Hey,
Does anyone have any insights to RCSI vs UCD for GEM? Teaching? Facilities? Placement opportunities? 
I'm an EU student.
Any help is appreciated.

As a former UCD student, from what I've heard.....UCD is definitely the way to go!

Thanks! Were you in GEM or a different program?

GEM. I was talking to someone in the course last week, they were telling me that the exam set up is worse (you've to do finals in the summer of third year in each module whereas in UCD they're at the end of your module and thats it), no paeds or GP lectures, no streamed obs/gynae lectures to peripherals and it's 2,000 extra per year! Now I could be wrong but that's what I was told.
