Internationally-Recognised Irish Medical Education Delivered Transnationally - Students of RUMC receive the best of both worlds: the highest quality biomedical science training and pre-clinical training delivered in Dublin (attending either RCSI or UCD) followed by an outstanding clinical training programme in Penang.
The RCSI and UCD curriculum will set you apart as being a clinically distinguished graduate, competent and confident to begin the challenging houseman years in Malaysia or the world. As a Foreign University Branch Campus student, you and your RUMC classmates will be fully immersed with the Irish and international students throughout the RCSI and UCD duration of the course. When you transfer back to Penang, you do so with your cohort and friends that you have studied with in Dublin. This is unlike some other cross-border medicine programmes where you travel overseas by yourself which can make adapting to life overseas much more challenging.
