Default Alfaisal University in Riyadh

Ok i know this is a long shot but its worth a try....


I was looking to apply to Alfaisal University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The college of medicine there has partnered with Partners Harvard Medical International. I believe they've already admitted their 1st batch this fall (Sept '09) http://www.alfaisal.edu/colleges/medicine/default.htm

I think PHMI is basically setting them up with Harvard's Curricula but it's admission requirements are different to that of North American medical schools in that it doesn't require you to have a pre-med degree and that you can apply directly out of high-school. So I'm thinking of applying with my A-levels

I was wondering if anyone here teaches or is affiliated with the university/program....
Do you think it's worth it?
Do you think I'd be better off attending a college somewhere else?

Hi pochakola

I know some people who teach at Faisal Uni. I suggest you drop them a line through the web site. They are pretty cluey bunch, I'm sure you'll get a reasonable reply.
