Study Medicine on Low Tuition in Hungary: Admission Requirements, Cost of Living, Tuition Fees and list of Universities

Medical programs in Hungary are of the highest European standards and are considered to be of highest quality. The relatively easy- to- get admission and the reasonable/low tuition fees make Hungary a desired study abroad for many students.

Annually Hungary  welcomes international students from several parts of the world to four universities that offer English medical, pharmocology, & dentistry programs: Semmelweis University, Debrecen University, Szeged University & Pécs University.

Note that a medical degree from a Hungarian university is recognized by the European Union and the United States which brings many international students to study medicine in Hungary

Medical Degree Program in English

Obtaining admission to a medical school in many countries is super competitive. Since more students are applying for the limited spaces available at medical schools in other countries, the dream of becoming a doctor can be very challenging, if not impossible, for many bright, otherwise qualified students. If becoming a doctor has always been your dream, but seems out of reach in your home country, consider six-year English language medicine programs in Hungary. General medicine programs are six-years long and usually cost a fraction of what it costs to study medicine elsewhere.

Cost of Living in Hungary

Cost of living expenses in Hungary are lower than other European countries. A reasonable monthly budget is about 750 Euros (approximately $950 USD) per month. However, if you are planning to study in Budapest, keep in mind that it is more expensive than other parts of the country.
