Do you want to study abroad Medicine?
Deciding to study a degree in Medicine abroad is an important step and you have to be very motivated because Medicine studies is very competitive in India but also in countries outside Europe.
Unlike India, there are some countries that do not need entry tests to access Medicine. In England for example you will find some of the best universities in the world and titles are recognized internationally. All universities are limited in number and admissions are based on the requirements established by the individual institutions. In addition to preparation in science subjects, you will need to take a logic test and an English exam. In addition, registration procedures also include reference letters and a cover letter. Hobbies and voluntary activities are very important to get a place in the university.
And in other English-speaking countries?
England remains perhaps one of the most “simple” English-speaking countries where it is possible to start the educational journey to become a doctor. For example, studying in Australia or study in Canada Medicine can be very expensive. Even if you could work in Australia or work in Canada to keep yourself. In addition, for international students, places to access Medicine are limited.
In Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Great Britain, on the other hand, job prospects appropriate to their training and well-paid after a Master’s or Doctorate are much higher and the university research sector is constantly fed with private and state funds. In short, they spend on their own training, but work and research is done by the student.
How is the Medicine course in England organized?
