    What is the consequence of dropping out of the medical course? I have a friend who has switched to engineering after one semester of medicine. If in the future, after graduation, would these students be considered for readmission to medicine in the UK or elsewhere?

    They could apply for graduate entry like anyone else who wanted to, but the fact that they had once had a medical school place and had left would be questioned.

    I imagine it all depends on the circumstances. If someone dropped out of medical school for a geniune reason (illness etc) then I am sure there would be no problems with re-applying. However, if it was because of the workload etc, there will obviously be problems.
