    which medical school suits me?

    Advertisements



    hi everyone, i searched before making this thread but i didn't find any updated information regarding my question.
    i wanna study medicine abroad, preferably in netherland, sweden, finland, denmark, norway or UK that have international students who learn medicine in english.
    i live in iran and have a simple diploma (no academic degree) and can spend about 10-11000$ for tuition fee. (less better because this is kinda my maximum budget)
    any help?
    p.s i don't have any problem to speak or write in english.

    Foreign medical students are accepted in the UK (and Republic of Ireland), but the training there is much more expensive than your stated budget. You can review the options in Ireland at Atlantic Bridge | Study in Ireland -- although that website is for applicants from North America, it will give you a general idea as to procedures and costs.

    There are no English-language medical schools in the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, or Norway. These countries offer training in their respective national languages, and may or may not allow any foreign students for that training at all.

    The only other EU options with English language training within that price range are going to be in the East-EU (Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Croatia, Slovakia, Estonia, Romania, Bulgaria)... with the exception of some new programs in Italy and Malta. I do not know whether the Italian/Maltese training would fit your budget, or not. Google is your friend, in that regard.

    The E-EU English language programs run the gamut between decent and pretty horrible, so I would recommend a thorough review before signing on with any schools there.

    Frankly, if you want inexpensive and high quality training as a foreigner (assuming you are a very good student), then it would be a fine idea to learn German and apply in Germany. The tuition fees are extremely low, even for foreign students, and the training is at a much higher level than most options at English programs in E-EU.

    Good luck.

    Really? The only foreigners I know who studied in Holland studied in Dutch. My bad.

    OK... well, according to this reasonably reliable resource, you can do the first half (three years) of qualification in English, but after that Dutch is requisite. So there is no escaping the Dutch element if you wish to train in a clinical specialty later.

    No, the message you posted is saying exactly what I said. One must understand the organization of medical education in Holland.

    As the kindly student ambassadors pointed out in your attachment, the "Bachelor of Medicine" is offered in English (at Groningen, and elsewhere). The "Bachelor of Medicine" course is the first half of the medical regimen in Holland. It covers the first three years, which are available in English. The SECOND three years, which yield the "Master of Medicine," are in Dutch... unless you are pursuing a non-clinical academic pathway. The training (7th) year is also exclusively in Dutch.

    So yeah, you can do the first half of medical school in English, but not the second half ("Master of Medicine" -- which means "physician").

    Look at the entire academic program, and the requirements for medical practice. That is where the important details lie.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I get a lot of PMs.

    I deleted the lot and am once again reachable.
