    I've been thinking of applying for medicine in Poland and Hungary, reason being the grade boundaries are lower, its relatively cheaper and i think i'd have a better chance of getting in...i also like the idea of learning new things from a different culture and also meeting new people from different parts of the world. is it a good idea or nah?

    Yes. I'm actually from Korea, currently studying in the UK. Studying abroad is very enjoyable and is a great opportunity to experience and learn about different cultures. Medicine courses in Poland and Hungary are in English, so you wouldn't have any language barrier issues.

    Another thing to note is that you can practise medicine in the UK from medical qualifications from Poland and Hungary.

    I would say those schools would be a sensible back-up. If I were you, I would apply to them at the same time as applying to UK schools. Overall, I think it wouldn't be such a bad idea.

    Meh, if you cannot get into medicine in the UK and you are dead set on becoming a doctor, then you have no other choice but to go abroad. Obviously, don't do it otherwise.

    I'm from Hungary so if you have any questions, feel free to ask, not specifially about medicine as I am not a med student, although if you are looking at Hungary, Semmelweis Uni is the most well known for Medicine and it's in the capital as well, other cities are small and more like towns. If you want to go to Hungary, definitely try to get into Semmelweis uni.

    Hey, studying medicine in Poland is a good choice. Whilst some of the courses offered by Polish unis will not give you a great career, after graduating from medicine you will have bunch of opportunities. Anyway, which exams are you passing? IB, A-Levels or sth else?
    If you have any questions, ask me. I am Polish so I think I can help you a lot xx

    In my opinion, you should consider Kraków and Poznań as first choices. Definitely Kraków would be the best one, you will be provided with the best tutors and generally high level education. Furthermore, Kraków is a beautiful european city, so I am sure you will enjoy your stay here Also, the Jagiellonian University in Kraków is one of the best ones in the whole country. I keep my fingers crossed for you to get accepted. Despite this, Poznań is also a good place to study medicine, but if I were you I will choose Kraków Btw. take a look at University of Warsaw and their course in medicine.
    It is tough, but I am sure you will get by. Medicine is difficult everywhere

    Hi, I would make the application to the Polish universities of medicine. Can you please give me some information. I would like to take courses in English and are very hesitant because I read the news that I was scared. It 'true that there is a high number of students who withdraw because the courses are very difficult than English? My degree will be valid in England and I can 'also do specialization?
