    Straight from the Source

    Advertisements



    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.

    I am interested in this program and can I please know more information about the Foundation years and GMC registration for a future student from Australia. The information about this school is so sparse . Thank you very much for the effort of letting the future students know more about the college.

    Greetings and salutations,


    In order to qualify for Conditional registration to practice in Australia without sitting any qualifying exams, you need to have a medical registration from one of the "competent authorities" listed on the Medical Council of Australia's website.

    (Proof: Google search Competent authority registration australia)

    As a graduate from this school, you will be awarded a a UK medical degree. However, in order to practice in Australia you will need a GMC registration number. In order to obtain medical registration with the GMC, you will need to do your Foundation Training in the UK.

    As of this point in time, the only way which you can qualify for a Foundation training position (Internship year) in the UK is to either hold a UK or EU passport.

    If you do not have either of these passports, you are ineligible to apply for foundation training. As a result, you will not be given a GMC registration.

    Australians, Americans, Canadians, New Zealanders and citizens from all Middle East countries are all INELIGIBLE to apply for work in the UK.

    Without a GMC registration, you will not be allowed to apply back to Australia. Furthermore, as in IMG even if you have the right to work in Australia, you will not be able to apply for Internship in Australia as preferences go to Citizens from Australian medical schools and international students from Australian medical schools. In short, all internship spots are filled by local students and there are more local graduates than internship spots.

    (Proof: google search intern residents guide 2014 v2 amsa )


    As of this point in time, there are approximately 25% of final year students who are set to graduate in May but have had their UK application rejected solely on the basis that they do not have a visa or right to work in the UK. These students will be holding a UK medical degree but with no possibility of working as a doctor in the UK, Australia or New Zealand.

    Thank you very much for the info. The UNIC administration told me that as an Australian, one can apply Foundation years through tier 5 visa in the UK. Is there a possibility in this regard as the university claims?

    Greetings and salutations,

    As of this point in time, that claim from the UNIC administration is FALSE.

    As of this moment, all Tier 5 visa holders (Australians, Canadians and New Zealanders) have had their application REJECTED by the UK Foundation Programme Office.

    The administration is working to overturn this decision. However, it has been 2 months and no progress has been made.

    And at this moment in time, the statement made by the UNIC administration is incorrect, false and misleading. However, if there are further changes the the visa status of these students, we will update our posts as necessary.

    Thank you very much for offering this service to potential applicants/prospective students, even though it is of no benefit to the students already enrolled in the program. It is good to hear both sides of every story and I'm certain this means a lot to many people. I am wondering whether North American students who have applied for dual citizenship (and a European passport) encounter the same trouble finding work after the program is done. The question is a little vague and there many not be many students who fit the bill, but any insight would be helpful!

    If you have dual citizenship, then it may be possible to work in the U.K. depending on how Brexit goes. If at any point you want to work in the US though, you will need to complete a US residency from start to finish. If you're American and you want to come home after graduation, the UK is not an end-around to the match and residency. If you want to work in Europe afterwards, and you have an EU passport, I can think of about a dozen international European schools with better reputations.

    Thank you very much for giving a picture of reality that is happening in SGUL-UNIC. The UNIC administration also claims that we can do Foundation years in Malta. Is there any truth in this claim?? Thank you very much for helping out the prespective students.

    A few have gone to Malta in the past. The Maltese foundation program is not something you can bank on though as there are few spots and the priority is Maltese, then European, then everyone else. Plus why would you want to? The pay is terrible and you are obliged to learn Maltese. It was a last ditch effort by the school to get some non-EU students foundation year posts and boost their "match" rate initially.

    Greetings and salutations,

    As of this point in time, NO the SGUL-Unic Students who are not EU citizens are NOT ALLOWED TO APPLY to the Malta Foundation programme.

    Furthermore, even if you are a European citizen, there is now a requirement to pass the Maltese Language test before you are allowed to enter the Malta Programme.

    TLDR: No, Malta is closed to SGUL-Unic students.
