In Ireland You can't.You can do a foundation year at DIFC which is part of Griffith college.
If You get the grades You need you are given a place at the Royal college of surgeons in Ireland,in Dublin,a great university,very well reputable in Europe and abroad.DIFC is great at preparing students and many unis in the UK accept their foundation year as an entry route for a variety of courses(sadly,it doesn't include medicine).The downside is that if You're a foreigner,You have to pay 45 thousand euros a year to study at RCSI.Undoubtedly,it's a great medical school,but expensive.

Thanks for your reply. Do you have a link to Griffith College's program, as I couldn't find it.

Thanks.

Thanks a lot.

But, that is not Griffith College, is it?

Griffith college is a university in Dublin.DIFC is a constituent college responsible for foundation programmes inside Griffith.As a university,Griffith college has many smaller constituent colleges and DIFC is one of them.

That is an interesting option, but an expensive one. I would like to know how the quality is at Griffin.

Let's say you have no basic science or math skills or courses taken: if you go there for a year, can you actually learn enough to fully understand and be prepared for medical school?
