    St Georges London (Nicosia) VS University of Warsaw

    Advertisements



    Hey Guys, I was hoping to get any advice re the two schools above. In terms of getting into the F1 programme in the UK and the quality of teaching, would people recommend St Georges University of London programme offered in Cyprus or The University of Warsaw. I know the fees at St Georges are much greater, but fees aside where would people recommend?

    Any advice would be greatly received.

    University of Nicosia Medical School offers the St Georges 4 year programme and their own 6 year programme. It is important to note, that while you are enrolled in the St Georges course, it is delivered by the University of Nicosia and you do not have the same academic support and facilities as the students in London. When the school established it relied heavily on the St Georges name however after 4 years they are making it very clear that they are their own school. That being said, if you are interested in the UK you do follow a UK curriculum and will be familiar with the NHS (although you don't get to experience it first hand - no opportunities to study in the UK). The lecturers are generally good and understanding lecturers is not generally a problem. Not all doctors are familiar with UK guidelines which sucks as thats what our exams are based on. A lot of the time we do feel like 2nd class citizens compared to the London students who have the advantage of being taught by those who write the exams and get extra resources like lecture recordings and extra revision classes! You pay for the 'prestige' of a UK medical programme however it does not actually put you at an advantage when applying for F1 once you have demonstrated eligibility to apply. You would be eligible if you went to Warsaw too. If you are non european, studying in Nicosia will not help you get a visa to complete the F1 programme after. Hope any of this information helps!

    Thank you so much for the reply!

    I really should have explained my situation a little better. I am a graduate looking at the 4 year programmes offered by each university. I am also a British citizen.

    When it comes to applying to do F1 I thought coming from a UK medical school (st.georges) may be beneficial, or is this not the case? I.e would both St.Georges and Warsaw be viewed in the same light when applying for F1?

    Thanks for your response
