In this week’s University Update, we congratulate Jasleen, who has received an offer from the prestigious joint Doctor of Medicine Programme - a collaboration between Srinakharinwirot University, Thailand and the University of Nottingham in the UK. Students begin by studying for a Bachelor of Medical Science at the University of Nottingham and then return to Thailand to complete three years of clinical studies in the Thai Doctor of Medicine program, graduating with a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from Srinakharinwirot University.
Jasleen (on the right) will be the third member of her family to graduate from St Andrews and then study overseas, after Simran (Class of 2016) and their brother Jaswin (Class of 2018). After Graduation, Simran studied for a BA in Psychology at the University of British Columbia, Canada. She is now working in our Learning Support Department with our English++ students and, later this year, will begin studying for a Masters of Counselling at Monash University, Australia, where Jaswin is currently studying Information Technology and Business. You can read more about Simran’s journey from St Andrews to UBC, back to St Andrews and then to Monash here.
So far this year, our Year 13 students have received 94 offers and acceptances from 60 different universities in 9 different countries: Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Thailand, the UK and the US.
