Pupil Ambassador Frederick Lee redefines the medical college expertise at RCSI! Past grades, he embraces life’s different elements, looking for steadiness and private development. Even miles from residence, he’s decided to make his college journey unforgettable.

College is not only about finding out, even for medical college. 

Most individuals go into college crammed with objectives and aspiration, in hopes of getting a greater glimpse of what their future holds. Whereas that was just about the identical for myself, I’ve all the time tried to strike a steadiness between the educational and non-academic pursuits. Individuals – even a number of my associates – are inclined to affiliate medical college students with numerous finding out hours and never having a life exterior of it however I firmly consider as necessary as grades might be, different elements of life should be well-taken care of. Actually, I have to admit coming to RCSI has by no means made this simpler; albeit being removed from residence. 

With over 30 golf equipment and societies to select from, there’s a place for anybody and something in RCSI. What makes issues higher is that each one of them are student-led and certainly very energetic. One might hardly get bored due to the variability, from Choral and Surgical Societies to Rowing and Taekwondo Golf equipment, occasions are plentiful all 12 months spherical. To say nothing of the coed social occasions similar to Faculty Ball, Worldwide Evening and lots of extra which can be held all year long to advertise networking! 

Local people involvement is one other means for me to take a break from all of the stress. This includes volunteering work in actually wherever you would possibly

really feel keen about. One among my fondest reminiscences is volunteering at Ed Sheeran’s 2022 European Tour in Croke Park along side Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF Eire) to assist elevate funds. Not solely did I be taught a lot extra concerning the frontliners who threat their lives at numerous locations all over the world, the better part was that we acquired to see Ed Sheeran’s live performance. By no means in a thousand years I might have thought this might’ve occurred to me. 

Located on the coronary heart of Eire in Dublin is not only RCSI however the well-known funds flight firm, Ryanair as properly, which flies to limitless vacation spot

s throughout Europe. Personally, I really feel like the very best perk of finding out in Europe is, one might journey very simply to neighbouring nations and actually simply take a while off from the unending revision classes. Flight tickets from as low cost as €7.99 might be purchased for a single journey to London and Ryanair even fly to locations so far as Finland. Discuss being frozen into ice! 

Admittedly, education nonetheless performs an enormous a part of college and mustn’t be uncared for. Identical to some other college students, I needed to adhere to a strict timetable in order that I don’t fall behind lessons, moreover being energetic exterior of the curriculum. Nevertheless, I’m past grateful for the standard of the lecturers and professors in RCSI who’re ever so responsive and educated in their very own specialty which all the time makes studying extra blissful. 

There are actually so some ways and strategies one can do to wind down from college. Even easy actions similar to going to the espresso store or purchasing with your pals would even do the trick. Being in RCSI has completely been such an exquisite expertise each, academically and socially. If I got one other probability to decide on my college, I might have picked RCSI once more, with out hesitation.
