If you have students with the ambition to study medicine, good for them!
Being a doctor can be a very rewarding career. There is arguably no better job for someone to help others on a daily basis, and to really feel that their work is making a positive impact.
But the path to practising medicine is long and difficult, requiring immense dedication and tenacity.
Students who choose to embark on this career will have to commit to a more complex university application process, and then be facing at least six (and usually many more) years in education.
What’s more, if they are studying medicine internationally, the route they take will depend on which country they choose. Each country has its own specific requirements, and it can be hard for a student to decide which destination is the best way for them.
In this post, we’ll go into more detail on studying medicine - including what the degree entails, the different international pathways, and how students can succeed in the application process.
