There is a HUGE thread on SDN on Irish schools.

FYI, some British schools have also started to admit North American students and created Graduate Entry programs - so you might check them out as well.

Several programs in Australia admit US students (U Sydney, Flinders, U Queensland).

Dear DrB,
Last you gave me very good reply regarding Australian Schools,
I know about Irish Schools.
Could you please give me some info about "British Schools accepting
North American Students"
Where can I get the info

Thanks very much for your help

British schools do not accept US students. There is a very strict British policy stating that they will not accept students from countries with adequate medical education systems.

Isn't there a huge demand for Doctors in the UK? I remember I was in Hong Kong last year and I managed to chat to a young UK medical student who told me that there is such a need, that there was going to be a proliferation of new medical schools in the UK within the next few years.

I'm also interested to know which medical schools in the UK, if there are any, accept american students.

Canada has an adequate medical system correct?
I got into Leicester...so it should be possible for US students.

Hi. I spoke with Royal College in Ireland this week & learned that: Foreign student spots are severly restricted - only a few spots for foreigners and really only for students who come from countries with no training facilities - i.e. schools of medicine. Also no transfers and no starting over in 1st year if you have ever attended medical school someplace else. Same 2 points also goes for Manchester in the UK. However, Manchester did suggest calling around in London - King's was their specific suggestion as they are more open to taking foreign students. S-

If anyone is keen to going to RCSI I would apply there. My GPs daughter is currently attending there, it's 6 years and she wasn't really that great out of highschool (mid to high 80s)...so if she got in I think other ppl. may have a chance.

That's why I said my GPs daughter is going there -- not me :)

Yes. I think you are right. There seem to be a number of Canadians there so what they told me over the phone doesn't make that much sense. BUT I did not talk to the Dean, I only spoke with the person who answered the phone. AND likely she also only heard the fact that there are 5 or 6 of us who have already studied medicine at another school. She said that they don't accept transfers from people who have studied medicine elsewhere due to the dfact that they have full class sizes and no space for transfers. Maybe that is what she was really focusing on. I think there are a bunch of Canadians there, but it is really expensive. However, we now have our EU passports and so tuition would only be $5,000 EUR (think USD) for us rather than the true foreign tuition rate. S-

How difficult was it for you to get the EU passport?

the royal college of surgeons ireland takes 75% of its students from overseas(non european union) and only 25% from european union(the majority of these places go to irish school leavers. this is because it is a private medical school and gets the majority of its income from the non-eu students it accepts,they pay approx. 20000 a year,whereas eu students only pay 5000 a year,so even if u have an eu passport but not irish citizenship ur chances are slim as most of these few places go to irish students,on the otherhand if u are a foreign student and can pay the 20000 a year tuition then u have a much better chance because this what they are looking for,not students who only have to pay 5000.

Hi Redshifteffects.
I must correct my last post. We now have our slovak passports and it was a REAL (with big *(&^%$* capital letters), hassle. In May we will be able to apply for our EU passports. Our lawyer says that is not such a big deal if you have a passport from a pre-accession state like slovakia.... Likely by the time we're done we will have it completed!!! I've never seen such paperwork - ever. S-

Peacefuljourney,

Seems like a lot of hassle! Out of curiosity are you already of Slovkian descent or did you just as a Canadian apply for citizenship/permenant residency there??

check out atlanticbridge.com if u are an american or canadian student. rcsi have a 5 and 6 year medical program,for the five year program you will have to meet the same requirements of u.s medical schools,i.e a baccalaureate degree and mcat,but for 6 year program u can enter straight from high school.check out their website www.rcsi.ie.
