    Other UK Schools

    Advertisements



    I know this isn't StChris specific but I thought you guys might know. What is the deal with other UK schools such as Imperial College of Medicine? Do they accept US students? If so how hard is it to get in? I don't see a forum on here for UK schools other than St Chris. Thanks for the info.

    You can get that info from the U.K. forums.

    http://www.medschoolguide.co.uk/forum/

    The U.K. has a policy to accept mostly students from countries of need. These include Africa, Southeast Asia, India, and the Middle East.

    It is difficult for U.S. and Canadians to gain acceptance into traditional UK schools. Usually, most successful students are IB students from high school with good scores and an IB diploma.

    The Irish programs cateer more to Canadians and some Americans but they are expensive. If you're interested in these, look at the Atlantic Bridge program.

    nope

    St Chris rep. I think you have the wrong end of the stick there, as UK universities (the real ones ) such as Imperial are government schools, which favour students from the EU, but all students who are outside of the EU do have a chance of getting accepted, solong as they have tremendous grades, and a real motivation to practice medicine.

    If you are from outside of the EU, and have a GPA of below A grade, there is simply no point, as you are forgetting that, there maybe 5 places at the top universities set-aside for foreign students, and there are thousands of applications for each position.

    UK

    I have a 3.76 avg, which equates to about an A-, should I even try to apply? What about tests such as the MCAT? Do they even look at those? I have a lot of ecs, good recs, and publications. Can you think of a school where I would stand a chance? Thanks for the info.

    That is not quite true. before applying to other schools, I emailed and called many british medical schools. They said that they do not take any americans. they DO take canadians however. They said that they do not take students from countries who have adequate medical education systems. While there may be an occasional school that does take an occasional american, it is rare.

    Irish schools are different, they will take americans. If you wish to go to a UK chartered school, i highly recommend the atlantic bridge program.
