    I'm not sure if this should go here but

    I'm a non-EU citizen but know that I want to study in London if I can't get into a medical school in HK. So I wanted to ask the pros/cons of the University of London colleges in regards to medicine and admission difficulty?
    I'd like to know about KCL, UCL, ICL, Queen Mary or your suggestions!

    You get to apply to four medical schools in an application, so you could apply to all four of those. They'll each have different emphases as to what they look at when you apply, and they may have subtly (or less subtly) different teaching styles in the form of lots of lectures vs. more PBL (problem-based learning).

    It isn't but given OP, and many others in fact, often do not include SGUL I imagine their primary goal is central London as opposed to a University of London. That is to say, they are focused on the location more so than the institution.

    Thank You! I do imagine I'd apply to two/three only though, as my school would advise a safety option given the competitiveness of those institutions, and I completely agree with that.

    I'll read up on them and hopefully visit them this summer!

    And yes, I don't really mind if they're a part of UoL anymore, I guess I should've worded the OP better.

    I'm not sure I'd assume competition is any higher/it's any harder to get in to any of the London med schools than elsewhere without some kind of evidence. You might need to look at statistics specifically pertaining to success rates of international applicants.
