I agree with the above poster, read about these universities in Georgia VERY WELL before committing to anything. I nearly made the same mistake going to this university and thank god i accidentally stumbled across this reputable research report by a senior in Tbilisi funded by the American University’s Transnational Crime and Corruption Center:

Main findings
The higher education system of Georgia is highly corrupt due to the following deficiencies:
ß Extremely low quality of teaching and learning;
ß Poverty among a majority of teachers and professors;
ß Lack of technical equipment and facilities (including libraries);
ß Insufficient professional skills among trained specialists;
ß Disjunction between the higher educational system and labor market;
ß High level of unemployment among young professionals;
ß Low standards of moral values and norms of conduct;
ß Proliferation of corruption in all structural levels of the system;
ß Drawbacks in existing legislation on Education; and
ß An overwhelming amount corruption inside the institutions.


not trying to discourage you but you should be aware of these facts, hope your application goes well.

Unrelated but you may find interesting:

https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6vy9tv - Junior Doctor's Your Life In Their Hands S3 E1

At 39mins there's an italian medical graduate who starts his career at FY2 but he cannot perform a neurological examination. He gets told he will have to stop practicing and move down to FY1.

And he's an italian; not a british student who has done medicine abroad. Imagine how much someone's clinical education would suffer if they cannot speak the home language fluently.

that's shocking! thanks for sharing. This is why these students need to research where they're going not just listen to what the agnecies tell them about gerogia

I see these agencies are reporting you, because they endorse this university they try to silence the truth unfortunately so they can milk you out your hard earned dollars

I was considering new vision university and thank god I went to georgia to check it out. I went with an open mind because everything I saw online was negative about the whole university so I had a bad feeling. I took some days off work and flew there for 2 days to look around. I spoke with the admissions women and they seemed friendly but their english was bad. I tried to not judge since it is not the UK ofcourse, so their mother tongue wasn't going to be english. I asked how many UK students they have and she kept trying to avoid the question. It was very weird how secretive everything was. I kept asking questions but getting vague unsatisfactory answers and the more I asked the more she got passive aggressive with her answers.

Anyway, I tried my best to be open minded and I assumed maybe she was having a bad day. I met the clinical director who showed me around the university and the "new hospital" which is not even finished being built yet. They say the hospital will be built next month but I highly doubt that because it seemed like it needs at least a year of work but I'm not a builder, maybe they have superman on the building team. The university was started in 2014 so I don't know why the hospital is still being built since then...

The worst of all is that there was barely any diversity on the campus with mostly 95% indian students and a few nigerians. There were no other nationalities. I didn't feel like the university was for me because I wanted to go somewhere with more British students. I also didn't feel safe when one of the students told me three indian students were shot in the head last year infront of the campus! I really wanted to go to this university, but I had a terrible gut feeling about Gerogia altogether. It's not for me so I'll be checking out other international universities next month.
