    Google translate the article, its worth reading in your situation.

    Basically, the UPJS english program is Garbage.

    Slovakia is the Poorest country in the EU (read about the gem of kosice - LUNIK IX). Bribes are seen as an everyday way of life. I've had professors ask me for money (doc. MUDr. Roman Beňačka, CSc., mim. prof. even asked me to bring a receipt!) in front of an entire classroom of colleagues without a hint of shame. There are many "student representative agents" that work with the TWO people that deal with all registrations/student affairs. These are usually mafia types (bbc.com/news/world-europe-43226567) who will pay your bribes. The bribe culture is so deep you will pay extra money just to get normal things done and they STILL won't be done properly because they will use the language barrier to their advantage ($$$).

    Classrooms are overcrowded. Hospitals have been pillaged and operate on bare necessities. The teacher's English is laughable and you are better off learning Russian first if you want to live/learn here.

    Medical school is a lot of work and extremely difficult. If you are from the US or Canada and looking to return home after completing your education I highly suggest you avoid this place.
