Medicine – Update

In the UK, medical schools want you to have studied Physics, Chemistry and Biology and have good results in these subjects – preferably externally assessed.

You MUST have work experience in the caring professions, but for Oxbridge more than this is needed – perhaps medical research at a university.  A gap year may well be needed.

There are lots of places in Europe to study Medicine (for example the Netherlands), but understand that after the 1st 3 years in English, the tuition switches to the language of the country!


Medicine in Europe and the Middle East, Taught in English

A colleague from a Swiss international school has been researching the availability of Medicine  – here are her findings.

Entrance tests can be quite difficult.  Fluency in the country’s language will be required sooner or later to treat the locals!  Although practical work can be possibly done elsewhere.

Charles University, Prague – 5 months in English pre-med course.  Can practise in the EU.

Royal College Surgeons Bahrain – link to Ireland.
