Anybody know anything about schools in Italy that teach in English? They're really cheap which is a huge plus.

I'm studying at the university of Pavia in Italy and there are several other cities that are offering courses in English now. Milan has two schools, as does Rome, Napoli and Bari have one each. The education is up to the Western European standards, the tuition fees are almost nothing compared to the Eastern European schools' rip offs and the quality of life is pretty great. Not to mention, studying medicine in Italy sounds so much cooler than studying medicine in, say, Romania or Bulgaria.

Just to clarify a few things, how much do you pay per year there?

I strongly recommend you to avoid studying medicine in Italy.

The Medical Schools that offer courses taught in English are almost all newly-founded, and the preparation they offer is pretty poor compared to the courses taught in Italian.
On the other hand, getting into an Italian medical school is almost impossible nowadays, since almost 80.000 people try to gain the admission every year, and the places available in the whole country are less than 9.000 for the courses taught in Italian, and about 160 for the ones taught in English. Out of these 160, only 77 are reserved for EU citizens.
Beyond that, you will have to take a ridiculous entrance exam, which is almost impossible to pass (since many people usually cheat while taking the test, etc).

Here is why I would not recommend you to study here in Italy: generally talking, the universities in this country have completely lost the importance they had in the past, and the preparation they offer nowadays is absolutely poor!
