Nice to meet you. Sorry for replying after a while, I didn't notice the post and I haven't been on for few days. First of all, I believe UCC's deadline is soon, end of March, so you need to get a move on that. As for the others, TCD's deadline passed and the other three not so sure. The problem is I've applied through the North Atlantic Bridge program, an agency in the US for North American students. As I don't know where you're from, I can't tell you for sure how or through who, and more importantly, by when you should apply (Assuming entry in 2012). Therefore, you should contact the unis and seek advice from them. I've applied to TCD directly and UCD, NUIG and RCSI through the agency I mentioned above.
As for reputation and such, any medical degree from a respectable country is accepted anywhere in the world, so don't worry much about that. Ireland is also an English speaking country, so language barriers shouldn't be an issue. As for rankings: TCD is ranked 69th in medicine WORLDWIDE, so I guess that's enough reputation for anyone. UCD is 124th in med worldwide. These two I found some info about on the QS site, I believe. TCD is first in Ireland overall (Not med, merely overall as a uni in Ireland, out of around 10-15 unis.), UCD is ranked 4th, NUIG 6th and RCSI 10th. I hope this info helps you, and if you need any more information please don't hesitate to send me a private message (I can get email notifications on PMs). Hope your applications go well. TC.
international applicant here (on the dundee tread too!). I was thinking of applying to Ireland (applications still open in my country) and I was hoping for some advice from you.
What is the difference in terms of reputation, curriculum etc. between TCD, UCD, NUIG and UCC? I'm really confused and information is hard to come by. Thanks alot...I hope you can reply soon! and lastly good luck for your UK app!
