    Masaryk University in Brno or Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin??

    Advertisements



    Hey guys,

    I got admitted to Masaryk University of Medicine in Brno and Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin.
    I am really trying to figure out which university would be most suited for me, but for now I dont have that much information about these universities.

    Do have some good/bad informations or any preferences? Which university would be your choice?
    Thank you

    I'm going to say masaryk university because i'm starting there in september. I don't know much about Jassenius, so I don't have anything(good or bad) to say about it. I chose masaryk after passing the entrance examinations because it has high quality, trustworthy and very involved staff(according to my family member who also goes there and they're in their 2nd year) The university has high calibre equipments and infrastructures, according to research one of the best not just in Czech republic but in Europe. From what my family member and other students already at the uni say, the course is incredibly rigorous(as should be expected of most medicine courses) but definitely not impossible. From what i've seen of Brno, it has a lot of students and I think I read somewhere that it is referred to as a "student city". It is also a lot quieter/calmer than most major cities, which can be a good thing as there are less distractions to your studies. Personally, I appreciate that because growing up in London makes me appreciate a quieter study environment. That is not to say it is a ghost city because it's far from that. The scenery is very beautiful and there's also quite a bit to get into, stuff like hiking(if you're into stuff like that), nice restaurants, cinemas(didn't personally go to one, but I was told they have cinemas and you can see the movies in English), etc. So iif you do choose masaryk, I hope to see you there in september :-)

    Thank you for your quick and detailed response.

    All of the things you mentioned sound really good, but I am a little bit worried about the drop out rate. I heard after the first two years about 50 % of the students were gone. I mean I am going to learn very hard, I am sure about that, but I don't want to waste a whole year (and of course the money) because the professors want to cut the group in half in two years.
    Maybe I am overreacting and I am going to be fine if you I am willing to work very hard.

    Attrition rates tend to be quite high for medical schools with more lenient entry requirements. I don't believe the professors are deliberately chopping students off. I think it's more of a case that at the beginning there is a very large number of students; some of whom might not necessarily want to study medicine, are very immature and so are not prepared to take on a course that requires much dedication; might figure out while they are studying the course that they really do not like medicine or are not well suited to the course, etc etc This means that the more students they admit, the more likely it is that students from the aforementioned groups would be part of those admitted. So those students either drop out on their own accord or fail out and transfer to another school or "insert alternative".

    Bravo, you have hit the nail on the head with this post.

    One or 2 good students do get kicked out through bad luck but really if you work hard and have half a brain you will be fine.

    Hi. I'm looking for a tenant to my apartment in Martin - Slovakia town center, close to the faculty buildings, faculty hospital, shops, restaurants and bars. As I know, the faculty is not offering hostel to foreign students for the entire year, just for the studies preparation during summer holidays. Are you not interested? Check details and contacts on my page ma-skr.webnode.cz

    Are you not interested? Never mind, just don't forget to write down my web page address to your smart phone, so you can help to your new mates in Martin to find their apartment!
