Over twenty students have already been accepted to prestigious Polish medical colleges this year before the Leaving Cert has even finished. Each year more school leavers are looking to add options for their future studies.

The Leaving Cert exams finish on until Friday, 24th June, and every year they cause stress to students and their parents, especially to those who aspire to become doctors, pharmacists or vets. Medical programmes are extremely competitive and difficult to get into. Limited number of places at home at RCS, TCD or UCD increase pressure on students to achieve excellent results at both the Leaving Cert and HPAT exam.

Many European countries, including Poland, do not have that extra barrier. Despite their excellent education systems, they offer more accessible entry criteria for applicants. This is one of the reasons why Medical Poland has seen a surge in interest and applications so far this year.

Professor Arkadiusz Jawien, a vascular surgeon and a Head of English Division at Medical Poland is expected to visit Dublin this summer to select the Irish students for one of the top Polish medical universities.

“We are preparing for 40 new Irish students this year. That means over three times more than the last year. Realistic entry requirements are not only reason behind Poland becoming so popular,” he explained.

At Poland’s prestigious medical schools, entry requirements are not solely based on the Irish grading system but on the strength of character and passion to study. That is why Medical Poland runs a number of information events to introduce Irish students to Polish medical colleges. A special event for accepted students and those interested in studying in Poland takes place just after the Leaving Cert exams finish, on 25th June at 9.15am in a Polish school based in St Declan’s College on Ratoath Road in Dublin 7.
