I’m currently an international freshmen undergrad student at NYU Abu Dhabi.
For some context:I have a full scholarship here, and NYUAD is a very prestigious school with a ~ 2% acceptance rate.
However, I’m not happy here and I want to transfer.
I know 100% for sure that I want to do medicine and become a physician (most preferably in the US, if not Australia), and after coming here it has become clear that international students usually don’t (more like can’t) go to US med schools and rather go to med schools elsewhere in the world, like Singapore.
I feel like it’s not worth it to work my butt off this liberal arts college school where the focus isn’t even on STEM, so I was thinking about applying to and going to UNSW as a first year student with the medicine program that would give me an MD after 6 years.
However, I don’t know much about UNSW in general.
How is it regarded in Australia?
With a UNSW MD, would I be able to intern/ work at a good hospital in cities of Australia even as an international student?
Would I be able intern in the US after getting a MD in UNSW?
Or is it better to just stay in NYUAD and get a MD in med schools elsewhere, even if that takes 2 years longer + more work?
Any advice would be appreciated!!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.
