    Well given the choice between Romania and Georgia, I would definitely choose Romania as it's a EU country which poses several advantages for you in the future. I would suggest that you look into the Central European Dentistry programs (ie. in Czech Republic, Poland or Hungary) or even Croatia (even though it's not part of the EU, it will be soon and it has very good ties with other universities in Europe and the US).

    Tbilisi seems a bit shady to me because I recently checked out their site (after having read your post) and I saw their list of international partners and some of the universities they mentioned don't even have a medical faculty in them (like the Austrian University and Stranton in the US). So I wouldn't rely much on that. The best way is to only visit the place.

    But like I said, I would definitely recommend that you look into the Central European schools and the Eastern European ones which are part of the EU (Romania and Bulgaria) and those that will be sooner or later (like Croatia). The central european schools of these 3 groups are quite expensive so you can omit that option if you want.

    Hey there, you're welcome

    NO>>> NEVER JOIN THROUGH AN AGENT!!!! It's a waste of time and money and you don't get very many benefits. To be frank, the program at Charles University is quite good but it's also quite expensive.

    But I'm not quite sure what you mean by "Masters"...does it mean you want to do a PhD. degree or an apprenticeship program/ residency followed by a fellowship? I can tell you more based on those details....

    Hey there destiny96, the postgraduate course is Europe is usually referred to the Ph.D courses offered in English and Native language/s. What you're looking for is an apprenticeship which is sort of like a residency that one enters into and then later gets into a fellowship (where he/she specialized in one specific branch).

    Regarding apprenticeship programs, they pay you enough to support yourself (but in some Eastern European countries, the pay is just too low). I would first recommend that you look in to Western European countries like Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, and France. These countries are all highly competitive and require you to write competitive exams to get into their programs.

    I should also mention that if you are interested in doing an apprenticeship program or a fellowship, you have to have a very good command of the language as you will be communicating with patients on a daily basis. In fact the western European countries will go a step ahead and look at the standardized language proficiency exam that you've taken for that specific country.

    Many universities offer a 10month - 1year courses for foreign medical graduates which incudes general conversational language + medical aspect of the language. Some courses are longer in length and the end of the course, you will need to take the proficiency test to prove your command of the language. Once this is over, then you have to compete for a spot in the apprenticeship programs with the rest of the graduates (and there is always a preference of EU graduates followed by those who've studied in an EU country or or European countries and finally the international medical graduates).

    So as you can see, the process is quite hard and time-consuming but nevertheless do-able. But I wouldn't really recommend you to look into Easter European apprenticeship programs as they're really not well recognized and their pay is horrible and just not worth it.
