    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering if anyone has or is planning to apply to Europe or anywhere abroad to study medicine?

    I have studied law in Scotland and planning on going back to Uni to study medicine. I have currently applied to study Highers in Science so will be looking to hopefully study medicine in 2013.

    I am also planning on taking the GAMSAT exam but want to keep my options open so looking at courses in medicine abroad. I have came across a few that are offering a 4 year graduate programme.

    Hey!

    Some of the Uni's that I found teaching medicine in English are;

    Medical Academy of Bialystok, 4 year
    Medical University of Lodz, 4 year
    Medical University of Lublin, 4 year
    Jagiellonian University Medical College, 4 year

    I think these Uni's are in Poland. Do you guys know of any others Uni's in Europe that do a 4 year programme for medicine?

    Are you guys planning on taking the GAMSAT? I haven't applied for it yet and a bit nervous as I'm from a non-science background. Wot were your degrees in?

    Do remember that even if your teaching is in English, your patients won't speak English and you will therefore need to learn the language of the country that you're studying in, in time to be able to communicate with your patients during your clinical years.

    I'd be interested in finding out what the cheapest English taught programme in Europe is. . .

    And just to reiterate what junior.doctor said, wherever you go it'll be expected that you take intensive language courses alongside your medicine programme.

    What's your plan for after you graduate?

    Is the degree recognised by the GMC in England?
    Can you still get into the foundation programme in England?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    the best unis to study Medicine in Poland are Jagiellonian University and Warsaw University of Medicine. Their programmes and diplomas are internationally recognised, but the websites give no details about GMC recognition, you may want to write an email.
    You have to pay an application fee (200 EUR in Warsaw, 50 EUR in Kraków). Concerning the difficulty... You better judge it yourself: admission process in Kraków and Warsaw. I assume you finished high school and want to apply for a 6 year programme.
    You can find the info about the fees on the websites.
    If you have questions PM me, I'll try to respond asap.

    Use the website Eunicas. It's excellent. All European courses on it are taught through English. Hope that helps.
