Studying medicine and dentistry is the dream for many students. If you wish to study in English, there are considerable fees related to studies. We will take a look at studies at universities in European Union to find out which universities are the cheapest. It is also important to tell, that universities have different deadlines, entry requirements, and procedures.

Please note, that studies in the local language (e.g. in the Slovak language in Slovakia) are free of charge for most of the European countries. On another hand, competition for studies in the local language is really big (which is also the reason, why many students move for studies in the English language across Europe).

The tuition fees below are from the academic year 2021/2022. For the most recent tuition fee amounts, make sure to check the website of the respective university. Conversion of tuition fees to euro was done on 25.6.2021

Italy

Italian medical universities are the cheapest, but also really competitive. While universities in central Europe offer usually 150-250 seats every year for general medicine and 30-50 for dental medicine, Italian universities have usually only 40-80 places with a strict division between EU and non-Eu students. That is also the reason, why many Italians study medicine in schools of central Europe (e.g. Masaryk University, University of Pavel Jozef Safarik etc). Private universities are one of the most expensive in Europe.

For public universities, there are the minimum and maximum tuition fees stated according to the social status of the student. Admission is based on the IMAT exam, which can be completed in tens of countries worldwide (so you dont need to travel anywhere). The Source of fees below is the website: medschool.it
