    Hi, I am looking for help on the admissions procedure and deadlines for applying to study medicine in Bucharest. There is little and confusing information on the university's website and speaking to someone in their admissions team proved to be a costly and futile exercise.
    I am appealing to current international students, maybe you could share your experience.

    You do realize that you'll have to learn Romanian ?
    The uni might actually be quite good but coming to Romania clearly isn't a good idea , there is a reason why Romanian doctors are leaving to work in western countries. Trust me I am from Romania , you wouldn't want to deal with the corruption from our health system and having to learn Romanian, which as far as I know from others is hard to learn, just to go back to your home country seems like a rather bad idea. My honest advice is to find another country to study in.

    Thank you Andrei. The option to study in Eastern Europe is really an insurance in case I am not successful in my application to study in the UK.
    There is only a 2-year window when you can apply to study medicine here, and if unsuccessful during this time, the only other option would be to study for at least 3 years a health related degree and apply as a graduate. Even then it is very hard to get a place.
    So yes, Romania is an option and since my parents are from Romania, it would make a lot of sense for me to study there.

    The application process requires you to go and take a chemistry and biology exam at the University you are applying to, somewhere at the end of July. You will get accepted by the scores of the exams combined. The students from Romania are applying for university only after they get their Baccalaureate results, at the beggining of July. So the only thing you have to do before then is practicing for the Chem and Bio exams I would get some preparatory books for those if I were you. Indeed, there are a lot of issues with the medical system and the government, but the country is extremely beautiful! It is also a billion times more affordable than the UK, in terms of the student buget, and there are plenty of opportunities to study abroad for a semester or two, with scolarships if you have good grades. I'm a Romanian too, and I missed my country every day while I studied abroad for a few months

    Thank you for this. I was considering applying as a foreign student as only having my A levels in the UK this year, I will not have time to study for both types of exams. In addition you I will not have any certificate to prove I finished secondary education here, since A level results are not available until August and certificates are not released until October.

    I perceive this will be a problem, not having a certificate to be able to apply with, whether I apply as Romanian or foreign student.
    Not sure who can help me find this info anywhere!
