Postgraduate Testimonials

“Working with Castel Education has been a tremendous help to me as Head of International Affairs with the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland at two levels. Firstly, Castel Education have been invaluable to me in the planning and preparation of our entry to Postgraduate Medical Training in the Middle East;and secondly in the personal support services they provide to individual trainees we recruit as they prepare to come to Ireland for training. Their experience and networking with Middle Eastern Government Agencies, coupled with their clear focus on outcome, have contributed enormously to identifying the key agencies we engage with. All of the doctors on our new Fellowship and Residency Programmes have spoken in glowing terms of their engagement with Castel and the smooth and seamless transition to Ireland through their engagement with Castel Education.”

Mr. John Magner, Head of International Affairs, Royal College of Physicians of Ireland

“Each time I’ve moved to a new country, my biggest concern is a smooth & effortless transition. Thanks to Castel Education’s help, being available 24/7 & welcome package, my transition was much smoother than I could ever hope for. Castel Education was also open to all my constructive criticism & constantly working to improve its services. Good luck and thanks for all your help.”

Postgraduate Training & Support

My journey as an International Rheumatology fellow in Ireland started in July 2018. At the very early stage I got excellent support from Castel Education platform to meet my needed language requirements. The Medical Council application procedure was lengthy but very manageable with much clarified steps and checklists provided by Castel Education.

Castel Education is providing International Candidates with tutors for personal language development pathway to achieve the IELTS/OET score.  They are also providing options for accommodation places, medical insurance, supporting immigration documents, banking appointments and even pick up at the airport. I met my language requirements in a short period of time with dedicated help I received from Castel Education. Special thanks to Castel Education for their continuous support. Currently I am starting my dream experience that I need to achieve my ultimate goals.

“Once accepted onto the programme, RCPI and Castel have a dedicated team to help me with the registration process step-by-step, until you’re completely settled in Ireland. They were fantastic, and were available for queries throughout the entire fellowship.”

The most important thing is that everything is very well organised beforehand and the programme is very well structured. It is also very easy to communicate with supervisors and the College. If you have any kind of issue, they sort it out as soon as possible, which is really great.”
