Hey guys. Long post aHead. Not sure if it’s the right thread but I figured u guys would be the most appropriate to help.

I am an international, non EU student who just got a conditional offer for Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) for 2021 entry in undergraduate medicine. However, in the offer, and from some conversation with alumini, I discovered that it’s quite difficult for international students to get internship opportunities at Ireland.

Can someone guide me to really understand how difficult it is for Ireland internship for medicine as international student? I am not able to find any statistics of how many international reservations there are or even possible for us to get internship at all
If I I am unable to get internship at Ireland after finishing my undergraduate, I plan to try to enter UK or USA and try to work there or try for internship there (foundation year in Uk not sure about USA) Does anyone know much about the process and how difficult it will be? By difficulty I mean how much prep will I need, and how much is expected of me
Last but definitely not least, my main priority was to apply for UK medicine, but unfortunately, I was unsuccessful this year (poor interview performance, average UCAT and BMAT results as international student). I wanted to ask you guys do I reject the offer from ireland and instead try for UCLan or Buckingham and if I fail there too, try for gap year next year? I know competition is only gonna get tougher, especially as international student , and am quite unsure how much I can really improve in 2 months (have ib board exams until end of may)
I gotta make a decision by next 2.weeks. Any advice, websites, anecdotes anything will be really helpful. Thank you for reading this.
Hey there! Sorry I know this doesn’t answer your question but would you be able to explain to me how your interview with Trinity went please?

Hi, a big congrats on TCD's conditional offer. What are the conditions to be in? I understand that getting into med is super competitive in UK and Ireland. So, I feel that you should seriously consider accepting TCD and worry about intern later. You know what? You may not even get a place next year if you let this whizzes by. Loads of people out there waiting for offer. All the best!

Hi first year med student in trinity, I don’t know too much about this but I’ve heard that intern jobs can be quite difficult because they prioritise Irish and EU students over internationals so a lot of international students graduate, then do their internship back home. Sorry couldn’t be more helpful

Tough decision but have u applied elsewhere? When is your deadline to accept the conditional offer? Do u also have other offers? But if internship is your major concern, then i am afraid u may need to start looking out for other alternatives.

Do you thinkTrinity have given out most of their offers?

Applied in feb but I haven’t heard anything back. Maybe no news is bad news.

They don’t give offers like UCAS. You’ll only hear if you’ve got a place after the results are released in August. They’ll fill their places based on the results of the people who have applied. Generally this follows roughly the same pattern as previous years but the points can vary a bit.

What about if you have your results when you apply?
When do you get your results?

When you applied through CAO you should send them proof of your results. The places still aren’t offered until everyone’s results are in.

Many thanks,

Take care

I did send all documents, references and translated grades through CAO.
How do they deal with accommodation, visas, paper work etc if they don’t give offers out until mid August.

I can’t sort anything out this end until such time I know if I have been successful.
I can’t give up my flat until I know, at least four weeks notice.

Crossing my fingers I hear something soon.

Ok, so you’re not an EU/UK applicant. I’m not sure how international applications work. Perhaps check with TCD’s academic registry.

I think you can make an application for accommodation at TCD now, check the accommodation section of their website. First years generally apply for Trinity Hall. You’ll be offered a provisional place in accommodation which will be confirmed with your place on the course.

Good idea,
Thanks for your reply. I am an eu applicant, I am studying in France at the moment.

Hi! UK student here.
Does anyone know anything about maintenance loans for Irish unis. I've heard that UK students can't get loans, is this true? I've got an Irish passport if that helps.

I know Northern Irish students can apply for maintenance loans through NISF, perhaps check with SFE if that’s your finance organisation. I don’t think you can apply for maintenance through the Irish organisations though, even with an Irish passport.
