The most affordable medical universities in Europe – General medicine

Studying medicine and dentistry is the dream of many students. If you wish to study in English language, there are considerable fees related to your 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 the other 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 2024/2025. 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 May 7th 2024.

Prices written below are for 2 semesters (1 academic year), and studies are in English (unless stated differently).

13. Tuition fees in 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).

Conclusion

There are plenty of medical schools in Europe, where studies in English are possible. The most affordable are studies in Italy, which are also the most selective. Another problem is that there are only a few places available and there are students from all over the world applying.

There is an interesting mixture of quality and price in central Europe – Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Poland, which are not discovered yet by Finnish students yet. The entrance exam is based usually on multiple-choice questions from biology and chemistry with 50-200 seats available in those universities.

On another side of the scale are various private universities located in countries like Cyprus, Germany or Spain.
