Hello, I’m studying applied science level 3 right now and will finish in a few months to go to university. If I choose to study biomedical science at uni, after the course can I go to PA (Physician assistant) school in America to become a PA? Or do I need other qualifications to progress onto PA school internationally? 😁

No one can predict the future!

I think you would have problems:

- I’d be nervous that the US PA course wouldn’t qualify you to work in the U.K. it could cost in the region of $150k and upwards so you would really need to earn US pay rates to pay off such an amount.

- many (all?) of the courses require certain undergrad courses to have been taken at US or Canadian universities. It can be a real problem for those with degrees from other countries.

Perhaps look at courses here and see if they might give good opportunities to travel?

Should add - if you are interested in working in other countries it’s worth keeping an eye on their immigration requirements as these change all the time so you might find a new opportunity.
