about fees in Germany - depends on the university. in Munich you just have to pay an administrative fee of 85 euros twice a year, which isnt too much. But fees will be on the way in in a year or two, on the order of about 1000 euros per year.
Obviously it was a bit of a culture shock when I first arrived in Germany about 7 years ago, but now I really like it and I'd say it's a really nice place to live with a high standard of living.
German uni system includes lots of unannounced tests on material- really? Where did you get this from? Never heard of that.
I did the Goethe ZOP exam.
I wouldn´t say the course takes much longer than in UK, 5 years vs 6 years 2 months doesnt seem a great deal, but what I would be more concerned about is the career prospects. Not sure how good the career prospects are in Germany - junior doctors are terribly paid for a start. And not sure how you would go about returning to the UK if you had qualified in Germany, especially after they just did away with the German equivalent of JHO year.Ed

And the 3 month nursing placement you have to do before the Physikum ...
It was increased from 2 to 3 months. Would love to get a hold of the person who actually thought that one out, grr
Im just finishing mine off at the moment, only this week, 4 days next week, then 3 days and its over. What a complete waste of time and effort, being the skivvy on the wards. Ill be relieved to get it over. Having said that, at least all the nurses were decent enough so its been bearable, but only just.
Ive heard that more jobs are available now in the old East Germany, but what I hear of things now there seem to be even less available in the UK ...
While you remind me though Ill see whether there are any chances for me to do an exchange year or semester in England. That would make for a good comparison.Ed

medical schools in Latvia and Poland
I've also been actively looking into medical school abroad. I just wondered whether anyone knew anything about medical schools in Lativa and Poland and also the culture in terms of living there. I have found a few english medical school programs in Poland and one in Latvia. I just want other people's opinions on these two places.

Vielleicht warst du nicht im Gymnasium und von daher kennst du keine Ex temporal!
Maybe you didn't go to grammar school in Germany and thats why you don't know ex temporal (unannounced tests)!

Hello. I have an American degree. A bachelors of Science in Advertising from the University of Florida (pretty good school). I have known about the ease of entrance into med school in Germany. This option is attractive to me because in England when I finally return I will be classified as an international student even though I am British, and I will be charged astronomical rates. I have started to learn German but its difficult to learn here in America. Does anyone know if my American degree would get me into a German medical school? I have been told by the University of Jena in East Germany that I could study there, but I am not sure how good of a school it would be.
How hard is the German language entrance test, the DSH test I think? I would like first to go to Germany and enroll in an intensive language class.
