    Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows what the repercussions may be of the UK leaving the EU in regards to studying medicine abroad in European countries such as Romania, Bulgaria etc? For example, will the degree obtained over there still allow you to practice here, or will there be changes to the tuition fees?
    Thanks for any help

    I think the degree will still be GMC recognised, but as we wold be non eu students the tuition fees would be significantly higher. Not 100% sure tho

    I'm worried about this too because it could get harder for EU graduates to start practicing Medicine in the UK after they graduate. Most medical schools in places like Romania and Bulgaria charge the same tuition fees for students from EU and non-EU countries, so nothing to worry about there. Currently all medical graduates from non-EU countries have to sit the PLAB (a notoriously difficult exam from what I've heard) to practice Medicine in the UK. Now that we've left the EU, the GMC could start asking every foreign medical graduate to sit the PLAB, regardless of which country they studied in. Or more likely they will be bringing in a UK Medical Licensing Exam for every graduate to sit.

    This article explains a little bit more, but at this point in time it's all speculation and guessing. Things will only become clearer only when the UK government finalises all the details of Brexit e.g. whether we stay in the EEA or not.
