    thanks alot this really helped me out!! by the way how is the university atmosphere and the city itself?
    The students on the English course are from all over the world and they are generally friendly and help each other out. There's usually always something to do in Brno, one party or the other. The erasmus students are usually partying most weekends, so you can always go to their parties. I'm not really into the party scene, but if that's your thing, then you should be quite satisfied here.

    I'm a teetotaler as well and I haven't had any problems. The longest holidays are Christmas and then summer. We don't really get half terms or anything like that, but you can always visit home on some weekends. We don't have easter holidays either. For example, we only have next week monday off and that's it. The length of your Christmas and summer holidays depend on when you book your exams. If you book your exams for early dates, then you can go home early and have a longer holiday than those who book their exams for a later time.

    HI wanted to ask, i've booked in for the exam for Dentistry. I just wanted to make sure that the course is accredited by the GDC, I know it says it on the site and stuff but is there any conformation from the GDC from their site that the Mddr degree is accepted here in the UK? Also what is the procedure, if god willing, you do graduate? Do you complete DF1 and DF2 here in the UK or have to undergo training years in Czech? Also for U.K candidates, is there an actual guarantee that this degree will make us able to practice here? The U.K are participating in the elcetion/referendum in 2015 to still be part of U.K, I know a lot of people here are against being part of the EU and as a result the degree may actually be useless here in the UK by the time you graduate. Just thinking of these problems so that I dont face them in the future.

    Hey there dude, how much does the cost come to per year. That's everything, including course costs, accomodation, living costs (e.g food,clothes) and travel. Thank you.

    There really is no definite answer to this question, because the cost of living would definitely vary from person to person. However, i'll just give you a rough draft of the costs. All the values are rounded up, so the actual cost might be slightly less.

    -School fees for a year = £8166 (you can pay this in 2 installments. 1st installment in the 1st semester and the 2nd installment in the 2nd semester. Both installments are exactly half of the total fees).

    -Rent for a month (if you're living in halls) = £130 (there's usually a £5 -£8 difference from month to month)

    - Bus & tram pass for 3 months = £23 (so about £92 for the whole year, but obviously you will be spending 2-3 months on holiday (depending on how long your holiday is), so it's going to be less than £92 for the whole year)

    - Groceries for a month would really depend on the person and how much you eat, but I almost never spend more than £30 for a month's groceries, even if I go shopping multiple times.

    - Any other costs would depend on the individual. So maybe an extra £50pm to spend on whatever you want.

    (PS, i'm a woman).

    I know what you mean about wanting to fund yourself! I'm thinking of looking into graduate loans etc just to see if i can borrow what i need! I think this fear and doubt is normal just because its such a big change!

    I don't intend on doing anything over the weekend either lol! Oo yes thanks! I'll keep those unis in mind in case i need them come october!

    I want to go on the course but an extra £1950 is holding me back! I'm 22

    I am filling the form out atm, it suggested on one of the documents to send a photocopy of our A-level certificates too, did you do that aswel?

    Not the best way to spend the Easter Monday filling out a long form! ha

    Oh no lol when are you thinking of sending it? I've just sent off the final payment

    Here's a link for the exam questions on the website http://www.med.muni.cz/index.php?id=1381

    I've been told the model questions are the better ones to look at lol

    This is my first time applying abroad, I decided after the Oct deadline that i wanted to apply hence why instead of doing nothing for another year i thought to apply abroad! I only applied once for the UK after a levels so may try again this coming oct but i'm not sure! Have you applied to the UK?

    Final payment? With the application I thought you just sent the £250? You send a photocopy of your passport too?

    Ahh awesome cheers will have a glance at it tomorrow, have a fresh start at some preparation.

    Yeah I applied for the first time last year for 2013 entry, I applied to dentistry but only had one interview at Leeds. I got rejected after the interview and couldn't believe it. I have requested feedback becuase i had the same answers as another applicant but he got in and i was rejected. So i doubt there was much in it.

    Do you work atm?

    Hi bunicorncases,

    It's medicine/dentistry, what do you expect? If you get in, they are not just going to hand you a degree after 6 years, without hard work and dedication. You have to work for it. If you don't, you will fail out or have to repeat. Like I said i'm in the second semester(1st year) and after the first semester, a few students did not carry on to the 2nd semester and that is how it usually is from semester to semester, students drop out. It is incredibly easy to fall behind because of the work load and that's probably the worse thing that you can do, because it is very difficult to catch up if you do fall behind.

    There are quite a bit of Asian students and fewer black students in my year. I don't know how many there are in the medical faculty or the whole of Masaryk university.

    Yes but you have to pay £1950 admin fee before the exam and i thought i may as well pay it now rather than leave it then forget and turn up at the exam like a lemon lol yes i sent a photocopy of my passport although once you send the app with £250 they send you a few more forms and an invoice for the £1950 payments and there's a passport detail section

    ahh that's such a shame especially as you got an interview! hopefully the feedback will be helpful! Yes i am working atm trying to save up as much as poss you?

    Ahh brilliant, I will get that sent off today ( was supposed to have it sent off Monday). ha never mind!

    I spoke to a friend and he recommended going on the course again, just for a week he said it would be worth it. Instead of wasting time revising around all areas they can train you up within a week to the passing standard. Just thought I would mention that.

    Yeah I do some auditing...sucks big time lol Will you go over to Czech to look around at the University?
