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 ?
In Romania, Craiova is considered to be one of the most dangerous cities.

I will, I got my gf to call up (She's Romanian, but studying here in London) and they've said I will have no problem getting in based on my academic track record, so I think I'll be fine.

But my God do they ask for a tonne of documents!!!

I spoke my gf's Dad (he's president of commerce and industry for Moldova and Romania and deals in medical goods) and he's assured me that a bribe wont be necessary. Whereas in most institutions it is a norm (like 'tipping' your doctor), he's stated that the university is respectable and would be insulted by the gesture if I was to put it forward.

where are you applying?

Regards

Arran
Good for you. Don't listen to the guy. I don't know how the procedures go for international students, but for romanians the most competitive medical schools to get in are definitely Carol Davila and UMF Cluj. Most students prepare two years in advance for the entry exams. Also, Davila is the only romanian uni with a Nobel-prize laureate amongst its alumni. Iasi and Targu-Mures are also pretty reputable, but I think they lowered their standards over the past few years.
PS: It's kind of weird to see so many brits talking about romanian universities, whilst in Romania, the idea of going to a british uni after graduation is what keeps many students focused on studying.

Well...my personal opinion shouldn.t be taken as objective reference. I had quite a number of friends applying to medical schools in high-school, but I only lived in Cluj and Iasi and thus I didn't hear a lot about Constanta. Anyway...I looked it up and apparently the government classifies the universities in terms of quality. Iasi, Cluj and Davila are A-Class. Timisoara, Targu-Mures, Constanta and Craiova are B-Class. An untranslated link would be this: http://www.evz.ro/detalii/stiri/vezi...ra-948185.html
So..I guess Constanta is OK, but not the best. Also..there's the advantage of being at the seaside

Being in limbo sucks! So many of out clients tell us a similar story. Let me have a go at answering your questions...


- From my experience Bulgarian universities have some catching up to do with Romania. We plan to work in Bulgaria within a few months, but for now we're finishing off with the 2012 applications to Romania.

- Grades: Although application to Romanian medical schools technically does not require exceptional results, we've noticed far more competition this year as Romania grows in popularity amongst European applicants. If you apply later in the cycle it's possible for an applicant with better results to be given preference. This is not official, just something we've observed.


* The Chem & Bio grades you have, would put you ahead many of our applicants *


- I'd say the biggest hurdle with the application process is organization and communication between the various institutes and government departments that your application file has to go through. It's almost like a gauntlet of death! Hence the reason for so "for a million agencies with their own agenda". We've been working in Romania since 2001 and we too are surprised at how many questionable service providers have appeared over the years. We even found one that had copied our website word for word!

We take our clients files directly to the Ministry of Education where they are reviewed. This gives us the advantage of correcting any errors in the file instead of having it declined for something silly like an unclear photocopy or incorrectly spelt last name in the application form. The officials really scrutinize every application.


- Budget: You're looking at a comfortable annual budget of 12 000 Euros including tuition, accommodation (your own or shared apartment), food etc. This is an important factor for many of our non-EU applicants who generally have smaller budgets.


- Application deadline: We're just about to close off our applications for this year (2012). As it stands there are few more applicants from the UK and Norway who are insisting on trying for this year, that we are helping out.


I hope this answers most of your questions.

For people who want to study medicine in Romania, I would recommend Oradea. My sister studies there, she's in her third year now. She has confirmed that there is no corruption going on there unlike many universities in romania e.g iasi, timisoara

The was also this guy that has transferred from another university in romania in her class, apparently he did not even go the lectures and hardly ever came to uni. At the end he tried to bribe the lecturer by giving him 20 000 euros and demanding to go the next level. The lecturer just laughed at him and told all the students in the uni.

Oradea is also fairly cheap, i think the tuition fee is about 2500 pounds, and scholarships are offered if you show excellent results each year. I know few people who got this scholarship and they don't have to pay for the whole year. However the scholarship has to be earned every year.

Sadly only medicine is taught in English, therefore I need to find another university as I want to pursue career in Dentistry. I still have time though as I am starting my A2 next academic year.

Wish you people all the best, and keep away from the corrupted universities. So far what I heard from the experiences of my sister's friends. Carol devila,arad,timisoara,iasi are corrupted. You have to pay thousands just pass one exam. Cluj is really good, but requires high grades. I would advise you to do lot of research.
Peace out!
Hey there.. how did your sister apply to the university?? did she apply straight to university or through an agent ?

i am doing my residency in orthopaedics in constanta. THE tuition fees is 5000 euro. you also have to pay an application fee. Accomodation for a two bedroom flat for a month is about 200 - 250 Euro, 1 room - 150 Euro. You bills; Electricity, heating and internet is about 100 USD a month if its winter and 50USD if its summer.

However you must start searching on time as the good and cheap ones get easily taken before october due to new students and landlords changing their tenants.

transportation is quite cheap and the city is nice.

Hi, First thanks for replying but, secondly I was going to apply through EUNICAS and they stated that tuition fee was 3800 euros? Is this wrong? I am applying from the UK so how do I search for accomodation from here?And also, do you mind if I ask you what grades did you get in your Alevels if you did them in the UK? Thanks.

Hi!
So I would like to know if I have a chance of getting into Medical School in romania, and if so which ones?
I have an IB diploma but unfortunately when I was 16 and had to pick my subjects, I had no idea what i wanted to do for the rest of my life and so did not pick chemistry, physics, or bio for my final exams. I did get good grades in the subjects i did take though
I have some volunteer work in the medical field
I have a 2: 1 Bachelors degree for the UK in psychology with neuropsychology
After deciding that i wanted to become a doctor, I spent the last year of my bachelor self teaching myself IB level physics, chem and bio, which then allowed me to enroll into medical school in france.
Problem is that they have a numerus clausus system, where 1500 science students compete for 219 places to second year
Sadly and despite my efforts, I came just short of the numerus clausus and now have the choice between repeating the year in france for one last chance or applying to romania.
I have extensively studied anatomy, chemistry, biochem, physics, pharmacology, biology ect...over this part year.
Many thanks!!!!! Advice would be much appreciated on which universities I have the best chance with!

The information is wrong. The tuition fee is 5000 euro. It was just increased recently. We even had a discussion with the rector recently about it. For accomodation is dependent on what you want. Most people share with others and some stay alone. The requirements are just credits in Chemistry, Biology, Physics and English in O levels. If you have A levels is a plus for you. When you arrive you will take a test in Biology, chemistry and english.

HI all, I am thinking about applying to study medicine abroad (a bit late I know) and was wondering which country is the best to go to? A lot of this discussion has been about Romania but is that the best place to go to? I am interested in studying in Italy but I have been told it is very corrupt there, would it be better to study in Romania? And also is Eunicas a safe company to use to apply? I would really appreciate any information you have!

Oh thank you very much yes I emailed the uni and they gave me that exact fee figure. But, she hardly said anything about these tests you speak of? so, if you don't pass any of these tests is that it?
