There are several advantages to studying medicine abroad. Studying medicine in Europe holds several advantages when compared to studying medicine in the US or Canada. Medical Universities in Europe include some of the best medical schools in the world and offer top-rate medical education and training. The European medical universities we work with, for instance, have centuries of prestigious legacy and have produced some of the leading physicians and doctors in the world today.
Unfortunately, European medical schools are sometimes perceived as mediocre or “not up to par” with medical schools in the US and Canada. However, this is a misconception. Medical programs in Europe meet the highest standards of modern medicine and many doctors, who studied in Europe, practice in the United States, UK, and Canada.
Why study medicine abroad?
In an article published by the New York Times about medical studies abroad, “The number of foreign university students in Hungary rose 21 percent from 2005 to 2011 — to 16,465 from 13,601” (August 2013). It seems that many realize that studying medicine in North America is unnecessarily expensive, includes a much more tedious and competitive admissions process, and are therefore examining options to study medicine abroad.

Total Cost of Medical School
Medical School in the US is plainly a fortune. However, medical schools in Europe are considerably cheaper. The cost of a medical degree in the US ranges at $140-240,000 over 4 years. Medical Schools in Europe, however, are almost a third of that, with tuition fees spanning between $60-90,000 over 6 years.
Medical School Admission Requirements & application
Applying to Medical schools in the US and Canada can be a tedious and unforgiving process. There are many requirements for even just applying to med school in North America such as an undergraduate degree, the MCAT’s, 2 years of prerequisite courses. Often this is incorrectly perceived as a product of prestige and demand, though the truth is that medical schools are a business and the difficult med school requirements aren’t necessarily linked to the level of studies. Medical Schools In Europe, however, only require a high school diploma and to pass a written and oral entrance exam in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, anatomy, etc.
Many who are interested in studying medicine abroad are concerned with the fact that a medical degree in Europe takes 6 years whereas in the US it only takes 4 years. But this is again a bit misconstrued. First, American medical schools require a graduate degree which takes 4 years (making it a 8-10 year degree acquisition process) whereas in Europe one could apply to medical school right after high school. Second, some medical schools in Europe offer a 4-year program for international students who hold a bachelor’s degree.
One of the greatest reasons to study abroad is expanding your horizons and seeing the world! Why not gain a world-accredited medical degree while living in the gorgeous romantic cities of Europe, such as Rome or Prague? International studies offer a unique opportunity to travel and expose yourself to new and incredible experiences.
