    UK person applying for 4 year course this year - accepted by GMC? Hard?

    Advertisements



    Hi, i'm from uk, applied for the 4 year medicine course in Warsaw but suddenly realised, after googling, that it may not be an accepted amount of years for GMC registration in the UK and EU. Does anyone know if this is true?

    Also, if there is anyone currently on the 4 year course, is it so difficult, the brain simply gives up, on top of that, learning a new language?

    I'm considering applying for the 6 year course, but there's an entrance exam, and its only 11 days away!! (as read on the website), its a bit annoying as I wanted to apply for this year.

    It is accepted in the UK, no PLAB or IELTS required. 4 Years MD programs are designed for graduates same as the UK's 4 years GEP course. The 6 years MD is designed for secondary schools students who are completing their GCSE's.

    as long as You have done 1200 hours of undergraduate study before You enter the programme,Your qualification can be accepted anywhere in the EU.You have to complete 5200 hours to meet the EU requirements.if You have a degree,apply to the 4 year programme,6 years is way too long!But it's best to call the GMC and ask specifically about the university You're interested in.

    hey thanks for replies, in that case, I think i'm going to go with the 4 years and I do have a science Bsc degree with the correct hours required to apply. The only restrictions were GMC registration and how intense and time demanding the 4 year course is. Learning the language + the work load of the 4 year programme must be very difficult.

    Indeed,learning the language is a pain and the 4 year programme is very intense and condensed but You'll be fine... Make sure You call the GMC and ask for details about the university You're interested in,but You shouldn't have any problems in any country in the EU since You're graduating from a EU university with the correct number of hours.Whatever You do,all the best!

    i have a quick question about when i could (if i decide to apply to MUW) apply for the 2012 year? will they be the same dates as that of the 2011 year? meaning, opening in May and closing in June/July?

    also, do they have a new class starting each semester like schools in the caribbean or is it just one new class per semester year?

    i really appreciate any help

    hey I think it'll be the same as this year, apply in May receive in July/August. I just got accepted for this year so if you apply next year, I wish you all the best. Its not like the Carribean, the course will start at the end of September/early October only. Hope that helps!

    well, i took a look at this site too late, since it's been 3 years since i last looked at this. and congrats on getting accepted. i'm going to be a 4th year student for the 6y program. so i can't really tell u much about the qualifications. but it's true, i have many friends from the 4y program, it is very demanding. it takes studying to a whole new level, as you'll find out, that even though you read a lot, memorize as much as you can, it can still be hard to pass some anatomy credits, or some other exams (because the way the exams are written, eg. i memorized 3 books for microbiology, and myself along with 90% of the class still got a 3 - pass for our finals, because they can test u on anything they wish, not necessarily must be from the book), but fear not, retake is always there, and generally, if you study throughout the year, and limit the partying, you'll pass for sure. i'm speaking from the point of view of a 6y prog student, and i must say, the 4y guys study way more than us, but hey u finish 2 years earlier. the language won't be a problem, as it's not really THAT important, unless you really want to perform extraordinarily well in clinics, and even then, all the doctors/fellow students who are of polish decent, will translate everything. Most foreigners don't even bother to learn polish, i try, cause it's more convenient to live and make friends. so that's my 2 cents on the matter, if you have more questions feel free to ask or pm me. good luck!
