    Transfer from one to another eastern european country? Recommendations?

    Advertisements



    Hello

    To make a long story short, I recently resigned from 4th year of my university in Poland (english program) because I have an old polish royal surname and in basically every new course I get harassed and questioned why I dont speak polish, becoming the black sheep of the group and mocked by teachers. I dont know how it is in other universities of Poland, but I had enough and I feel for an environmental change.

    Very soon after I resigned though, I realized that transfers are easier said than done. Now I dont really care where I can get accepted as long its anyplace, the country or university doesnt matter.

    Could someone please recommend any universities where its not that hard competition to get in? Which countries/universities are easier to transfer to? And what about their local language courses, are there any universities that dont require a local language course, or offer the possibility of doing in it while having clinical subjects? I just want to get in anyplace without loosing too much time. Also if there are any universities accepting midterm transfers? I've been looking at several homepages but some of them lack information.

    Much appreciate if someone would share their experiences,

    Regards

    Hey

    Sorry to hear about your experience. I am a student at UMED (Medical University of Lodz) and students with Polish last names do get asked these questions but not to the extent of harassment. The experience that most students experience are that teachers enjoy speaking polish separately to the Polish speaking students, making the other students feel left out. (not including lots of gossip)

    I know that transferring between universities in Poland has become more difficult over the past few years. This is because of the fact that the enrollment has reached sky-high limits, and they have no more place for transfer students, especially MUL. Most Polish and English division universities in Eastern Europe and the Balkans are pretty much the same situation.

    If you are a US/UK student or something similar, I would strongly advice cutting your losses are actively searching for a medical school in your home country, or in the west at the least (UK, France, Germany etc) You would have to start over and you would HAVE to know the language, but the difficulty of getting into those programs is a reflection of the level of education that you will receive. The quick acceptance into the polish programs will come back to haunt you in the poor education you receive, which in nothing compared to how employers will view you later.

    I hope I was of some help.
    Best of luck!

    Current student
