Hey last year I applied to carol Davila and there were about 40 students (around 35 applied through plus med) from the UK, all got rejected and they don't care about your grades, all that matters is the English test results. I also got rejected so I decided to go along with around 15 British students to Craiova since it is the biggest medical Uni in Romania with the biggest hospital.
I love it here at the moment and the university organise elections and allow students to take control of the organisation of the course and there are so many opportunities to do practical work in the hospital and clinics here. The city is great with lots to do and a great night life and funny enough it is a lot safer than majority of UK cities which is something I didn't expect before coming here.

If you have any question send me a message ?

Hi,

Im at carol davila - 2nd year, i would advise not to come here. Arad is terrible. Cluj is the best university but very difficult to get into, they only accept people with more or less straight A's but you'll need to pass science related enterance exam aswel...Iasi is fairly decent, there is no entrance exam but again you'll need top grades, they offer admissions on a point system which is developed according to your grades, personal statement, work experience etc...
I have visited every uni here & seem to like Constanta the best, the place is really nice & i am transferring there this year. I contacted the uni who put me through to their trusted approved agent who is arranging my transfer.
Personally i think cluj is the best, followed closely by constanta...i would advise that you consider it

You have an excellent chance of getting a place. I'm not sure what the agenda of the previous poster is. I have been to Bucharest and that is not the imformation I have. The main thing is passing this English language exam. Yes, sometimes UK students have failed it because they haven't taken it seriously, or perhaps although they are UK citizens English is not their native language. The test does require you to have a good standard of English language, correct spelling and grammar etc. The lady I spoke with said some students had used 'texting language'. Well of course they're going to fail!
The other entrance exam which is more competitive is only for those who speak Romanian. Check out medxl.co.uk they have all info. I made contact with them recently and they were so helpful and in the UK too. In your case anything prior to A levels doesn't matter. The complicated thing is the actual admissions process.

I went to Bucharest personally and was told by the actual staff in the department - not by medxl or any company - by the Faculty themselves. They told me that all the British that applied were of other ethnicities and many had what they considered to be "a poor standard of English spelling and grammar" and didn't take the exam at all seriously and some didn't speak English at home. They said that the exam does test proper traditional English grammar and many students educated in countries with more traditional education systems ie Africa and India were better prepared to pass the language exam than students from Britain because we don't teach English grammar in schools here anymore. They also said some students had used 'u' instead of 'you'.

However, when applying, take all advice into consideration- even though people may have had bad experiences with certain agencies, I also know some people that got in with very little/no stress whatsoever.

I have been considering UMF Iasi as well. I will be applying without an agent - Many people have applied successfully without one.

How many docs in the UK do you think actually graduated in the EU - a huge number graduated in India, Pakistan, Nigeria etc. Over 2000 docs who qualified in ROmania work in UK as docs - all you need to do it ask GMC under a Freedom of Information request!

I have spoken with doctors, hospitals and the GMC about this issue and they all assured me that as long as I am an UK citizen I can fit back into the UK system easily because romania is an EU country and All the Government Universties adhere to the EU and UK standard.

hope that helps

Hi Everyone, I see many of you are intrested in coming to Romania to study Medicine. At the moment, I study at Craiova Medical School in English with many British Students (who all came to Bucharest Last year and were rejected after the English Exam). MedLink Students are now organising for all british applicants to apply to the university of craiova to study medicine and they will be conducting interviews in July. Application process will be openning very soon in the UK, we will keep you updated.

The University is only likely to Except Medical Students from the UK this year, that is why MedLink Students are only allowed to register UK students for the first year. Students with a degree could be considered for entry directly into the second Year of English course.
This is a facebook page showing the uni and a few students:
http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Med...337006?fref=ts
And how much exactly does medlink charge ? for services does it require, do we have to notorise the documents ourselves? and if you tell me there is a deposit, how much is it and what are the terms for securing it back....btw a letter from the ministry of education is not an 'acceptance letter' it's just document stating equivalence.

I just tore studymedabroad apart, they were frauds, they don't do anything and charge 3000 euros which you'll most likely never see again....always read the contracts people!!!! and always find out what needs to be done so that you know what they expect you to do and what they are actually doing themselves, usually nothing.

Hi.

It appears the Romanian and Bulgarian universities are less competitive in comparison to British ones (for medicine anyway). Are there any other EU countries like this? Or are most on par with Britain in terms of the difficulty and popularity of applying to medicine?

Thanks

Loads, I can't remember them all of the top of my head but a google search of study medicine in English abroad will reveal them to you

I know Hungry, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and the Czech Republic are in the same sort of ball park. (most European countries now offer an option to study in English)

You'll have to be mores specific, what do you mean a masters degree in a hospital?
I would advise you try to contact the hospitals you have found the course at, are you sure you don't mean to apply to an affiliated university?
