Doc dream teen forced to emigrate; EDUCATION.

Byline: RICHARD SMITH

A TEENAGER whose ambition is to become a doctor has been forced to go to Romania to study medicine after being rejected by British universities.

Miriam Bourne, 18, got straight A's in her Biology, Chemistry and Geography A-levels, but failed to be offered a place by Bristol, Sheffield, Keele or Manchester universities.

In desperation, she applied to Ovidius University in Romania's oldest city Constanta and was successful.

The six-year degree is taught in English, fully recognised by the General Medical Council, and the course fees are half the PS9,000 a year in Britain.

Miriam, from Bodmin, Cornwall, said: "Studying medicine is unbelievably competitive because there a limited number of places. It's always been my dream to become a doctor.

"Romania is a fast-developing country and the facilities look great."
