    I would really love to study medicine in the us however the process their is very long as you need to have a bachelor of some sort and it is very expensive compared to the UK.

    Hong kong

    I know that they teach medicine in English in hku however I have heard you need to speak Cantonese.


    I am not sure how the process works there.

    What's wrong with studying it here?

    It is a lot more expensive to study abroad, as you cannot get student finance equal to that of studying in the UK, as well as living costs covered etc. I was looking the other day and most courses require you to speak their native language
    If you want to apply to medicine, and you have the A-level grades, try and apply here - you can always practice abroad when you've finished. Otherwise, I would try and either save to study abroad or do a graduate medicine course if not having the correct grades/ subjects is the reason you want to study abroad.
