Choice Between Masters Scholarship In The UK Vs High Paying Job

Hello guys. I'm kinda in a dilemma rgt now. I'm a medical doctor about #500k a month with allowances. However I have been offered a scholarship for masters in the UK and I'm hoping to practice over these subsequently.

However I'm torn between resigning my job here in Nigeria (which though quite high paying but is riddled with frustrations from poor working conditions to poor facilities to practice my skills as a surgeon etc) OR accepting the scholarship offer and moving onto a place with good facilities and potentials.

I have this fear of the unknown, if I resign over here and move over there only to discover things aren't what it seemed or as rosy as I thought. Advice urgently needed pls.

Have you begun your residency?, why not take the masters offer and do your plab exams during the course of the masters, you know plab right?
by the time you're done with the masters and you hopefully pass the part1 and part2 exams, it will be easy to either begin your residency there or get outright employment pending when you want to begin residency...kill two birds with one stone

How about Australia or UK? I hear the process in Canada is quite cumbersome

My brother, you will get stuck in Canada O, getting into residency there is like passing through the eye of a needle... Have enough savings, come to UK , while doing your masters, try to complete PLAB and you'll see opportunities...

I suggest UK, i don't know if you plan to continue your job here, or take up employment in your country of study (since you said you're currently doing your residency), if you intend to continue your Job here i would say anywhere since you are still coming back, but if you intend to relocate, i suggest UK, reason being masters in canada is very costly and they may require you to have some millions in your account as backup (the course fees aside oo!!).

Its no doubt their doctors are one of the highest paid in the world, if not the highest, but i heard even after your masters, you may not be able to get a Job as a medical officer, even with your experience, as i don't think they recognize your MBBS, (you'd have to do their own medical exam, similar to plab, but i hear they recognize plab, even australia does) even after all the money you spent, you may only be able to work as a medical assistant...

In UK however, its comparatively cheaper the major cost you would incur for plab is plab2 when you would need to pay for tutorials, accommodation, flight costs e.t.c. for a period of 6weeks (you wouldn't need tutorials if you're a genius anyways smiley smiley, just flight cost and accommodation for about 2 days (a place to stay after the exam and you're back)), but all of that is irrelevant since you're going for masters, all these costs would be factored in, and since you're there primarily for study, you'd have enough time to tackle the plab1 (many doctors that take the exam here in nigeria still have to squeeze out time from a hectic schedule to prepare for the exam) so you're at an advantage

Before you're course runs out, if you're dedicated, you'd have passed your plab and be done with your masters, probably even gotten a job there, because its a lot easy to get a job while you're still there as many hospitals prefer doctors who are resident in the UK (i'm no doctor, but i know this because i know someone who went through this process)

Don't joke with an opportunity to travel out, a friend of mine who took the exam said she saw a consultant form luth taking the plab exam also, so you can imagine if a consultant from luth is taking an entry level exam into the UK's medical system, why would you a resident be non-challant about it....

also you'll need ielts, with a score of at least 8.0 or 7.5 before you can start talking of plab1, so much work for you here....Adios and best of luck

Thanks a lot. I really appreciate your timely and experienced response. The masters is fully sponsored, along with accommodation and feeding for a year. The reason why I brought up the Australia and Canada options was because I heard a lot of UK doctors are even migrating to Australia because of better working services. I had seriously considered Australia also because they're good in my specialty of surgery. Would really appreciate responses on this.

Like I always said, Nigerian are their own problems until we realize that this nation will never move an inch of progress.

A potential individual [Nigerian] brought two options on the table, one of which is beneficial to Nigeria and other which is totally of no benefits to Nigeria and Nigerians... to my greatest surprise, all comments from Nigerians above and below is advising he leaves. They don't even know genius doctors will soon go extinct in Nigeria because they're leaving the shore almost everyday.

My question is How will Nigeria be great when Nigerians are advising all the already threatened brains to leave? Each time they leave the more useless and endanger Nigerian health sector becomes.

Sometimes is not what your country can do for you, it's what you can do for your country.

Your house is on fire, instead of us to seek for solutions on how to quench the fire, we ran to relax in our neighbors abode.

I know everyone deserves the best out of life, everyone wants the best out of life, but sometimes in life we have to make sacrifices which aren't convenient but are worth it.

Op, I know if you leave, your probabilities of coming back is zero to none. remember the lives you've saved so far with the little available resources to you. think of lives that will lost when you're not there to contribute... is it really worth it?
If you have intentions of coming back, there's nothing wrong if you go for your masters outside the shore, but it'll be inhume if you don't return after witnessing what your people are going through.


like I always wrote on my facebook wall and whatsapp status... "If your ambition in life is to go to school, graduate, get a job, build a house, get a car, get a wife and bore kids... then you don't know your purpose of existence"


I know I'm offpoint, that's what everyone thinks of me... but I'm always on the right path, so please don't quote to insult me if your IQ is lower than my UBA account balance. if you care to know, it's N32.00

Move....


You won't regret it.


Medical line issa hot cake outside Nigeria.

Believe, you will earn more than that 500k after your Masters.

It is because frustration hasn't set him, that's why you are still talking, you said poor condition of service and the likes, it would get to a point, you won't enjoy the money cos you ain't happy with the job.

Leave I beg. The grass is greener with your course outside Nigeria.

Mr you are yet to do your Masters and you are already receiving 500k in Nigeria?

Bro be honest to yourself then you will get honest advise.

A poor working condition, non conducive environ to work, frustration etc as you mentioned and yet such poor managed organization still cough out 500k monthly for you?

Bro I have issue with your post because I'm a employer of Labour so I know what is going on out there what you postedhere is of questionable facts ok. No offense but I'm not buying buying it, it sound freaking bogus.

UK master is good but that 500k Monthly is better. You can simply do your masters at any Top Nigeria Universities while keep working and making your money. You can later travel abroad to study any international course undernyor field and that’s gonna be another added CERT!
