    You would not have to do another course in the UK. Chances are you'll fall in love with a Slovakian guy/girl and stay there though ^^. Employers in the UK may prefer someone who went to a British university, however I don't see why you wouldn't be able to get a job.

    Moved to the Medicine forum as opposed to the International Study forum (as you are not asking about the course, per se, but chances of employment in the UK following graduation)

    Assuming the OP is referring to chances of employment as a doctor following graduation, then the employer is most likely to be the NHS.

    As Slovakia is an EEA nation (just like the UK), all EEA nationals with a degree from the EEA will be considered on an equal basis. As far as I'm aware, this will be the case for training posts as well as specialist posts.

    However I am no expert and certainly can't comment on the programme itself or the university. This is one of the reasons why I have moved this in order for medical students and graduates to confirm.

    I think you won't have too many issues trying to register with the GMC when your qualified but for me personally the biggest issue in going to a university abroad is having to learn the local language and adapt to the new culture.

    If Slovakia's in the EU (I can't think of the top of my head whether it is or not) then you're considered equally with UK graduates for FY1 jobs.
