    Hey are you from the uk?
    Just wanted to know more about the course and the university itself ? I was interested but was just a bit apprehensive about the whole level of the course like the uni itself looks a bit old and outdated?
    Do you enjoy it and would you recommend it? Are there alot of other students from UK there? How is it to live there? And how is the travelling back and forth?

    Thanks alot

    Well, Yes I am from the UK and i am a first year vet student at Trakia Uni. The course is not too difficult for me at the moment, I did A-levels and the chemistry and biology is pretty similar. Likewise most subjects are easy at the moment however anatomy is the hardest. That's just because it is one big memory test and I'm not very good at memorizing things! I have a friend who did a diploma rather than a levels and he is finding it a bit more difficult but is coping well. There is also a qualified dentist on the course but he is pretty smart so hes doing fine. The Uni itself is old and outdated and a giant maze! However they have a farm not far away and if you can learn with the older equipment then you will be able to work in any circumstances that come your way! I am really enjoying it and would recommend it however it can be difficult living in such a different country. In total there are 4 students from the UK and about 20 Greek students in my year and we are split into 2 classes of about 12. The Greeks are all really friendly and know English well enough to do a vet course in it! I live in an apartment with one of the English guys on the course and we live better than most of my friends in England do for less! Not many people here speak English but you can get by on hand gestures! I haven't been home since the start of the semester so I haven't done any traveling yet however I will be flying back next week for Christmas! The holidays are a bit rubbish but we do get a long lime for summer and three weeks for Christmas.
    I hope this helps and keep the questions coming!

    Just to throw it out there, there's also UVM Kosice

    We have a 4 year post BSc course and fees are cheaper than Budapest. They've just opened the new €7million Small Animal hospital, Ruminants was rebuilt this year, Equine and Pigs a couple years ago. We also got our EAEVE Approval and Accreditation this year too.

    Wherever you go I'd recommend visiting and speak to some of the older students there. I was stuck between two universities and after speaking to lots of Final years my decision was firmly made.

    Good luck, I'm sure you'll have a great time studying abroad!
