Usually when does Sri Lankan University Life start?
And when does it end exactly?

How long does it take from the beginning of uni life till you get the Dr. title (Including internship)???

Just curious to know.... MBBS seems to be the longest degree.... ;)

@Michael Zachary

I know it is 6 years....

I want to know the month uni life starts and then when it ends...
like I am 2016 batch student...
So, then exam finishes in August 2016
Results will be out by December 2016....
then 1 year till admission to Uni
Cut-off will be released in 2017 October...
And then after registration...when will it start???

2017 or 2018? Which month?
And which month will it end, i.e to get the degree "Dr. [blank] MBBS"?
I mean how many years and months in total...

I just wanted to know 'cause I wanted to calculate how old will someone be once they finish their MBBS degree in 1st shy results, i.e the minimum age to become a doctor IN Sri Lanka....

Huh.....It may take 6 years for MBBS and, I am not sure about the special fields.
It takes 4 years for Engineering.

If another can easily anger you, it is because you are off balance with yourself :) :) :)

Hi there,

LTA that is a great question.
To complete MBBS course it will officially take 5 years and to complete engineering it takes 3 & 1/2 years.

But those period varies between universities. Eg: Some universities finish MBBS course before 5 years and some universities complete the course in about 5 & 1/2 years. This is due to their curriculum and other things like Universtiy strikes.

Although we different Universities finishes the MBBS in different time, the internship begins at the same time. In between the Final MBBS exam and Internship, every doctor gets a pretty good holiday. That's how they begin the internship at once. (The doctors can do private practice during the holidays.)
So if I include the Internship, it gets 6 years.

Hi Ash Mbrk,

I entered medicine through my first shy results. When I was entering university I was 20. And I will be 25 years old when I finish my MBBS degree. After I finish that I have to go through the internship in order to practice in Government hospital in Sri Lanka. So when I finish internship, it will be about 26 or 27 years.

In other countries like Russia, some Universities MBBS course goes up to 6 years, Because in the first year you have to study Physics, Biology, Chemistry & Latin.
I haven't heard of any universities which finishes its MBBS course in 4 years.

After a person completes their course in another country and if they want to practice in SL, they have to face an exam. Only those who passes the exam will be registered in Sri Lankan medical council and will be able to practice here in Sri Lanka.

Regards
Hope you are enjoying our service!

@Afdhaal

But, what about the special fields, if we wanna do it? I heard that it would take about 10 years too.
Well, I am sorry....I am not sure....

Do you know about Engineering? Cuz, I am a Physical Science student actually.
