Top 5 Affordable Countries to Study Medicine in Europe


Poland is a beautiful and well-known country home to interesting beetroot dishes and hardy drinking spirits. Polish universities provide comparatively competitive low cost medical programs that are popular – proven by the fact that each year, medical departments in Poland see intake of students from USA, Scandinavian countries and Saudi Arabia, among many others. Students flock here because they’ll be given a very comprehensive, well-regarded medical education, but will pay considerably less than if they were studying in Western Europe, Australia or North America. Note that degrees awarded by Polish universities are recognised worldwide and the institutions often work with others around the globe.

Sweden is another country in Europe operating a free university system for EU students and recently introduced tuition fees for international  students outside of the European Union. So, for European students, it doesn’t really get much cheaper than that (although it’s best to check with the university you’re applying to in case its policy is different for medicine). What’s more, Sweden’s education system is one of the most impressive in the world, so your medical degree will have been earned in an institution like no other. The normal fees for things like text books, equipment and lodgings still apply, but that seems like small fry when you consider what you’re getting value-for-money-wise.

If you did not know, Germany’s medical programs are free. This makes Germany one of the best places to study if you’re studying on a shoestring budget and can’t afford to roll out the big cheques for each semester. Instead, you can happily chug along, safe in the knowledge that you’re getting a fantastic, world-class education from one of the most intellectually rigorous countries on the planet. Beware, however, as a very good knowledge of the German language will probably be required and you’ll have to pass a series of preliminary tests to get onto the course where these linguistic abilities will keep you in good stead



Tuition fees for Italian medical courses are considerably lower than those in the UK and the US, but aren’t necessarily the cheapest when compared to Germany or Sweden. However, the relatively low cost of living in Italy (depending on where you are in the country) more than makes up for it and the courses aren’t impossible to get on to; there’s an admissions exam for most courses but the system isn’t as rigorous as other nations in Western Europe.

Quiet, unassuming Belgium is often not looked at when it comes to finding a dream European destination for studying, but that shoudln’t be the case. The cost for medical degrees vary wildly depending on the university and where you’re travelling from, but for an EU student the cost is usually around 800 Euros for the year. This is great news for European students, but those coming from America or Australia would  have to check that the prices aren’t inflated too much for them. However, it’ll be worth it because Belgium is home to some exciting medical institutions and the country is a beautiful destination to spend a duration of a tough medical course
