Hey there ! Did you try sending a mail to the uni ? I’m only aware of the fact that they’re still open since the Apply button shows so 😅.

I got accepted to the 6 year program but i’m still not sure if I’m going for the seat as I don’t really have much info about the bahrain campus , it would be lovely if present students talk about it

I didn't get much luck finding info on this platform but I tried places like LinkedIn where they diligently replied, some seniors, and I'm grateful for it. You could try some similar options. Regardless of accepting the seat, congrats on your offer !!

Hey
Just relax and try to be yourself, think of yourself as an item in a shop that have to be sold and at the same time the medical school is tryna sell their program to you aswell, again just relax and be yourself.

The seniors were supportive in their reply, it reassured me. They talked about how the uni works and how friendly it is as an international uni. I spoke to a 1st year student as well as an alumni and from the first year I got an idea on the assessments ( two summatives-one at the end of each semester, mcqs, 6 mark questions just like in A levels , seminars etc.) The performance is evaluated and graded in Dublin, that sounds cool to me. The portion is very dense compared to A levels ( ofc we know that bit now, don't we ? In any case not my curriculum so not too aware ) but the teachers in general are very helpful. Assignments are not much except for clinical skills sessions which again isn't very time-consuming I'm told. The uni is very lecture-based or expect you to keep up on lectures and will give you a warning if you are late to class, and that will affect your attending the exams. If you have less than 50% attendance you can't write the exam that semester and would have to write it in the beginning of the next, which obviously makes things difficult. And there's the concept of supplementary exams which I'm not much aware of. The passed-out student is currently working as an intern but at the moment such places are not offered to internationals. He was overall pleased with his experience here. Scholarship is awarded to only 2 students of a particular year while enrolling usually, yes very limited. Although this time I heard 4 people received. Instead of dissection or prosection there's the use of 3D anatomage tables to study anatomy which doesn't put the students at a disadvantage however. There are many who have won awards and shown their excellence ( the use of cadavers is considered unethical here ). The Career's Office I believe is excellent and guides you in choosing the country you wish to practice in, which residency you'd like to get matched into and the specific licensing exams you'd have to write accordingly.

Yes, this is basically every detail noted from them.

You're welcome and thank you, the interview went well.

Hey man thanks for the reply , i have already talked to many people in the uni and many doctors here in the uae and they complemented rcsi mub and rcsi in general and that reassured me too, but only 2 students receive a scholarship per batch?!!! Out of like 270 students from all the three medical programs? Is it a 100% scholarship or what , that you’re talking about?

Hey dude no prob. It covers only 1/3rd of the fees lol. Yes I was surprised too. Well idk how it works in the other two medical programs tbh. It might vary.
