4 year (GEP) will other Irish schools follow?

    Hey Guys,

    So this year was the first year RCSI introduced the 4 year GEP program.
    Do you think that next year the other Irish schools (UCD,UCC,Trinity,NUIG) will follow the lead?

    They're trying. UCC applied this year to introduce a four-year grad entry program (to start next year) but lost their bid. Limerick will instead be getting a new med school with only the grad entry program offered (50 seats, I believe). It's probably safe to say that all the Irish schools will want a grad entry program eventually, especially if it means more funding for more seats (adding to the existing 5-year programs).

    Just an FYI...

    Other than RCSI, I doubt the Medical Schools will offer the 4 year course to non-EU students.

    UCC wanted to - maybe that is why their bid for seats was not successful.Their plan was to put all the North American degree carrying students into the 4 year program and keep the 5 year spots for the Irish leaving cert grads. This was part of a group bid that included Trinity. Sadly, not to be this year. Cheers,
