exchanges information evening
Interested in finding out about the unique experiences other outgoings in your city had? How are the applications reviewed? Do you want be become a contact person for an incoming student in July 2019, and get extra points for your application?
Be sure to keep a look out for the exchanges information evening usually organised by the Local Exchange Officer (LEOs) at your university when applications open. You will get information on the exchanges and on many other topics and questions during this event. You might also get the opportunity to interact with previous outgoings from your university!
Summer 2017 marked our very first SCOPE exchanges in Ireland, where we sent out 15 students to 9 countries! We are pleased to receive lots of feedback from our outgoing students, as this is very helpful for interested medical students to get country-specific information. You can find some of these unique experiences here.
You will face diverse cultures and ways of thinking, especially in the medical field, when doing an exchange outside of Europe. The locals may have different expectations of you, and share a different healthcare system. Such differences are not necessarily easy to understand and adapt to.
In order to prepare you better for the exchange, we are working to offer you a Pre-Departure Training that will take place on a national level in April 2019. This will also be an excellent opportunity for you to link up with other selected students going to the same country as you. More details will follow closer to the date.
