    Hi all,

    I'm planning to apply for Clinical MD in general internal medicine course at the university of Buckingham..

    I have checked around the course and it looks pretty exciting and good for international student like me..

    I wanna see the students prospective about the university, and the course particularly, as i believe students can tell me better about the course than the university it self.

    1. Please if any student who is doing the Graduate Medicine course please reply here and let all the people benefit from your experience ,or contact me directly and help me get a better picture about the course and the university.

    2.If you are a student who have applied for the course let us know as well, we wanna learn about the reasons that made your decision


    also for students who are doing any course, your general experience at the university will be appreciated ...


    THANK YOU

    Hi following that reply i enquired them regarding the Medical Council Of India recognition. (After the course, MCI recognition is a must to practice here in India). And they replied.. see below again "control v"

    "we have had several past students gain official recognition from the MCI for the MD course. Sometime late last year this stopped and we were later told, during a meeting that they were due to update their official list. This list was created back in 2004, so before the MD existed hence why were not on it. We have been told by MCI officials that the list will be revised and completed by March 2016 and are confident that we will feature on this list. Once the MCI are satisfied with the paperwork we have sent them, then the problem should be resolved. We hope for a positive outcome very soon."

    Yes we are aware, being private university doesn't make it any less better than other universities in UK. and i'm an international student so the price i have to pay for government funded university or private university is still the same, the case is different for national students.Furthermore the clinical MD course is rare to be found in any other university, that is if you want to do medical training in the UK you have to pass PLAB first which for me is wasting time because i don't want to work in the UK then why take their license exam?!

    overall i think that this course is the main reason i chose Buckingham , and them being private university doesn't matter for me because i will still be paying the same

    I think you've misunderstood - most unis are NOT private - this uni is different to virtually all others in England. How will you get there? Transport is poor ...
