+Fees - Costs
  • Studying medicine in the UK, the USA and Canada is extremely expensive.
  • In the UK, a medical student pays up to £20,000 per year (€23,390).
  • In Canada, annual tuition fees cost approximately $12,500 (£6,047).
  • In the USA, private institutions can cost up to $47,000 (£31,610) per year.
  • Living costs are also notably higher in these countries.

  • Thousands of medical graduates from these universities work in numerous countries in the EU and further afield. Medical students wishing to transfer to a Bulgarian or Romanian university may do so easily through the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
