 3 different courses (as this was my second year applying) your course was definitely the best and it is amazing how much is crammed in. Thanks again.
    Pete, Severn Deanery, UK
  • I got my first choice job and ranked in the top 10 thanks to you guys. The interview skills are worth the price alone and the mocks were very realistic with some of the questions coming up in the real thing!
    Johnny, North West Thames Deanery, UK
  • The clinical content is at a very high level. I was really worried about the clinical station and the course massively helped me both with my knowledge and confidence. For the price this is a no-brainer to attend (though I'm glad some of my peers didn't!).
    Ben, Peninsula Deanery, UK
  • I got my first choice job thanks to your excellent course. This was probably the best use of my study budget ever!
    Samantha, Wessex Deanery, UK
  • I used both the question bank and attended the interview course and couldn't have felt more prepared. The course was way better than the deanery teaching that we receive on both clincial topics and on interview technique. Thanks again and hopefully I can come back as faculty :)
