Hi All,
Looking to apply to ScotGEM because I have dual nationality but last time (in undergrad applications) I qualified as a Home/EU student (reduced fees) in the questionnaire. Does anyone know if that carries on or if I’ll have to fill it all out again? (My brothers were classed as Uk so I don’t want to only apply to Scotland if the fees aren’t an incentive).

Also, I wanted to confirm that grads from ScotGEM can practice in the Uk after finishing the course?
Thanks for your help

I got mine today too. I haven't seen much activity online regarding 2020 applications so i'm hoping not many people applied I wonder if the questionnaire is sent to every applicant without screening or was there some degree of screening with questionnaires being sent to probable interview candidates?

The rural placement ( I'm from the west coast of Ireland) and the emphasis on general practice. Plus its significantly cheaper than Ireland's GEM programs.

Hello ScotGEM applicants. I hope that you are all fairing well.

A spreadsheet is ready for input once interviews start coming out:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...gid=2009272060

I'm sure that you may or may not have seen a similar one for 2019. I hope that it was of use to you, if you did see it, and hopefully you can admire the wealth of knowledge accumulated from it that helped out this cohort figure out where to apply.
I know that ScotGEM asks a lot from you guys to do, so if I missed something out, got something wrong or need to add something in, feel free to message me or try it yourself. I don't mind.
Any mistakes are easily correctable with the undo button.

Wish you all good luck throughout the process.

I'm from London and have also applied for ScotGEM. I was wondering if anyone is aware of around when the interview are for the 2020 entry. From what I've gathered it seems that the 2018 entry was in Dec and 2019 in Feb, but I cant find anything for 2020.
Thanks
