    Charles university or Jagiellonian university

    Advertisements



    Hi!
    I´m looking for the best physician education in central europe since the admission in sweden is simply too hard.

    I have looking for a while and did end up with Charles and Jagiellonian as the two best universities in central europe. Do you Agree? which one of them is the best?

    Greetings

    It's really hard to say. Both are very good universities. Although I've recently heard of two or three students from Krakow who got into a plastic surgery residency (uber-competitive) in the US. But they were from the 4 year medical program.

    Try visiting their websites and compare them on all aspects (the curricula, the structure, the capmus, the location, the facilities etc.)

    Good luck

    p.s. There's no real way to compare these two univs. as both are in excellent academic standing (in Central Europe) unless a student has transferred from Charles to Jagiellonian or vice-versa. Also the 3rd faculty of Charles is a Scandinavian haven and has tons and tons of swedes and norwegians (I'm assuming they've chosen that faculty because the teaching system is similar to that of the Scandinavian schools ---using a PBL approach. So I would recommend that).

    Thank you for the reply shrey.
    I knew that it would be hard to know which university is the best since there´s no really 100% way to do the ranking. Maybe w

    But I wonder where you study, your location is at prag. Do you study at Charles?

    I wouls apreciate if more could comment this thread so I might know more about charles and jagiellonian

    Greetings

    Yes I do study at the First Faculty of Medicine at Charles. Unfortunately the international threads on this forum are not so active as they were a while back. Perhaps you can try posting the same thing under the polish medical schools thread?? (specifically under Jagiellonian).

    It would also be wise to visit these schools to assess things for yourself. I've long leaned that the environment and not only the academic excellence of the school imparts on your learning process.Discuss with as many students as possible unsupervised (especially those from your own country) about their assessment and general impression of the schools.
    Coming from europe, I don't think this would not be a huge task for you.
    Good luck.

    So what are the differences between these 3 faculties? Any major difference?

    1st and 2nd faculties are very similar in their methods of teaching but the 3rd faculty uses the PBL approach...which is quite hard. This is the reason why quite a lot of people fail. Nevertheless, the First fac. has the highest attrition rates because there are many subjects to pass and it's more like a pyramid system (only a few get to the top).
