Why I chose Medical Poland

Why I chose to study with Medical Poland Admission Office Admission Office.
Veterinary Medicine has always been a passion of mine and I knew it was the career path I wanted to take. With rising points, staggering competition as well as UCD being the only university to offer the course in the whole of Ireland, I knew I had to look at Veterinary schools abroad in Europe. I attended a Eunicas event held in Dublin in April 2018 with my mother and brother. The event was held for students who wanted to study medicine and veterinary abroad/in Europe. I had been accepted to study Veterinary Medicine in Budapest, Hungary and wanted to get some more information from a university representative. In a weird , but now perfect twist of faith, no one from college in Budapest could attend the event. I was somewhat surprised and almost put off at this information but was lead to the Medical Poland Admission Office stand by the Eunicas representative, Guy. This is where I met Adam, Artur and Gosia and began my journey with them.


At the event, the Medical Poland Admission Office were also on hand to speak about studying Medicine in Poland and lots of perspective students were being guided on how to begin studying abroad. It was also very encouraging to hear testimonials from current students who were studying all over Europe. They were able to share their experiences and stories with other prospective students in the room and were there along with the Medical Poland Admission Office to answer any questions we had and to clear away any anxiety we might have had around the area!


From the moment Adam began discussing Poland as an option to study Veterinary in Europe, I was hooked. I was made aware that Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences was one of the top Veterinary schools in Europe and my expectations haven’t changed since starting there. I had never even realised that there were so many Veterinary schools in Europe and didn’t know Poland would be an option. I had never heard of the city of Wroclaw….to be honest I couldn’t even pronounce it! Everything was explained in so much detail about the college and how to begin the application process. It was almost like a weight had been lifted because the Medical Poland Admission Office were there as an added help and you didn’t feel alone in applying or waiting for a long time to get a response to a question. They are so approachable and always on hand to help, no matter how big or small the problem!


I began the application process almost straight away. Medical Poland Admission Office sent the application form and other requirements for the application such as Leaving Cert results, personal statement etc. After sending off the required information, an interview was scheduled. To be completely honest, I was very nervous at the thoughts of doing an interview for the university, but the team really made me feel welcome. I knew then that Wroclaw was the place for me and was over the moon to be told a week or so later that I had been accepted to study Veterinary Medicine with them! An added bonus of course was the fact that my best friend Serena had also been accepted, so we were ready to begin the journey of studying in Europe together.

From the moment of being accepted into the University, the Medical Poland Admission Office were there to help and guide me through the process of starting the course in Wroclaw. They made it stress free and made sure to give extra information and begin organising a tour of the university. I travelled to Poland for the first time in June and met with a professor from the university who gave myself and Serena a complete tour of the gorgeous campus and told us more about how the university works, how the different semesters are arranged, some contact details for other professors in the university, and also some things to do around Wroclaw. I was blown away by the state of the art and modern facilities the college has including the MRI , X- ray machines and large clinics for both large and small animals. I was also very happy to hear that the university is very “hands on” with regard to work experience and active learning throughout the course of studies in Poland. From very early on during this visit that was evident. It was also shown that the professors are very approachable and helpful, a trait that has stayed true since I started here earlier this month.


We then also visited the college dorms just to have a feel for the area in general and to see how the tram system worked. We knew that there would be very low chance we would actually get to see inside a dorm, but by sheer fluke we met an Irish boy in the reception. He then kindly offered to show us his room which really helped put an idea in our heads how they were organised. There is a large Irish and British community in the Veterinary and Medical Universities in Poland, helped of course by the Medical Poland Admission Office. I am so glad I chose to start studying in Poland with one of the top Veterinary schools in Europe. You won’t regret it either!

NEWS

Medical Poland Admission Office for last 5 years has been consequently helping Irish and all international students who dream of studying medicine or veterinary medicine in the heart of Europe. We were happy to learn from Polish Ministry of Education’s report that in August 2018 there were 247 Irish students in Poland and majority of them, 233 students, had chosen to study medicine and veterinary medicine programs through English in Poland. “Irish young and well educated students have decided to start their medical and veterinary career at the universities of Wroclaw, Bialystok, Poznan, Warsaw, but the favorite medical university remains Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz. In August 2018 there were 43 students from Ireland and this number increased in October 2018 to 59 studying medicine in English” says Adam Krawczyk, Head of Medical Poland Admission Office. We expect this trend to continue as we can see the enormous interest in studying medicine, dentistry and veterinary abroad and increasingly often in Poland.
