    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.
    Thanks for the reply. Do you remember which agency you went through?

    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 study abroad too and it was probably the best decision I've ever made. I applied through Tutelage aswell and they literally took care of the whole application process and even flew out with me to settle me in and get accommodation.

    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.
    Hi, What grades do they accept to study medicine? Many thanks!

    In my opinion it's a really bad idea. Facilties terrible. You really need to learn the language for clinical and they have classes especially made which you need to pass a test for, so medicine with a level latin classes (terrible). 6 Years, so one extra useless year (fail 2 subjects in first year you get kicked out). Its also much harder to pass medicine abroad because you fail your out, but countries like uk, usa they give you retakes in the summer.
    Thats not true, i'm a 2nd year medical student at a university in romania. They allow resits too, they hardly ever kick anyone out.
