“Pros & Cons” at a glance
Prague never lets tourists leave without their beautiful memories, be it summer or winter. Its another fame lasts with the medical schools such as “Charles University,” with 6-year and 4-year degree programs offered in English.
French universities do NOT offer any English medical degree programs. The schools are notorious for their extremely selective and competitive academic programs. All foreign students must go through with “Pre-admission,” after which their first year (PACES) filters out 80% for the 2nd year programs.
Poland is one of the largest countries in Europe and has quite many English-taught medical universities. The medical schools in Warsaw and in Lublin are one of the better known across the European Union and attract quite many students from US and Taiwan. Western part of Poland has very close and easy access to Germany, which makes it a little more popular to study in.
Romania has joined the EU quite recently and been recognized to be one of the fast-growing industry and education, thanks to its historical connection with both western Europe and western Asia. Medical schools have been offering quite well-managed programs in English (and in German.) Universities like Targu Mures are highly active in “exchange programs” for students, instructors and researchers, especially with Germany and Italy.
For many students coming from the Americas, Spain (and Portugal) can be more attractive than the others, simply because their medical universities offer the degree programs in “Spanish (*and Portuguese, respectively.)” In the mean time, there are a handful of “English” programs are offered but require all students to speak Spanish after 2nd year with no further English instructions at all.
Naturally, the United Kingdom is highly well known for its “prestigious” colleges and universities, not to mention those “Top Tier” medical schools around the country. Basically, the tuition fees are around the same range as the US medical schools, and all foreign students are required to have either successful A-Level completion or additional Foundation Year (*in case of the applicants from non-British secondary education system.)
