Which universities have you guys heard of?

The one's i've heard of the most from UK are the Czech republic ones including first faculty Charles university and second faculty Charles university which are in Prague.

I've also heard of Masaryk university in the city of Brno in czech republic.

Hey,

There are couple in Poland too, but most of them are for American and Canadian citizens. Let's see, one in Cracow, Poznan School Of Medical Sciences, Wroclaw and Lublin.

Yeh i've heard of them.

Most of these universities are getting pretty popular since many people want to do medicine, and a lot of competition, so people think of somewhere else.

A lot of UK students now go to Czech Republic to do medicine.

Cool, you're in the 4 Yr MD course?

How is the course there? Is it Oral examination or written?

Also how are the staff at the university like professors? Are they friendly?

And how is the City itself?

From what i've read on the other forums Poznan medical school has a very good reputation.

MAJID, HOMEZ, NOWADAYS MOST OF THE EASTEND PAKI CREW IS HEADING 2 ROMANIA OR BULGARIA. COZ THESE 2 REFUGEE STATES R NOW PART OF EU- FULLY. THESE TWO COUNTRIES IN NEED OF DOLLAR, SO ADMISSION IS MINOR. AND THE FEES AND LIVING EXPENSES ARE LOW. PLUS THERE ARE A LOT OF FRESHIES FROM PAKILAND WHICH U CAN TERRORIZE ETC. POLAND IS NOT FOR US. ONE OF ME BOYS WENT TO POZNAN FOR FIRST YR. SAID HE COULDNT SURVIVE DER. FULL OF CANADIAN US (ANTI NAZI) BACKGROUND PEEPZ. HUNGARY I HEARD IS OK, ALTHOUGH QUITE EXPENSIVE NOW. DONT DO DENTISTRY IN CZECH. U NEED TO DO 3 YEAR TRAINING TO GET ON GDC. SLOVAKIA, LITUANIA, MALTA IS FIT FOR DENTISTRY.

ANY MOR QS THEN HOLLA.

Hahahahaa that was funny

That's true that they are now part of EU so the degree is recognised and it's cheap compared to places like Prague and Poland.

The problem bro with these places is not about the degree, but it's about settling there and living there for 5,6 years. That's what you gotta think about. If you believe you can stick it out there in them countries, then it's a good choice. But it's a big change to study in Romania compared to UK!!!

have not been there. studying at the moment. seen the city on the net though. looks kinda plain n boring tbh. uni looks very strict from reading the brochure etc. ne way, classes start on the 20th august. see what happens. have to try to respect the teacherz etc, heard they r kinda old fashioned in that respect. hope the teaching is up to scratch, otherwise it will be an uphill struggle from day 1. inshallah it will b ok n i will pass.

is it a good idea to go there when you havn't seen the place? because most students advise you to check out the place before you start university to make sure you will like it.

Most UK students I think go to Czech Republic so why not try there?

i hope things go ok!

Few things I have trouble finding are:
What are the GPA requirements/MCAT (if required) to get into an Eastern European school like say The one in Poland or Czech? I went on SO MANY of their sites and they seem to be very VAGUE! I want exact numbers lol and Also do they look at your science GPA and cumulative? DO they look at the Required courses GPA? Do they look at particular years (i.e. best 2 years) It's really hard finding these info and I want to be sure I know before I apply.

The other question is, I"m little confused here, the grad med programs (for international students who did undergrad in North America) are they usually 4 years or 6? And do any of them include residency or not? THis is something I have trouble understanding, anyone care to explain?

wats goin on majid. i took ur advice n checkd out debrecen. it looks pretty sound. good facilities. the teachers are quite helpfull, at the moment! the dorms r nice- no joke! the people seem quite friendly n easy to get along with. i found it at least satisfactory.

the only con is that there seems very little passtimes. wtf do the students do wen not studying?
the other negative being that biophysics is half the first senester. i have no physics background. i dun bio, chem n media stud a levels. as in pysycho.

anyway, allah malik heh- inshallah will hit the course like a possesed hippo. tc.
