    Thought of trying PMC too... But i can't exactly communicate in Malay at all, so doing my clinicals in Msia might not be the best of ideas. Russian schools aren't exactly viable for Singaporeans cos Russian schools are not registrable with the Singapore Medical Council, unless of course you complete your post-grad training somewhere else.

    There are mainly 2 reasons why people go to IMU, one is lack of funding (or you are a PSD scholarship holder bound for PMC), another is you had been unsuccessful in your application to other universities and take IMU as the last resort. Also, the IMU campus is very small, I'm sure you have seen it. It was previously a shopping complex, though they had since done some renovations and added a new wing. The students there are mostly Malaysians, however there are Singaporeans and Sri Lankans. As for the lecturers, I'm not too sure. But JI heard recently that there was a management shuffle in the university and many good lecturers left.

    Anyway, if you are considering taking PMC, I suggest that you make out your mind prior to entering IMU because when you have decided to do so, in your third year you will be matched to a PMC. You will be guaranteed a place in a PMC but not guaranteed a place in the university of your choice. Hence, it's very important to make up your mind from the beginning and make sure you have the finances. If you originally decided on PMC but changed your mind after bieng matched a PMC thnere may not be a place for you in clinical school.

    For myself, i'll definitely be going to their partner medical schools, if not i won't exactly be able to practice in Singapore. Yea... Actually, i was wondering if i were to do my medical studies in Penang Medical College, for my clinicals in Penang Medical College, would i be at a disadvantage if i cannot communicate in Malay, considering that most of my attachments would be in perak/penang?

    Not possible as far as i know, they only hold a few days of interview...and they pack people into slots back to back, so yea, students are not really the ones choosing their interview slots but are rather allocated...but i'm not too sure myself, you might want to ask them

    It would seem that you don't have to be fluent in Malay to be successful in the PMC/UCD/RCSI programme (according to Ms Leong in Admissions), having said that you would be at an advantage if you were able to communicate in Malay.
    For the first 3 years you would be spending most of your time with the Malasian students in Ireland, therefore it wouldn't be too hard to pick up the language and be semi-fluent in 3 years.

    I think you would have to prove extenuating circumstances for a different interview slot - as the previous poster said interviews are held back to back.
