IUMC Study Medicine and Dentistry in Ireland 2021

Why do international students continue to choose Ireland?

There are many reasons why students from all over the world come to study in Ireland. Ireland has always had a reputation for producing excellent clinicians, with Irish-trained doctors and dentists holding leading positions in the world’s top medical institutes. Away from the classroom, it’s also a great place for students! Almost 40% of the population of Ireland is under the age of 40, and Dublin, Cork and Galway are all vibrant cosmopolitan cities with great restaurants, cafes and nightlife.

But don’t take our word for it! Our student’s are the greatest champions for spreading the message of why choosing to study in Ireland was such a great decision, so we’ll let them take over from here!

Charles, Trinity College Dublin

Charles from Vietnam outlines the benefits of choosing Ireland for his dentistry studies.
Trinity College Dublin is one of Europe’s oldest universities. The School, through its educational programmes, strives to be innovative, research-driven and interdisciplinary and today, it is an international leader in biomedical research and education.

William, NUI Galway

William from Singapore is one of many international students attaining a world-class education at National University of Ireland, Galway School of Medicine
National University of Ireland, Galway was established in 1845 and is one of Ireland’s foremost centres of academic excellence. With over 17,000 students in total attending NUI Galway, and a very international student population, NUI Galway has an excellent reputation for the quality of its teaching and research in Medicine. 

Maria, University College Cork

Maria from Egypt explains why she is so happy that she chose to study at University College Cork.
Founded in 1845, University College Cork (UCC) has a long history in medical education and combines a rich tradition of teaching, research and scholarship. Today, almost 3000 international students from over 100 countries attend the University.

Suraya, University College Dublin

Suraya from Malaysia shares her experiences of studying at University College Dublin.
From your first day in the dissection lab to the start of your clinical training, student life at UCD Medicine is a stimulating, diverse and vibrant experience. When you choose Medicine at UCD, you choose early patient contact, a world-class curriculum and an unrivalled calendar of social and extra-curricular activities.

I also wanted to let you know about a brand-new International Summer School for students looking to start their undergraduate degrees in 2022. Across the whole programme, we have 5 subject streams on offer:

  • Robotics Engineering
  • Education
  • Biosciences
  • Pharmacy & Pharmacology
  • Business & Management (excluding Accounting & Finance).

The programme is virtual and free of charge and is open to all students who are academically able to study at Bath in their chosen subject. All students must also be able to show evidence of their English proficiency with an IELTS 5.5 overall or an equivalent qualification. If a student completes the International Summer School, including the sessions and activities that are included, they will be guaranteed to receive an offer for a place to study at Bath. This is on the condition that they meet the academic requirements necessary, a UCAS application is submitted by the UCAS equal consideration deadline and the subject stream they undertook as part of the International Summer School is for the degree they apply for.

I have attached more details and the link below – I would appreciate it if you are able to share this with any students that this may be of interest to. The deadline to apply is the 20th June and application outcomes will be communicated by 6th July.

We’re very keen to support your students, so please do let me know if I can be of assistance at all.

Rochester Pre-College Online Program

University of Rochester online courses provide the advantage of live mentorship

(please share with your high school students)

 

“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

So says Isaac Newton.

In this spirit, University of Rochester has designed three online courses that enable high schoolers to explore their passions before college. All courses offer live, online mentorship to guide students along the way. Mentors are themselves students with experience in the subjects covered by the courses. They enrich the learning process by adding first-hand experience and can answer questions about majors and careers in the field. They also brainstorm with students and assist with assignments.

All of our courses are flexible, featuring dynamic, online videos led by professors and live sessions with mentors, so students can study anytime, anywhere, at their own pace.

Please share this link with your students.

Meet some of our University of Rochester mentors:

Michael Healey, Rochester Graduate class of 2016.

Michael Healey, Rochester Graduate class of 2016.

Every Student Should Complete a FAFSA
October 1 . . . does anyone know why this date is important?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (or FAFSA) opened October 1 to all current high school seniors applying to college.
So, what should you do? Apply!
Even if you and your family don’t think you will qualify for need-based financial aid, covering your bases by applying is a helpful step to take. If you decide you want or need to take out a student loan, or your parents choose to borrow through the Parent Plus loan program, you will need to have completed the FAFSA.
A few important notes about applying for financial aid:
You might qualify for federal, state or institutional grants, loans or work study programs. Don’t miss out on these opportunities to receive financial assistance that may allow you to make your college dreams a reality!

Eight Myths about Choosing the Right College
For more than two decades, the Colleges That Change Lives member-schools have worked together to support students in the college search process. And every year, we meet students and families who are hesitant to consider smaller, lesser-known, liberal arts and sciences schools. More often than not, their concerns fall into a broad category of “commonly held myths” that are shared by well-meaning but usually uninformed sources. Here are the top eight myths – and the facts students and families have discovered along the way. We hope you find this information useful in your college search!
MISPERCEPTION: A good college needs to have more students than your high school.
MISPERCEPTION: Employers and graduate schools won’t be seriously interested in a graduate from a school they haven’t heard of before. A degree from a name-brand institution means more to employers and graduate schools, and attending a well-known school puts students ahead of the curve and guarantees them successful, meaningful lives.
MISPERCEPTION: Large research-based and Ivy League schools have better course selection, and they can attract more talented faculty members.
MISPERCEPTION: Staying close to home is a good idea because it saves money, and following high school friends makes the transition to college easier.
MISPERCEPTION: Strong students in the top ranks of their high school class with high test scores will waste their potential at any school outside the Ivy League. They deserve to learn with other motivated achievers.
MISPERCEPTION: It’s impossible to get into a good college without great test scores, top grades, perfect recommendations, and a whole list of activities. Being homeschooled or having a different learning style can be a major obstacle.
MISPERCEPTION: If you’re serious about your future career, it’s pointless to take classes in other disciplines. It’s better to focus on one field and become an expert than to know a little about a lot of useless subjects.
Director’s Corner
Isn’t it ironic that experts have been calling for “less screen time” for a decade, and here we are spending more time than ever on our screens?
Seriously, it’s easy to say, “Who wants more Zoom time?” But, 2020 has made it extraordinarily difficult for admission officers to travel to meet students as well as for families to visit college campuses. The result is a huge gap in the knowledge-gathering stage of the college admissions process today.
So, we Zoom. And we Google Meet. And sometimes, we even use our phones as phones and just talk. For better or worse, these methods are now essential to the college admissions process today.
