This means that if you’re interested in multiple Caribbean Medical Schools, you’ll have to apply separately each time.
Direct applications usually consist of:
When you apply to American University of Antigua College of Medicine, the university will decide which of its three track options are the most suitable for you, depending on your academic credentials and experience. You’ll apply directly, via their website. Once your complete application has been received, you’ll be scheduled for an interview and you’ll get a decision usually around three weeks after.
If you’re interested in joining one of AUA’s upcoming classes, you can apply or submit your AMCAS application right from their website.
When applying, AUA’s standard track has three options for students. AUA will determine which option is most appropriate for the entering student based on the academic credentials and success the student brings with him/her to the university.
Applying students have the following options:
In addition, UK students can participate in AUA’s International Track. Students applying via this track have the following options:
Some Caribbean Medical Schools have rolling admissions and welcome a new intake at two or more points of the year. For example, some allow students to start their programmes in September, January and May. Others have one intake per year and usually start in August.
American University of Antigua College of Medicine has rolling admissions and two start dates: February and August. This means AUA doesn’t have firm application deadlines, but instead encourages applications as early as possible to avoid the chance of getting waitlisted.
Acceptance at Caribbean Medical Schools tends to be higher than in the UK or US – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t competitive. You still need a really strong application to get shortlisted.
You need to have strong transcripts from your degree (or school grades if you’re going for the Premed pathway). You also need to craft a compelling Personal Statement that really gets across your motivation for studying Medicine. And you need a strong CV that shows your commitment to Medicine in the form of volunteering work or other placements.
Your letters of recommendation are also extremely powerful when you’re applying to a Caribbean university. You’re required to send two, which gives you the chance to include some glowing words of praise from a previous professor and something to show you have real-world, professional experience.
