Over a dozen Irish students accepted to study Medicine in Poland before the Leaving Cert
At least 16 Irish students secured their places at medical schools in Bydgoszcz and Wroclaw, Poland before even sitting the Leaving Cert and may join over dozens already studying in Poland.
The bright 16 have already been issued conditional offers from medical and veterinary universities after a successful interviews in Dublin last month. If they pass their Leaving Certificates, they will be joining their Irish and British folks in Bydgoszcz, Poznan and Wroclaw in September. They are excited and calm at the same time: excited about the opportunity to study abroad in the heart of Europe and calm because of less Leaving Cert (together with HPAT) pressure. Realistic entry requirements made that possible.
Most of them visited 8th largest city in Poland during St. Patrick’s weekend and saw the state of the art facilities at Collegium Medicum. They also had an opportunity to meet current Irish students who shared their positive experience from studying at Ireland’s favourite Polish medical university. Both the university and city authorities supported the Irish students and Medical Poland in organising St. Patrick’s parade in Bydgoszcz this year – for the first time in Poland!
Not only Irish looking to become doctors head to Poland. Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences will also be welcoming at least 5 new Irish and British in September. The Veterinary programme starts a few weeks earlier to make sure all students are on the same page, especially as far as physics is concerned. High level and very good quality of Polish education system at secondary and higher levels causes the university to offer additional pre-study course in this subject.
Medical Poland working with the most dynamic Polish medical universities can see a huge increase in the number of applications this year. They are all public institutions generously supported by European and Polish institutions becoming highly competitive and equipped in the newest medical technologies.
