    Hi
    I'm a 4th year MBBS student from Myanmar. I want to study in UK for PG studies. I don't know how things work there and what I should prepare. I'm doing IELTS right now. Any advice for me?

    What type of PG studies are you considering?

    Masters? PhD? What subject?

    Or do you mean specialist training? If your MBBS, qualifies you to come here, I understand you would need to complete the foundation program before starting specialist training.

    Have you looked at the GMC website?

    Nope. I haven't looked at the website yet. I'm interested in OBG. I wonder what kind of degrees I can get here. I want to work and settle in UK. What should I do and what should I prepare before coming there?

    I'm still not quite sure if you are asking about stand alone academic qualifications to help you with your career?

    Or how to get an Obs & Gyne training post?

    Sorry.


    To get a training post, you will most probably need to get on the UK doctors foundation programme, then apply for specialist training.

    If your after just a PG course to help you with your career, you will probably need search through the uni web sites. If you are particularly interested in Obs and Gyne, the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG) may be able to advise you.

    However if you want to practice here, I believe the two routes are to
    a) get a place on the Foundation Programme
    b) train overseas, and then seek a transfer, once holding recognised pg qualifications... (Not so easy)

    You can do the MRCOG(UK): Member of Royal College of Obstetrics & Gynecology (UK).
