What will it be like to spend 20 months studying medicine at Saba University? Probably similar to what it will be like studying medicine anywhere else.
On campus, students must meet attendance requirements and are encouraged to get together regularly with their professors outside of class. Saba University faculty typically maintain an “open door” policy for impromptu student consultation, and they provide contact information so they can be reached whenever they're off campus.
Of course, as at any school, there is a life outside the classroom. At Saba University, there is a wide array of student organizations as well as an active Student Government Association. Many students get involved in local programs focused on enhancing the health of the Saba community.
Where will you live? At Saba University, all unaccompanied first-semester students live in one of three on-campus dorms. After that, the school housing office works closely with the local community to help arrange off-campus housing. There are many off-campus options, often with stunning views of the Caribbean.
