    As far as I know there are no access to medicine courses (or similar) abroad, I don't know how to be more specific. Is there a reason you can't do one in the UK?

    I see. Only thing I know about taking up a medicine course here in the UK is that it will drain your wallet off from the expenses. Other than that, I can't speak of the quality because I have no Idea, my friend. Aren't there other medicine courses available abroad? I'm pretty sure of it, though. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    There are medicine courses available abroad. Access to Medicine is a separate entity - a 1 year course for mature students who don't have appropriate A-levels etc, and AFAIK UK only.

    Thanks for making that clear @Helenia. I appreciate it

    Not to discourage studying abroad in general (imo it's one of the best things you can do) but for medicine specifically, you might end up doubling the time you spend towards your license.

    How, exactly? Medical courses in the rest of the EU are six years long - only one year longer than UK ones (and the same as UK ones with an intercalated degree, though without said intercalated degree of course).

    Edit: Though I probably wouldn't advise looking to study in the EU until we've established whether we'll all be EU citizens in the near future...

    This is just what I mean, actually. Study where you plan to practice. On the other hand, my brother planned to move to the EU so he delayed his studies. The move never pushed through and he could have been done by now if he had just started here earlier.
