Hi guys,

Does anyone know which medical schools in the UK are better for students, who are applying from outside the UK and EU?

Don't think there are any really, for several reasons:

1) The fees will be international, so in the ball-park of £20,000 or more each year
2) By UK law, Universities for Medicine aren't allowed to accept more than 7.5% of the cohort as international students
3) All will have the same english language requirements for medicine-which will be pretty high, considering the nature of the profession you could enter subsequently

If there is a "better one", and people know about it (i heard nothing), it will be more competitive to get in there anyway, potentially.

In terms of working in the UK, medical school does not form part of the selection criteria. The general advice is to go for a course you will enjoy and that you can make a competitive application for.

In terms of working elsewhere it becomes more debatable and dependent on country.

The competitiveness and tuition fees will vary by uni. Oxford, for instance, has an acceptance rate of something like 1% for internationals.

Maybe at the cheapest end, though i don't think so tbh. Around £150,000 edit: in total, is a more realistic low end estimate. Cambridge is up to £350,000.

True. However, they've announced plans to change this as part of the expanding med schools program. International fees will probably also increase.

Are you for real???

Exeter=£29,500 (http://www.exeter.ac.uk/undergraduat...l/livingcosts/)

Cambridge=£50,000 (http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.a...-students/fees). About 1/7th of what you said

Plymouth=£18,900 to 35,000 (https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/courses/u...lor-of-surgery)

Did you misread my quote as for the whole course? I was talking annual fees

Obviously I meant in total.

Just point out your estimate was too low.

£19950 for 2 years
£37695 for 3 years

= £152,985

Assuming no intercalation, no hidden fees, and excluding living and course costs.

Ah yes, the cheap first year and the additional costs in later years.
