    Thanks
    1. Postgraduate training works the same way as locals.
    2. After graduation, 2 years of internship (FY1,FY2), then you can apply for GP training positions, which typically takes 3-4 years.
    3. Most internationals will do their FY1/2 here (There is no separate track for internationals). Some will leave after graduation/foundation because training works differently in different countries. I think you can use your working visa (Post-study work) until CT1 (first year of specialist training) before NHS has to sponsor you for a proper working visa (They changed the system recently so not sure how it is going to be done in near future).

    hope this helps.

    Hey,

    Does anyone know if Birmingham Medical school is international friendly. I was going to apply to Manchester, but i heard they dont take students that have access to adequate medcal school programs. I am from California. I just wanted t know if Birmingham followed that rule as well.

    Good UKCAT score

    I'm applying from Toronto, Canada, and I took my UKCAT yesterday. I want to know if my score is good enough to apply to: King's, St. Andrews, Liverpool, and Leicester.

    Scores are:
    VR: 600
    QR: 720
    AR: 600
    DA: 610

    Overall: 2530, Average: around 635.

    My marks are ok: overall average of 92 with most of my marks in the low 90's. I have quite a bit of volunteer experience, especially in a healthcare environment, and this summer I am going to India to help build a school and teach English.

    If you could please let me know if I have a shot at these schools, that would be great.

    Thanks,
    bonkyky

    Hi, Johnny411.

    Yes, if you take a look at Medschoolsonline - Medical Course Guide for School Leavers - Standard Courses, Birmingham medical school offers 40 places for international students, which is the most in the United Kingdom. I think, personally, it's a very good choice for international. I'm considering to apply there as well!

    Good luck with everything,

    Keele uni is pretty int'l friendly. They accept about 10 students (including EU) and they don't look so much at the UKCAT.
