I agree with mellsworth21 that staying in Canada might be the best or most likely option for a number of reasons.
- Check out the citizenship issue in detail with the High Commission - I thought you needed to be UK-resident for 3 years?
- Check out separately the precise UK university rules on international student criteria versus home student.
- Quality med. schools all over the world are rather mean when it comes to transfers - they don't like it.
- You might get in, but be required to start over again. The schools may cite differences in the curriculum as justification.
- Be aware that the majority of our med. courses are 5-year. Graduate entry 4-year courses only began a few years ago.
If you do decide to go ahead send a really good CV with references to a number of target universities. Do not rely solely on compassionate grounds ("I want to be with my husband"). Rather, persuade them that you will be an asset to their course: admissions tutors are always on the lookout for the exceptional person who will bring character, unusual experiences or intellect to their cohort of students.
