    Questions regarding the RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland)

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone!
    I'm a Taiwanese student studying abroad at Tokyo.
    I'm currently in an International School.
    I've applied to RCSI already. I am just wondering about the studying environment in RCSI as well as teaching styles and tuition fees (I checked the school's website and found out that the tuition fee is pretty expensive for non-EU students...are there loans or financial aids for non-EU students??).

    *Also, I was wondering that if it's possible for students to transfer from RCSI to UK medical schools after the first year??

    The UK application....hmm...I actually did apply...the story went like this:
    I just transferred to the current International School in my senior year, therefore the teachers here couldn't give me
    any expected grades.
    I heard that the UK medical schools give out offers based on expected grades, which I got 0 = = Therefore, all of my choices were unsuccessful.
    I was a little bit of mad at my counselor for not telling me that he didn't put any expected grades into my UCAS application, which I just got them recently for the RCSI application (38, which is pretty high for IB expected grades-->the max you can get for 6 subjects is 42).
    I guess I can't all blame it on my counselor since no one transfers to new school in his/her SENIOR year.......but it's because of Taiwanese military problems.

    *Do you think it's possible to contact all the UK medical schools and inform them of my expected grades? Do you think they will reconsider my application after it's unsuccessful?

    From what I know of medical schools in the UK, transferring can be rather tricky. Some UK schools will not accept any transfers what so ever. Others, on the other hand, are willing to accept transfers from students already studying at a UK medical school. I would have thought that your best option would be to apply via UCAS with your actual IB scores.

    Good luck!
