Why Study Medicine in Europe?
Whether it be general medicine, dentistry, or veterinary medicine, the opportunity to study in another country adds great value, not only to your education, but on a personal level. You get to experience different cultures in a diverse classroom setting. Going to medical school in one’s home country often means difficult entrance exams, exceptionally high grade requirements, and exorbitant tuition fees with limited spaces. This can mean waiting one or more semesters, even if you finally get accepted.
Here at London Medical Academy, our pre-med course helps prepare you for the entrance exam and the first year of medical study at 40+ medical universities in 12 different European countries. Graduates from these English language medical schools have the ability to work in the UK, any country in the European Union, the United States, and many other countries around the world, all the while enhancing important intercultural skills. This gives you a great advantage as you start your dream career in medicine!

- Classes and materials are in English
- Medical University entrance exams are the deciding factor as opposed to final high school grades

Even with a straight-A high school record, entrance to medical schools in many home countries is not guaranteed. Due to the limited number of new student admissions, many applicants may have to wait several years for admission, despite excellent academic performance. For good-to-average high school students, the wait can be even longer, sometimes 10-12 semesters. For this reason, many students choose to study general medicine abroad. But this doesn’t mean a lower quality education. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, as a degree in general medicine from any of the 40+ medical universities in 12 different European countries allows graduate doctors to work or continue education anywhere in the UK, EU, US, Canada, and other countries around the world,

Much like general medicine, dentistry has one of the most restrictive admission requirements at many schools around the world. Even with excellent grades, there is no guarantee of admission and often there is a long wait for a spot to open up.Fortunately, there is an alternative with options abroad and in English. Many medical universities in Europe offer dental programs in English with the same cutting-edge and state-of-the-art learning facilities. In fact, many students who decided to study medicine and dentistry abroad have repeatedly voiced how surprised and pleased they were with the level of technology and modern facilities and labs during their studies abroad.
