    Any UK or Irish Univ that only look at CV ?

    Advertisements



    Hi,

    I am from Canada and I have a degree in engineering. I have the EU citizenhip since I was born and grow up in France. I have also done a lot of volunteering in Canada (SIDA, food center, cancer..) and outside (India, Lebanon).

    Is there any Irish or UK Univ that would look at my CV without make me pass an entrance exam, and that is recognized in the EU ? Or anywhere else in Europe ?

    Thanks a lot,

    Enrike

    What exactly is the problem with entrance exams lately?

    Ireland is a part of the EU. All of their medical schools offer an EU diploma. The 4 year programs will require MCAT or UKCAT. The 5 and 6 year programs probably will not. Talk with the admissions people at Medicine, Dentistry, and Physiotherapy Education - AtlanticBridge.com and ask them for sure, but for crying out loud, do NOT act like you are afraid of an admissions test. That will make you look like a crappy (or perhaps worse, a lazy) student.

    You have an engineering degree from Canada and the extracurriculars, it sounds like. Assuming you have the necessary science classes complete, and they do not want any other tests from you, that should cover the early bases.

    Almost all UK universities require UKCAT or BMAT. UKCAT is not difficult to write its not like the MCAT, you don't need to study much at all. 2 weeks hardcore prep will probably do.

    I don't think there is in Ireland at least.

    For undergraduate entry you are required to sit the HPAT exam, even if you wish to take a mature entry route. The GAMSAT exam is required for graduate entry medicine.

    ...unless you are a North American graduate entry candidate, in which case the MCAT is accepted (according to Atlantic Bridge, who processes the applications for Irish medical schools).
