    Eye opening

    Posted by Caroline Van Rijckeghem on September 17, 2019

    Dr. Jiva Dibah, who is trained as a medical doctor, gave us clear, informed personal advice that allowed us to change our preliminary list of schools to which we could confidently apply. We discussed 10-15 schools within a short time span, receiving information that was not easily available on the internet, or that we had simply completely overlooked, and insights about how attractive studying and working in different parts of the UK might be. Finding a medical school where you have a decent chance of being accepted is low even with outstanding grades and non-academics and decent UCATs, and Dr. Jiva will help you match your strengths to the school's application process and requirements. We will have a second meeting when the UCAT final scores are out. Thank you for the inspiration and guidance!

    Posted by Oday A. on September 5, 2019

    As a an international student we all know it’s really competitive to get into medicine in the UK. And we as international students are always worried regarding the ratio of applicants to places as well as how Universities select students. Most of such information I couldn’t find in the Universties websites. Thanks to Dr. Dibah not only for providing me with all of this of information but for showing me which universities I should apply to with my low UCAT score and being an international applicant.
