    I wanted to apply there but there were some issues with the application. I am going to Pleven as last resort because they have Feb intake. I haven't started yet but I will do soon. I don't know if you have heard of tutelage by any chance? I went through them

    Which uni did you apply to? I applied through an agency and I didn't get charged for the application, SME were asking for too much from me so I had to look elsewhere

    I haven't applied anywhere yet, I'm going to apply to Warwick and Newcastle over here but SME told me I could apply to Sofia or Trakia in Bulgaria. What company did you use? And how are you paying for tuition fees and living etc?

    Study Medicine Europe are apparently good but they are very expensive, £5500 for the whole thing. How are you planning on paying for tuition fees and living costs?

    SME are very good, I have spoken to them, but the cost is not feasible. I've heard of other agencies that charge only for translation of the documents which sounds much better. I'm planning to pay for tuition fees (3100£) on my own, as i've worked for it past few years! Just looking for reasonable agency as I cant apply on my own - its a complete headache lol

    Have you received any offers from any of them yet? Yeah, there's a few unis in Bulgaria you could potentially go to. I went through Tutelage. Tuition fees are 7000 euros per year. I have only been here for a week and a bit so I can't really say what my living costs are like at the moment. But so far, I am enjoying it!

    Did you go straight into first year or do the foundation year? That's the uni I'm looking at but do have a few concerns about what will happen when I return regarding F2 and job etc! And also, did you manage to get a student loan?

    I went straight into first year. I already have science based A Levels, I just missed the deadlines for September intake at the other universities. Are you planning on going next year?

    I'm debating what to do, either study ALevels through the open college here and then go or what!? Decisions! Have you got a student loan to help with costs? And how do you find living there!?

    I got this reply from general medical council, I am not sure if it means you can not get provisional licence, but you can still do your FY2 in the uk. Anyway here it is:


    "Dear Jim

    Thank you for your email about obtaining registration with a medical degree from the European Economic Area (EEA).

    Some European countries include the internship year in their medical degree which means doctors cannot apply for provisional registration and will not be able to do the foundation programme in the UK.

    You can find a list of EEA countries and our requirements from each country on our website at:

    http://www.gmc-uk.org/doctors/regist...ifications.asp

    Before you apply for registration, you should read our guidance for doctors thinking about applying for registration. You may find it useful to pay particular attention to the section on key issues for EEA nationals. The website contains information about the application process and the documents you will need to submit as part of any application. When you are ready to apply you will need to complete an online application and pay a registration fee.

    To complete the three stages of the application process you will need to give us details of a number of important documents.
    • Stage 1 - Recognising your qualification
    • Stage 2 - Your licence to practise
    • Stage 3 - Completing the registration process

    Stage 1: Recognising your qualification

    When we have your application, we will assess it within five working days and then ask you to send us photocopies of some documents by post.

    Stage 2: Your licence to practise

    We need to be satisfied you have the necessary knowledge of English to communicate effectively before we give you a licence. This is so you do not put the safety of your patients at risk. Communicating includes speaking, reading, writing and listening.

    We may ask you to give us evidence that you can communicate effectively in English.

    If we ask you for this evidence, and:
    • you do not send it to us
    Or
    • we are not satisfied with it
    we will approve you for registration without a licence. You will not be able to practise medicine in the UK without a licence.
    If you give us your evidence before we complete the registration process at your ID check, and it meets our requirements, we will grant you both registration and a licence.
    Or
    You can make a separate application for a licence to practise after your registration is granted at the ID check. You will still need to give us evidence of your knowledge of English if we have asked you for it before.
    Stage 3: Completing the registration process
    You will need to bring the original versions of all your documents we have assessed to this point, including any English translations, to your identity check. We will send you an identity check invitation and tell you all the original documents we need to see.
    Please do not visit our offices for an identity check until we have invited you.
    If we grant you registration without a licence, we will refund you the licence part of your application fee.
    I hope this information is useful. If you would like to discuss the application process further please reply to this email or call me on the number below.
    Yours sincerelyNatalie"
