FAQs about RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus (RUMC)

Why study at RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus (RUMC)?

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.

Highly Cost-Effective Tuition and Return on Investment
International students from around the world (including Malaysia) attend RCSI and UCD to undertake their full medical course in Dublin. The RUMC programme offers an additional option for obtaining an Irish medical degree at a lower cost than attending the entire programme in Ireland.

In addition, the cost of living in Penang is also significantly less than the living costs in Dublin. The transnational basis on which the programme is delivered results in RUMC being the most cost-effective programme available in Malaysia in which to study for an Irish Medical degree with experience in Ireland.

High Quality Clinical Training
With clinical exposure beginning in Dublin, you are exposed to patient-centred learning from the very first year of your training as a doctor. Your clinical skills will be developed over the duration of the programme, culminating in your clinical training within Malaysia.
