Studies of General medicine and Dental medicine are difficult and many students opt for the option to transfer their studies to different universities in Europe. All renowned Universities in Europe are following the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) that makes completed credit tests and exams recognizable abroad. I have prepared a complete list of universities in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Croatia, that accept transfer students. On another hand, you will need to compare your syllabuses and completed courses with the university where you wish to transfer.

Update 2022: i am updating also schools from Georgia and Romania. UPJS is opening branch also in Prague, Czech Republic. As the admission process for Romanian Universities is difficult and study offices rarely responding, I do not offer help with transfers to Romania.

Important: no agent can give you guaranteed admission or guarantee your school year to which you will be enrolled before submission of documents. Every recognition and transfer is possible only after comparing completed courses at your university and transfer university. I had many cases when students were provided misleading or false information that caused extended their studies. Please double check too good to be true information with University before

As I got plenty of emails from students from Ukraine, I wrote a few notes about an affordable university for transfer of medical studies in Europe located in Bosnia.
