Medical School in Scotland
I am a senior in High School in the United States, and I want to study to become a psychiatrist. I will have enough credit hours from concurrent enrollment to start college next year as a junior, if I go to a state school that will accept the credits. I was wondering if I should just start over and go to Scotland as a freshman and go through medical school for five years, which would be expensive, or get a bachelors degree and then apply for graduate/medical school in Scotland (Either the University of Edinburgh or the University of Glasgow). Would it still be five years long, even if I already completed a bachelors, or would it take less time? I would like to do the latter because if it takes less time, it would be less expensive, and there are more scholarship opportunities for graduate students, but I really don't know if that's how it works. I tried looking for the information on the two universities' websites, but it wasn't very helpful.
