Debrecen Medical University, Hungary
Medicine or Dentistry 6 Year Course
Foundation year available for students without Science subjects
The University of Debrecen was founded in 1912. At the time only four faculties existed. The medical school consists of 22 departments in basic sciences and 25 clinical departments which include the fields of Clinical Chemistry, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Psychiatry, Paediatrics and more. The medical school also serves as a city hospital for the city of Debrecen so students looking for clinical training need not look any further. The faculty of medicine started M.D. training in English in 1987 with only 49 students. Debrecen is now proud to say its current number of students exceeds 1500. The University of Debrecen is internationally recognised in the fields of both basic and clinical research which facilitates the support and close co-operation of researchers and interdisciplinary studies. All curricula meet the challenges of modern times and embody basic but comprehensive values regarding the course.
Debrecen is the second largest city after Budapest in Hungary and is known as the regional centre of the Northern Great Plain region. It is widely classed as a leading global city with its economic hub and close proximity to the capital city (230km).
Great attractions of note include the Hortobagy National Park, the holiday resort (where the university campus lies) and the Great Forest also known as Nagyerdo.

You can expect to pay roughly €450 to €550 per month for everything inclusive, generally while studying in medical universities in Europe.
