Medical Education Support Society (MESS)


Barts and the London Medical Education Support Society (MESS): Barts' largest society that prides itself on providing quality peer teaching to support students in years 1, 2, and 3.


"BL MESS - the only soceity that everybody joins!"

What We Do

It is no secret that medical school can seem daunting, and there are always lectures and topics you may want some extra support with. The BL Medical Education Support Soceity (MESS) is here to help! We are a peer-teaching society, run by senior medical students, who aid and assist the studies of younger students in years 1, 2, and 3.

As a soceity we run regular online revision sessions that provide a relaxed environment in which to further your understanding of lecture content and ask questions to students who have been in exactly the same position as you just a few years ago. 
For students in years 1 and 2, in the weeks leading up to progress tests, MESS also runs Progress Test Crash Courses at the Perrin Lecture Theatre where the PBLs, key lecture content, anatomy, and histology are covered to provide you with the knowledge and resources to excel in your assessments. For students in year 3 we provide these crash courses for CSP, PH, and HSPH. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend our sessions!


  • Regular online teaching sessions covering key lecture-based content
  • Pre-Progress Test Crash Courses in-person at the Perrin Lecture Theatre
  • The largest society at Barts and the only society that everybody joins 
  • Be taught by students who were where you are now just a few years ago - our teachers know exactly what is difficult and how best to prepare for assessments


Memberships subs are just £1, and allow you access to all of MESS' teaching sessions, crash courses, and online resources.
