    Any recommendations on which universities are good and in whichg European country?

    Any help appreciated.

    I wouldn't bother, if it's your first time applying in the UK just give it another shot next year if you don't get in.

    Stay positive it's not over til the fat lady sings/admissions tutor says no.

    But yeah to answer your question, I know people who've gone to Prague to study so it's definitely an option.

    Thanks, It's my second time applying and also a resit applicant so my choices are very limited if I apply again next year.
    Would you be able to put me in contact with them or ask them about the application process and course structure please? I can send you my email in a PM if you like. Thanks

    PS weldone on your interviews and offer!

    You should ne aware that it always requires a very good proficiency in the specific country's language! You will find very few universities offering medicine in English.

    Would your parents be willing to let you move far way just to study medicine. I had offers to study medicine abroad(Just applied to see if I would get in), but my parents would never let me move that far away. Are your parents comfortable with the idea of letting you move away.

    I'm only looking at unis that offer the course in English and there seems to be quite a few. I have been told I'll need to learn the native language but that is taught at uni during the first few years.

    I see whats your saying, but yes they're ok with me going away. Ideally would would be best if I get in here but if not, they're letting me. So what are you doing now - did you reapply here this year or did you take another course?

    Where did you apply and who did you apply through? Which university would you recommend and hats the application process like? Thanks

    I know of University of Debrecen in Hungary. I've got friends there and they really love it and are happy.
    Thanks, do you know much about the entrance criteria/ application process or who they applied through? I've found atleast 3 sites and have no idea which is the best.
    Is there any chance I can contact one of them to ask about the structure if the course and what it's like living out there and the language issue? I can PM my email or you can PM me their contact details if they're happy to talk to me?
    Thanks

    University Of Malta is a good choice, you will not have to learn Maltese as English is an official language. The requirements are 3 B's in Biology, Chemistry and another ALevel like Maths or Physics. Here a link for the requirements http://www.um.edu.mt/__data/assets/p...ver5July11.pdf
    And here's where you can apply https://esims.um.edu.mt/esims/ipp/appindex.html
    hope that helps.

    Not true. Several medical schools in Czech Republic, Romania, Poland etc. offer Medicine in English.

    I said that there are few, if you take all the medical schools in Europe and count the ones you mentioned, that is a small fraction. Also, the OP should think about whether he wants to study in Romania, for example. Not that I have prejudices, but it is not for everyone. Still, you are right, there is a chance.

    make sure that if you take a med degree in europe that it would qualify you to work in your home country after if thats what you want to do and what your prospects would be like with regards to training compared to those who have done the degree back home.

    I'll come back here for training. As long as the degree I get is recognised in the country that issues it, it is recognised in the UK as its in the EU.

    Do you know much about Romania? Is there something in particular that puts people off? Would appreciate any info. Thanks

    No, not really A friend studies medicine at Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary at the moment, and finds it quite okay, it is a very old an renowned university offering courses in Hungarian, English and German. Yet, it is quite some kind of harbour for people who got rejected in Germany, since it is one of very few universities abroad offering medicine in German.

    I actually expressed doubts since Eastern Europe is less developed and well-off overall then Western Europe and it will probably (though not necessarily) have consequences for the education over there.

    Here you have a guide to studying medicine in Romania, but I have not read it and do not know whether it is biased or neutral.

    Yes Hungary (and Czech) seem popular options. Oh I see what you mean now. Thanks for the link too.
