American University of Antigua College of Medicine (AUA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Under this MOU, students from Bishop’s who qualify academically will receive preferential admission to AUA’s MD program. In addition, AUA will waive students’ application fees and expedite admissions timelines for those who pursue this opportunity.

Students from Bishop’s will also receive a $5,000 Preferred Partner Grant, the amount of which will be added to any other scholarships or grants those students qualify for at AUA.

Originally founded in 1843, Bishop’s University is highly regarded primarily as an undergraduate Canadian university. It was ranked number 1 in student satisfaction five times between 2016 and 2021. Through its agreement with Bishop’s, American University of Antigua hopes to provide access to a quality medical education to qualified students from Canada who aspire to become physicians.

“This agreement with AUA offers another option for outstanding students who wish to pursue medical studies outside of Canada,” explains Dr. Kerry Hull, Dean of Science at Bishop’s University. “This agreement demonstrates our student-centred commitment to academic excellence both at Bishop’s and beyond.”

“American University of Antigua College of Medicine is looking forward to welcome qualified students from Bishop’s University in Quebec, an esteemed Canadian institution, to our program.” – Dr. Peter Bell, Provost & VP Global Medical Education at AUA.

AUA has established agreements or MOUs with a variety of other select colleges and universities throughout Canada and the United States in an effort to provide increased access to medical education in North America and globally.
