Thanks for the reply. Do you remember which agency you went through?(Original post by MedicDee)
I originally went through an agency. There are 7 faculties in the Czech Republic who offer medical degrees taught in English. I narrowed my choices down to 3 or them and luckily ended up in Prague which was my first choice. There's students on the course from all over the world. The majority in my year are from Germany and Sweden. You learn Czech from the 1st year, it's not too advanced but enough so you can communicate with patients during clinical years.
Brexit is a good question - I personally don't think it will be a problem as the UK have a shortage of doctors so I'm sure the UK government wont make it difficult for British citizens to come back and practice. Who knows though! Time will tell.
Is studying medicine abroad a bad idea? Watch

I study medicine abroad and think its probably the best decision I've made. I personally applied through an agency called Tutelage and they handled everything for me and were pretty quick with the paperwork and stuff.
The medicine course is in English but they teach you the local language in class. For the English course, students are predominantly International. You would be expected to know basic terms in the local language just in case the patients don't know English.

I think it is great idea and after doing a lot of research I am applying to Czech Republic. The facilities at the Czech universities are fantastic and I am looking forward to the experience of really living in other country.
Plus if i graduate I will have a degree that is recognised all over the world.
