Why did you choose to study abroad?
I chose to study abroad because I wanted to experience somthing completly new. Studying abroad in an international student environment gives you friends from all over the world, and I see that as very enriching. Moreover you learn a new language and a new culture.
Why did you choose to study Medicine at Masaryk University?
To me it was easy to choose Masaryk university because I already had a friend who studied there, and I visited the university to see how it was. I was very impressed and decided immediately to apply for Masaryk.
How did you prepare your departure?
I prepared for departure by studying biology, chemistry and physics because I knew they would be subjects of the first semester. I also tried to learn a bit of Czech, which was very hard!
What is it like to study at Masaryk University?
Studying medicine at Masaryk is very exciting, but at the same time very challenging. You can probably find other universities around Europe, which are easier to pass, but I find it hard to believe that you will find another university that has a better educational program.
With brand new facilities and modern equipment, the campus is really state of the art.
What are your 3 best pieces of advice to others who are considering to study Medicine abroad?
1. There will be times where you feel that you are not able to get through. Just stick with it, give it your best and you will succeed. Medicine is a marathon, and those who never give up, will eventually win.
2. You are only a medical student once (hopefully). Take maximum advantage, learn as much as you can, have a social life and enjoy every minute.
3. Find your own way. You will always hear about people spending more hours than you at the library. Hours spent in the library doesn't always reflect how much you have learned!
