Europe offers "Cheap & Good"

💬 Common Features

Just to give you a brief idea of pros and cons for both Italian and Hungarian medical universities, here we post two quick-fact-comparisons. In short, each has unique characteristics, which may or may not be appealing.

The most common features of EEMU (European English Medical Universities) are:

  • 6-year programs
  • taught in English
  • accreditation by nearly the same countries worldwide
  • with guaranteed EU accreditation and medical license
  • USMLE preparatory/eligible programs

A. German English Medical University,

B. Italian Medical Universities (18 programs active, as of Jan 2021), or

C. Hungarian Medical Universities (4 universities with Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine, as of Jan 2021.)

💬 Pros and Cons

Eventually, it is highly recommended to prepare “BOTH” countries due to the following reasons:

  1. Admission Subjects are similar (*if Italian candidates are well-prepared, they can apply for Hungarian exams more easily)
  2. Admission Timelines are different (*Feb-Jun for Hungarian while Italian exam is held in Sep; Italian private universities have exams in Feb – May)
  3. Italian universities are “far more competitive than Hungarian ones” (*take Hungarian universities to secure your position in case of failing from Italian ones)
  4. Italian universities are “far cheaper than Hungarian ones” (*a variety of scholarships and funding options available for all students at Italian universities)


  1. Easier entry misleads  to “repeating” years, to the students without “Strict Self-Disciplines”
  2. English is NOT the ONLY language ☞ Local languages should be learned before the 3rd year for clinical practice and clerkship
  3. German hospitals offer jobs for non-EU graduates, ONLY IF they speak German (B2 – C1)
  4. Europe has TOO MANY BEAUTIFUL ATTRACTIONS that may interfere studying in spring and fall
