Students have been asking me about medicine study options in Europe, outside of the UK. While every country in Europe offers Medicine programs, there seems to be a lack of programs entirely taught in English in Western Europe e.g. France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain. Regardless of the language of instruction, entry is typically subject to a numerus clausus and an entry exam, and for non-EU citizens, the number of places might be even more limited. In Switzerland for instance, medicine courses are only open to Swiss nationals or permanent residents. In any case, competition for a place in medicine is generally fierce and students may want to consider ‘medicine-related’ options as a plan B such as Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Dietetics, Physical Therapy, etc.
The following Medicine programs may be suitable for English speakers. At least some basic knowledge of the language of the country is advisable for a smoother transition into the daily life.
