    planning to study medicine in hungary

    Advertisements



    I am UK based student and planning to study medicine in Hungary . I am gathering very confusing information . I need to know which university is good and which one is bad . To be honest I dont how to start and where to go ? Reading some of texts in this forum has made me suspicious towards representatives . Along this information I would like to also know is there any financial support (loan) available for students ? More to this how I can find a cheap room ? Please as much as you can . I would like to thank every one in advance .
    Kind regards .
    Wally

    Hi som , good to meet someone from UK with the same hope . My prime intention was to study in Romania as the tuition fee is cheaper in Romania comparing to the rest of Euopean medical schools . After a lot of search , everything I found about Romanian universities was negative and all those negative thought and finding eventually put me off . Universities in Hungary are getting mixed reaction and surveys , although I am yet to think about my decision . It was just another set back when I heared from you that there is no support available for student out there . boy oh boy ...anyway please keep in touch . thanks for replying .
    Regards
    Wally

    Nice to hear from you wally, as for the negativity surrounding Romania may be true, however the benefits outweight the negatives and after extensive research i have decided to go to Romania and i will personally travelling this year to find out more. It is always better to study medicine in western europe if you have the option than eastern or central europe. You have the choice to study cheaper affordable as well as good standard of education which is recognised by the UK general medical council. Are you currently studying your A levels or undergraduate degree?

    Hi Som10 . Thanks for coming back . I have been offered a place at Medicine and Biomedical Science Access Course commencing this autumn . The length of course is a year and its very intensive . Having done this access course will certainly boosts the chance of getting to medical schools in the UK but I am 35 and most of career advisor I have come across believe that I cant

    Sorry Som10, the last text was sent to you unintentionally , here is the rest :
    that I cant over come this obstacle . It was then when I started looking for different route to studying medicine . What is bringing you to Romania ? I hope its not age restriction . I have heared that if you finish your studies in any European medical universities , you still have to sit for more test before you are qualified as a doctor in the UK . Living around different culture , giving away your hard erned money to an uncertain future whrere you dont have any legal support to back you up and more to that facing a cold hand shake to welcome you home from the UK' hospitals could be very stressful but I hope we can make it happen . I believe that being strong and working hard is the key to succuss . Dont you think ?
    Regards
    Wally

    hi wally, it is true that doing access course to medicine does not gurantee you a place in medicine in uk and obviously age is an issue but not an issue to pursue a career that you like at least not in east europe and if you study hard you can become a doctor any where in the world. I am 25 years of age but due to the compettitveness of uk medical school i ahve decided to study medicine in romania and you don't have to sit any exam when i come back to uk as romania is member of european union.

    Hi Wally,
    If I went to Hungary,I'g go to Budapest,Semmelweis university for me is the best,although Szeged is the best in Hungary according to Rankings....I know the program in Budapest and it is really good,I apprecciate it very much.As for loans,there is no loan available,just for Americans,and the fee is around 10 000 a year.Debrecen university os also very good,they have a very strong pre-clinical program,but the clinical rotations in Budapest are better,and If I'm not wrong,You can spend the last year in the UK o other E.U country,you can choose.
    According to the ranking,the best is Szeged,the second is Semmelweis(budapest) and the third is Debrecen,but I personally prefer Budapest,the program seems to be better and they have better clinical years...Anyaway,the curriculum is pretty much the same in All Hungary,so,anywhere you go,you'll receive the same kind of education,it just depends on the effort you put in.Budapest is more expensive,so,if money is the problem,You can go to Szeged.The university can help you arrange accomodation.In Szeged for example,you can rent an apartment in the Uni hall for about 250 U$$ a month.In Budapest a room costs about 300 a month.
    Good luck.

    Bulgaria

    For those thinking about going to Hungary, why not go to Bulgaria? It's half the price of Hungary. Just as good education I think.
