There are many destinations to choose from for those who wish to study abroad. The United States is one of the most popular countries for international students. The cultural diversity is highly appealing. US universities’ fame reigns supreme. Seven (7) out of 10 best universities in the world according to the Times Higher Education League Table 2013 are in the US. Australia and New Zealand are also strong contenders. Both countries boast of its reputation for being educational powerhouses with some of the world’s best facilities. In Asia, Singapore and China are attracting more and more attention with their growing economy. However, Europe never loses its charm. This continent is arguably the best destination for international students for the following reasons.
Culture
It is undeniable that Europe has a rich history with a variety of cultures, each of which is vibrant and enticing in their own unique way. The European countries are famous worldwide for their cultural capitals so resplendent that praises have been sung for them for centuries. Music and the arts are not the only things that flourish in Europe. Europe is also home to philosophers and politicians, economists and scientists. These cradles of Western civilisations have given birth to ingenious men and women, who created and left behind a wealth of culture and knowledge that attract and enchant many. The UK is one such cradle. Cities such as London and Edinburgh house cultural treasures that are hard to find elsewhere. For philosophers and scientists alike, Europe is the place to be. What can be more wonderful than studying in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, soaking up the fantastic culture and languages?
Excellent Educational system
Europe has a long-standing tradition of learning and education. The very first high-learning institutions were established in Ancient Greece. Education has always been an essential part of European countries. The modern universities in Europe have state-of-the-art technology, modern facilities and the best educators. Their libraries have an extensive collection of books, from standard textbooks to rare first-editions, that will definitely quench your thirst for knowledge. Moreover, the high quality of teaching and learning in Europe is constantly monitored and improved by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) created through the Bologna Process. The EHEA ensures the comparability and compatibility of the educational systems in Europe, which means that the European universities cannot afford to let their standards slip and are prompted to continue improving. Students interested in studying in Europe have a wide range of high quality, institutions to choose from. The UK in particular has many highly regarded universities. Oxford and Cambridge remain on top of the league tables. International students are entitled to the best education they can have. Europe surely can provide it.
Travelling
Europe is the ultimate place to travel. The cities are resplendent; each has its own colour, all so vivid that none can outshine the others. Studying in Europe enables you to travel easily from country to country. For those who need a visa to travel, with the exception of the UK and Norway, a student visa or residence permit of any European countries entitles you to visit other countries that are parts of the Schengen area. The single currency, used in most countries makes it even easier for you to travel without concerns over exchange rates. Only in Europe can you have such an experience.
In summary, here are a few of other reasons why studying in Europe is advantageous.
1. High quality academic programmes
2. Cutting-edge laboratories and facilities
3. Innovative research
4. Internationally-recognised degrees
5. Improved career prospects
6. Good value for money
7. Scholarships and funding opportunities
8. The chance to learn a new language or study in English
9. A great choice of cultural and leisure opportunities 
10. Chances of Permanent Residence & Settlement in Europe after completion of study program.

Studying in Europe brings you more than just a brilliant education. When you study oversea, you gain unparalleled experience. You can pick up a language, immerge in cultures so rich that you are determined to come back to experience more. The benefits are limitless!

The Caribbean is a region that consist of the Caribbean Sea, its islands (some surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and some bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean), and the surrounding coasts. The region is southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American mainland, east of Central America, and north of South America.
Situated largely on the Caribbean Plate, the region comprises more than 700 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. The Caribbean island, consisting of the Greater Antilles on the north and the Lesser Antilles on the south and east, are part of the somewhat larger West Indies grouping.
Geopolitically, The Caribbean islands are usually regarded as a subregion of North America and are organised into 30 territories including sovereign states, overseas departments, and dependencies.

Geography & Climate
The geography and climate in the Caribbean region varies: some islands in the region have relatively flat terrain of non-volcanic origin. Others possess rugged towering-ranges like the islands of Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Dominica Republic, Montserrat, Saba, Saint Kitts etc.
The climate of the area is tropical but rainfall varies with elevation, size, and water current. Warm, moist trade winds blow consistently from the east creating rainforest/ semi desert divisions on mountainous islands. Occasional northwesterlies affect the northern islands in the winter. The region enjoys year-round sunshine, divided into ‘dry’ and ‘wet’ season, with the last six month of the year being wetter than the first half.
Countries where it occasionally snows, in the Caribbean, are: Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and Cuba.
The waters of the Caribbean Sea host large, migratory schools of fish, turtles, and corals reef formations.
Hurricanes that sometimes batter the region usually strike northwards of Grenada and the west of Barbados.

AREA: The Caribbean islands cover a total area of 2,754,000 km2(1,063,000 sq mi). The Land Area is 239,681 km2 (92,541 sq mi).

POPULATION: The population of the Caribbean is around 39 million (39,169,962).


LANGUAGEES: English, Spanish, French, Dutch, among others

GOVERNMENT: 13 Sovereign states and 17 dependent territories






COUNTRIES: The countries in the Caribbean islands include the following:

LIFE IN THE CARIBBEAN
The Caribbean island is one of the most exciting places to live in the world. It has an exciting lifestyle, music, food and culture. The people in the Caribbean are very close with their family, that’s why they are considered a happy people. They put themselves around the people they love and are rarely alone.  When it comes to receiving foreign visitors, the people of the Caribbean islands are very hospitable and this is the reason why the very rich and influential people in our societies today go to the Caribbean to spend their vacation. No doubt, you will sure enjoy your stay in this beautiful region as a student.





The lure of the beauty of the Caribbean isn't just for those seeking fun and relaxation. It is also for students wishing to study there as well. Higherway educational Consultant focuses on medical students recruitment into Caribbean schools. With over 60 medical schools listed in the International Medical Education Directory (IMED), the Caribbean has increasingly become the preferred destination for students seeking alternatives to their domestic medical schools.
The 25 most popular Caribbean medical schools are located on islands varying in size, demography, and environment. Official languages of a majority of the region’s islands/countries are English, French, Spanish, Dutch, and Papiamento.
As if the perpetually sunny forecast isn't enticing enough, doctors-to-be (and nurses, too) who choose the Caribbean for medical school often enjoy the benefits of personalized attention and a small student body typically lacking in most other places. Caribbean medical schools also provide students with specialties and training opportunities that are difficult to find elsewhere.
From specializing in tropical medicine to fulfilling residency requirements in small family or community-based practices, students who graduate from Caribbean medical schools will possess extensive hands-on clinical experience in settings that will give them insight into the ways in which society and medicine intersect.
There are still more benefits to studying medicine in the Caribbean. There’s a benefit that’s often overlooked: that’s diverse student bodies. Universities in the Caribbean attract students from around the world.
While this is also true of continental universities, foreign students in large schools often get absorbed into their own unique cultural groups. In the Caribbean, the small admission ratio serves to keep students intermingling regardless of their background. Other advantages of studying in the Caribbean include:
1. Less tuition fee: Caribbean medical schools cost less than US medical schools both public and private but at the same time offer high quality education since they have the privilege of having global medical faculties.
2. American curriculum: Caribbean medical schools follow the American curriculum of education.
3. Short duration of program: Unlike medical degree that is 6 years elsewhere like in the US and in European countries, it is a 4 years program in most Caribbean islands’ medical schools.
4. Advanced training methodology: Studying in a medical school that imparts training through the latest and the most advanced equipment in healthcare not only expedites the learning process for the student but also gives him/her the edge over their counterparts. It also helps the students in their residency applications as well as when they are seeking employment opportunities in the US and Western European countries.
5. US based Clinical Rotation Opportunities: There are clinical rotation opportunities in the U.S and Canada. In many of the Caribbean schools, the first two years of basic science is done on their campuses overseas, while clinical rotations are done in U.S. hospitals. Though your home school is still overseas, you have the advantage of the same clinical exposure and opportunities as the hospitals' home medical students. Many past students cite this as an advantage in applying to United States and Canada residencies.
6. International Exposure: As is the case with pursuing education abroad, the international exposure gained in Caribbean islands helps the student in gaining exposure to the global world, since he/she gets a chance to interact with foreign students from over all the world. This also adds to their advantage list when seeking employment opportunities in the US and western countries and lead to significant advancement in their careers.
We have given you some of the advantages why you may have to study in the Caribbean. Now, take a decision today and let’s work your way to the Caribbean.

Over the years we have recorded a large number of students from African countries (e.g Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and South Africa) and even the United States of America, coming to us to work their way to the Caribbean to study.  Over 98% of these students want to study medicine in the Caribbean. This led us to focus on medical students and medical schools respectively as far as study in the Caribbean is concerned. We then focused majorly on four of the best major Medical Universities which we partner with today. They are:
All Saints University School of Medicine
Windsor University School of Medicine
Ross University
St. George’s University
Because the competition for admission to medical schools in the United States is extremely strong, many applicants consider attending medical school in the Caribbean. In fact, a great many bright and talented applicants are now opting to obtain their medical education in the Caribbean.
How can you decide what is the best choice for you? What must you consider in evaluating these schools? And will you be able to obtain a residency in the United States after you graduate? To help you decide if attending a Caribbean medical school is a good choice, we put this piece for you.
A Little Background
In the last four decades, the Caribbean has seen a steady increase in the number of medical schools on the islands as well as the size of their student bodies.  In the late 1970′s three Caribbean medical schools were established: American University of the Caribbean, originally located on the Island of Montserrat, Ross University on the Commonwealth of Dominica, and St. George’s University in Grenada.   Since their inception, these schools have educated many US citizens seeking a medical education outside the US, and now about 60 medical schools in the Caribbean are listed in the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education Directory (IMED).
The physicians who graduate from Caribbean medical schools play an increasingly important role in the US health care system by supplying residency programs with qualified applicants and helping to meet a well documented physician shortage, particularly in primary care medicine.  While accreditation, didactic studies (first and second years of medical school), and clinical rotations (third and fourth years of medical school) differ among institutions, requirements for graduate certification in the United States, as outlined by the Philadelphia based Educational Committee on Foreign medical graduatess, are the same for all students graduating from all international schools, including the Caribbean.

Caribbean Medical School Accreditation
Accreditation for Caribbean medical schools is on several levels, including local Ministry of Health accreditation by some  individual Caribbean country’s government, regional accreditation by organizations such as The Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP). The World Health Organization (WHO) does not accredit medical schools but maintains a list of schools that are recognized by local governments. In the United States, The National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Acrreditation of the US Department of Education (NCFMEA) of the United States Department of Education determines whether the process conducted by an accrediting organization is comparable to the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) process of accreditation. This is a voluntary process so not all schools undergo this evaluation. If a school’s accreditation is deemed comparable to the LCME process, then that country can apply for US federal loans for those students. Currently, only 3 schools in the Caribbean are eligible for these loans.
It is important to know which organizations have accredited any school you consider attending.  Knowing if the state in which you intend to practice recognizes your school is also important.  Caribbean medical schools proudly display these accreditations on their websites so if an accreditation is missing, be wary.
Quality of Medical Education in the Caribbean
The only way to evaluate the education Caribbean medical students received was to examine students’ scores on the United States Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 1, which is taken after the second year of medical school. Investigators calculated the average USMLE Step 1 first time pass rate for each country in the Caribbean. In evaluating this data they also took into account that some islands have more than one medical school.  The countries with the highest percentage of students passing the (USMLE) Step 1 on the first attempt were Grenada (84.4 %) and Dominica (69.7%). Countries with the lowest pass rates were Saint Lucia (19.4%) and Antigua/Barbuda (22.9%).

Preclinical Years
Students typically spend the first four to five semesters of medical school in the Caribbean completing basic science courses before taking USMLE Step I.  Basic science curriculums in the Caribbean are similar to US curriculums.  Some schools offer a fifth semester, either in the Caribbean or in the US, to help students prepare for the USMLE Step 1 and transition to their clinical semesters.
On the plus side, many students form strong relationships with classmates and also enjoy learning about the history and culture of the local West Indian population. Former students also have fond memories of celebrating yearly holidays such as Carnival, the colourful, festive, and historical event celebrated annually throughout the Caribbean. After successfully passing the USMLE Step 1, students proceed to their clinical rotations, which usually are outside of the Caribbean.  When evaluating schools, it is important to ask what percentages of students who initially enrol in each class actually take and pass the USMLE Step 1 and successfully proceed to clinical rotations.

Clinical Years
Core clinical rotations and third and fourth year curriculum in Caribbean schools resemble those of US medical schools. Caribbean schools that offer clinical training in the US have strict guidelines about the location and quality of students’ clinical training.  All core rotations and subinternships must be completed in hospitals with which the Caribbean medical school has an active, written affiliation agreement and which have appropriate clinical faculty members. Rotations must be approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). In addition, it is preferable that hospitals have approved residency training programs (or their British equivalents) in the specialties through which students rotate.  Students also take both parts of USMLE Step 2 (clinical knowledge and clinical skills) after the third year.
Hospitals in which electives are taken should also have approved postgraduate programs in those specialties.  For example, it is best to do an anesthesia elective at a hospital that has an anesthesiology residency. Regardless of school affiliation, however, individual hospitals still reserve the right to screen individual students for elective clerkship acceptance. Some individual hospitals and departments do not accept international rotating students, which can limit the away electives in which students can participate. From a competitive perspective, it is always preferable to participate in clinical rotations located in hospitals that not only have ACGME accredited residency programs but are academic teaching hospitals rather than community hospitals.
If I Go To a Caribbean Medical School, Can I Get a Residency?
Graduates of Caribbean medical schools have tremendous success in obtaining residency positions, even in competitive specialties. It helps to attend a well-established Caribbean school, perform well on the USMLE Steps 1 and 2, and obtain strong letters of recommendations. Before applying for the residency match and early in medical school, students should strategically plan their clinical clerkships in the US, ideally arranging rotations in the settings where they prefer to match.  In recent years, Caribbean students with strong academic and clinical performances have been able to obtain competitive residency positions at an increasing rate.  However, the largest number of students pursue less competitive specialties, such as internal medicine or family practice.  Some students are also able to “prematch” into residency positions outside of the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
When evaluating the success of a Caribbean medical school’s graduates, it is important to find out specifically where and in what specialties students match. Also determine what percentage of fourth year students match into categorical programs. This information may not be easy to obtain. While schools typically publish their match results, it is unclear if these lists are truly comprehensive.
After residency, Caribbean medical students, along with their domestic colleagues, will obtain board certification and must meet specific requirements for state licensure. The quality of one’s residency training usually carries more weight than the medical school attended, so obtaining the best possible residency and even fellowship can help Caribbean students overcome some of the bias foreign students face when competing for competitive attending positions.
Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduate (ECFMG) Certification and Graduate Medical Education Programs
To be eligible for ACGME accredited residency programs in the United States, and for licensure in many states, students who graduate from a Caribbean medical school must obtain an ECFMG certificate. Eligibility for this certificate includes graduating from a medical school listed in FAIMER’s online International Medical Education Directory (IMED) and passing the USMLE Steps 1 and 2 (both clinical knowledge and clinical skills).
