Hi,

I am currently 1st year at Plovdiv Medical University and kind of regret coming here because it’s not giving me the uni satisfaction. Standards are good here, no doubt! It has everything to provide for a student, but I genuinely don’t feel contented - it’s as if I need something more!

I looked into Masaryk Medical University and that seems like my perfect place; has everything to offer: nice and modern!

So wonder if anyone of you know anyone who has transferred into Masaryk Medical University from another European Medical School? Or does anyone know how to transfer into Masaryk 2nd year? Is it possible?

I know some of you will just go against Masaryk but I have done sufficient research to say it’s definitely a possible course and it’s purely dependent on those students if they want to waste time or actually work hard. Who said medicine is an easy course?!

Guys please be honest, it’s a big decision for me to move out!

Hey
Im a second year at masaryk. i can definitely say its a good place to really grow as a person, there's no such thing as the perfect place for everyone but it depends on the individual and the 'chemistry' one may have with it.
i didnt transfer but i know some who have and one came in 3rd and now is in the final year. she's probably graduated already haha.

it is possible to transfer to masaryk and IF you have the completed the courses of first year, you may be able to get an exemption and transfer directly to the second year. you must provide the masaryk student office with your plovdiv student transcript with all your completed first year exams.
as far as i know, first year modules (so 2 semesters worth) in masaryk are:
- Anatomy 1 and 2, <<YOU MUST HAVE PASSED ALREADY
- Biophysics (winter semester only),<<YOU MUST HAVE PASSED ALREADY
- Latin 1 and 2, <<YOU MUST HAVE PASSED ALREADY
- Czech Language 1 and 2, <<you would be behind a year with czech but most people are . we study it for 4 years=8 semesters.
- Biology 1 and 2, <<YOU MUST HAVE PASSED ALREADY
- First Aid(winter sem only),<<YOU MUST HAVE PASSED ALREADY
- Public Health (winter only) but you can still get into second year and take PHealth with the first years in the first semester!

If you haven't taken some of the modules I've listed, then due to the nature of second year module pre-requisites, you would be not allowed to take 1 or 2 modules.
For example, if you don't pass First Aid in first year, you can't do Nursing practice in 2nd year.
Or if you don;t pass Biology and Biophysics by the end of first year, then 2nd year physiology is not allowed until you finally pass them

I'm not sure how the first year in plovdiv is set out, but if it is anything similar to what i have listed, you should be fine

i hope what i've said made sense. reply me if u are unsure or need more info/advice!

Hi,

Thank you so much for your response! There is slight variation in the first year syllabus, we study:

-Anatomy
-Biology
-Chemistry
-Physics
-Cytology, Histology and Embryology
-Biophysics
-Bulgarian
-Latin

So when comparing it to your list, we haven’t done first aid, public health nor Czech language, and I think it will be a huge problem for me to transfer. Other thing that I can look at is ERASMUS exchange because Plovdiv Medical Univeristy is partnered with Masaryk so it shouldn’t be a problem at spending a semester abroad.

You're welcome.

Looking at your list of first year subjects, I think a transfer to the second year will definitely be possible!

I'll put a *star next to the ones you must have completed by the end of this year.
And I'll explain the other 3 you have mentioned that you have not done yet.

-Anatomy *
-Biology *
-Chemistry (not necessary for Masaryk transfer)
-Physics (not necessary for...)
-Cytology, Histology and Embryology * (we start Histo in the second semester of the 1st year, so you should be fine to get this even exempt! but pass the final before coming to masaryk) How many semesters do you study histo in your current uni??
-Biophysics *
-Bulgarian (not necessary for...)
-Latin *
the 3 subjects you don't have
FIRST AID - you can take this in Sept 2018 and take the 2nd year Nursing module in the spring semester. No sweat at all we have many students so some do it in the autumn, and the rest in spring sem. very easy to pass, no-one fails this. simple computer based mcq u can do at home!
PUBLIC HEALTH - it's fine , you can take it with the first years for 7 weeks (it's a short module ) and it is not a pre-requisite for anything.
CZECH - it's not an issue, many students come from non-czech unis, like hungary and they take czech from the beginning. there's no shame, no-one will think bad if you are behind in czech. czech is only a pre-req for czech. e.g pass Czech 1 > allowed to study Czech 2, pass Czech 2>allowed to study Czech 3, etc all the way to Czech 8. And it's a really enjoyable subject!

One more thing, anyone who transfers to Masaryk for any course must do the entrance exam. I think the one sat at Masaryk happened last Saturday and it's the only one but you may be able to find a course with a private company doing it in your home country! research it, or i can give you a link that has them mentioned if u want it.

Erasmus is an option but i dont know much about it, sorry
