    Hey guys,
    I've come across a few forums relating to students interest in studying Medicine and Dentistry in Bulgaria and Romania.
    I am a current Medical student at Sofia Medical University, Bulgaria.
    I have a great insight into the process, and what's it like studying in Bulgaria.
    So if any of you guys are interested in studying in Bulgaria or Romania, free to pm me. I will be more then happy to help in answering any questions you may have.

    Do you plan on doing residency in the UK after graduation? If yes, how do you apply to residency as a graduate from a non-UK university?

    Yes, of course. Bulgaria and Romania Medical and Dental degrees are globally recognized and accredited by the GMC and GDC.
    So once you have completed your 6th year of the degree, you basically just register with the relevant council in the UK.
    If you have any further questions, please pm me, and I'll be sure to get back to you with a reponse.

    I am not a representative of any agency. I am simply a student who has been through the process, so I have a good insight what the Medical Universities would want. I am willing to help other students who are interested in studying Medicine and Dentistry in Bulgaria or Romania.

    Hi what reputable agency can one use to apply or how doesone apply directly to the school? I was looking at Med Student Advisor online but their informationI'd not up to date but they reply emails in good time. I'm not sure about their credibility since their reviews are from years back.

    Best agency would be Medical Doorway it is free too! They deal with the most prestigious universities, i.e. in Czech Republic or Hungary. You can apply through Study Medicine Europe but be aware they will be costly and you are restricted to only Romania and Bulgaria, where there are some problems, for example recently it came on the news that Plovdiv University accepts more students than they have spaces; there were students standing during lectures simply because there were no spare seats, etc.

    But yes Bulgaria and Romania both give you the same degree and they are equally recognised in the world, so you don't need to worry too much about degrees, but please do research into these Uni's in Romania and Bulgaria (it can be a bit dodgy).

    I am applying for University of Debrecen and Prague First Faculty through Medical Doorway. Good luck for you application! Any problems, do contact me.

    Bear in mind all graduates wanting to practise in the UK may have to sit the same exam in the future which UK students will have been working towards for 5 years

    Hi there! Obviously you need your 3 a levels at good grades to get in, but what about other entry examinations? Did you have to sit the IMAT/BMAT/equivalent? Thanks!
