The Penang Medical College Pre- Departure Orientation has become more exciting in recent years.

After increased applications for the 2017 edition of the RCSI – UCD Dublin Scholarship, the admissions panel have decided on the final 6 recipients of the scholarship.

Announcements will be made on Sunday, 20 August in Kuala Lumpur. The Irish Ambassador to Malaysia, His Excellency Mr Eamon Hickey who will grace the event will be presenting the award.

Scholarship submissions were marked and shortlisted on the quality of English, adhering to instructions and originality and insight, and demonstration of maturity and strength in the self-reflection and comment within the submission. Applicants were also reviewed on their character references,  inability to pursue medicine without a scholarship and ability to cover the living expenses in Dublin and Penang.

A panel consisting representatives of RCSI, UCD and PMC interviewed candidates in July, while the final decisions are also depended on the applicant’s final pre-university examination results.

All students will begin with their 2.5 years of pre-clinical studies at either the RCSI or UCD in Dublin.

Stay tuned.
