Hi everyone, I’m Hani and I’m a first year at Dnipro Medical Institute in Ukraine. It’s recently becoming a hotspot for British students, mainly due to graduate entry, pricing and large British community.

Ask me anything!

There may be a large British student community there but how many of them actually make it to the end of the course, graduate and become doctors in the UK?

Where is the filter point for students who haven’t done well enough to progress? Some universities in Eastern Europe put this filter in 1st or 2nd year to cut down the numbers.

What’s the level of difficulty of exams? You’re all making a big commitment of time, money and moving to a new country - it would be silly to do that if the exams are stupidly difficult and deceptive like they are in Czech Republic for example.

The university has already been succesful in graduating doctors that end up working in the UK. *Personally*, I know one individual but I also know that there a lot more that I don't personally know. The GMC accept the university, so it comes down to the individuals passing the tests from the GMC (currently PLAB but will be UKMLA),

I don't really like the use of the phrase filter point... but I understand where you're coming from. In year 3 there is the national medical (or dental) KROK-1 exam. Standardised across the whole country, a big exam that every medical and dental student have to pass to proceed onto following years. They give you a few opportunities to resit. In year 6 (or 5 for dentistry) there is KROK-2 which is similar to KROK-1 but focuses more on the clinical side of things. Both of these must be passed for graduation. I see it more as setting higher standards for students than intentionally used to filter people out.

The exams I've had are as challenging as they should be. They test us a lot here really keeping us on our toes. If you fail an exam, there are opportunities to resit but you cannot pass the subject and obtain the necessary credits without having passed everything. If you study, you will pass. If you don't, you will fail. It's fairly black and white because of how they pass/fail us. They grade us 1-5, 5 being the highest score and 3 being a pass. It's not that difficult to get a 3, but it should raise alarm bells in your head that you should work harder. So to answer your question, it's not that difficult to get a 3, but quite difficult to get a 5.

Hope that answers everything and thanks for the good questions

in your opinion, how much time do you think should be invested in studying for dentistry? Also, do you think the support that is provided from medlinks is effective?
