    LSMU

    Advertisements



    I have had the opportunity to talk to LMSU on hotmail and I am somewhat concerned. I have just discovered that they have changed their address from [email protected] to [email protected] this concerns me.

    Every time I talk to them they bring up the issue of money. They keep asking when I will send my tuition payment. They have not even offered me a place yet. I have also told them I will not send any money to anyone until I have visited the University. The payment details are to a personal bank account which I am informed by the school is the account of the admissions tutor.

    The fees are 3000 a year which includes basic accomodation. This is why I am considering studying there.

    *****_LSMU seems to be a bit keen and maybe a bit immature to go into medicine at this stage. I am currently a student nurse but I wish to study medicine and I would like to say that the profession requires a sense of maturity and is about more than academic ability. I motice that you are only 16 years old which is still young and I do not feel you have developed the maturity required to study medicine.

    I do not know you though ***** and it would be wrong for me to make a judgment as I have never met you but your repeated posts are worrying. You seem very keen to promote the LSMU and I wonder whether you are setting yourself up for a fall. The selection of a Med School needs to be an objective descision and your posts seem very emotional and subjective. I would suggest you take a step back and take a long think before you part with any money.

    I will be attending Kiev in the summer when I finish the year at University and will spend some time in the Ukraine and visit the University.

    The fees are very cheap which is my main reason for looking into the school.

    When you graduate from LMSU you WILL have to take the PLAB. This situation is the same for ALL non EU medical schools. Please read the GMC site very carefully. Until recently Australian Doctors were exempt from PLAB but they now have to sit it as the GMC feel that it is discriminatory to allow some non EU countries exemption from PLAB and not others. This means that ALL non EU/EEA graduates have to sit PLAB no exceptions.

    *****_LSMU do you mind if I ask how you are funding the course? I am having trouble obtaining the money I need. How have you managed to get the money? I do not know many 16 year olds with 18,000 to spare.

    How do you know that this is not a scam?

    Once you send your money, you do not have any recourse.

    hotmail account??

    Does anyone know of any other cases where a university official has used a hotmail account for university correspondence?

    Just wondering.

    hmmm

    I do not know that this is not a scam but it appears to be so. That is why I have insisted upon visiting the University before I send any money. The University has 2 websites and 2 hotmail accounts. This does not seem right to me.

    I want this to be a genuine school as their course fees are within my budget and the GMC seem to know who the school are. This does not mean the person I have been talking to is genuine though.

    I am dissapointed that ***** hasn't replied.

    Skip it. I can't believe they would have a hotmail account. That is downright scary. G

    That part is a scam?

    If a part of their site is a scam what makes you think the rest isnt?

    I query your age because I am concerned that a 16 year old isn't sitting A Levels and applying to a UK medical school. It would take the same length of time and would be free. In fact any UK citizen can study at any european medical school and they dont have to pay any fees.

    I comment on your maturity because some of your posts are a bit untoward. I wish you the best of luck but as a Healthcare Professional I have to raise my concerns.

    How did you send the money to LSMU? How do you advise prospective students to send the money?

    Please stay in touch and let us know how you get on. If this is a genuine University then I will attend myself.
