The Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) on Tuesday concluded interviews and admission tests for students who will be obtaining scholarships to study abroad for the academic year 2018-19 in specialties such as medicine, nursing, dentistry and pharmacy.
Selected students will join 5 educational institutions: the University of Malta, University of St Andrews of Britain, the Auckland and Otago Universities of New Zealand and the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland, Bahrain Branch.
Students’ individual interviews are created to figure out the degree of scientific readiness, the candidates’ individual readiness and the motivation to perform in the field of medicine. Also, the method aims to finalise if the student accepts the scholarships, the stage of study at the institution and the starting of the study.
The nomination of students for this stage was primarily based on their selection of programmes in the frequent admission method, meeting the needs of these programmes, and comparing their competitive grades with other students applying for the identical programmes.
The larger education institutions will supply the ministry with the outcomes of the tests of the candidates. The final outcomes of the candidates will be announced on August 12.
