    Straight from the Source

    Greetings and Salutations,

    This is UNIC-Leaks here and we are an assemblage of first to final year students. As we are many, we will each be posting about different issues as and when they come up.

    In light of all the conflict between the administration and the student body, we have created this account to report on the latest developments happening at SGUL-UNic and if required, to publicize official documents and emails issued by the school. In doing so, this will serve to hold both the students AND the administration accountable. This will ensure that the school is held accountable to their actions/promises and that the accusations from students are justified (or not).

    Unfortunately, due to punitive measures implmented against students from the school administration at the slightest hint of dissent, we have to resort to anonymity to ensure that we are not punished/silenced/intimidated for what we see as the legitimate concerns from the student body which have otherwise been swept under the carpet.

    We hope to give potential students accurate and correct information about things such as but to limited to: Number of spots in the United States (Not Puerto Rico), Number of training spots in each clinical site, Visa requirements needed to be eligible for each clinical site, eligibility for work in the European Union and the United Kingdom upon graduation, quality of training at each clinical site etc.


    We also hope to provide you first hand information about questions you may be having about this school.

    YOU will read the documents and we will leave you to come to your own conclusions.



    Stayed tuned.

    Malta is mentioned specifically, so you would think all of those students would have been processed similarly-- having done F1 abroad

    Which internship from the list above is being considered as F1 abroad please? SGUL Unic Admin posted this on another thread showing the outcomes of their graduates. Thanks!
    It was a graduate who did F1 in Malta and subsequently was accepted into an F2 position in the UK. Our graduates currently in the Foundation programme in Malta will follow the same route once they complete their F1 training.

    Ok thanks, I think I must of misunderstood your first post. I was thinking you meant I could potentially go to another country other than Ireland or Malta and have that recognised as F1 and then go to the UK or another European country. Not really much of an option then if you Malta is not taking students and Ireland is so competitive. I will stay posted.

    Actually, you understood it correctly. It is possible to do F1 abroad in other countries beyond Malta and Ireland, as long as that internship meets certain criteria and you obtain prior approval for it.

    There's not much data as is this uncommon for students to undertake. Specific countries mentioned are Malaysia, Singapore, the US, and Malta. Presumably Ireland would also be equivalent.

    Immigrating to a country you are not from to do a medical internship I would imagine is difficult for various reasons-- visas, language, skepticism about your intentions, etc, so maybe if you are from a country that has a one year generic internship similar to F1, but you want to finish in England then this route might make sense. South Africa, India, and Pakistan come to mind since their education pathways are similar. Central and South American countries often have mandatory one year internships as well that could possibly count.

    The catch is whether those internships are organized in a manner that SGUL and it's deanery can say that they're equivalent. To make that determination though, you'd have to see SGUL and their deanery's specific policy regarding F1 outside of the U.K. It would be a shame to come to Cyprus all the way from Brazil thinking that your country's one year internship counts just to study for four years and find out that you can't get approval.
