Student reviews of the best medical schools in the world

Here are a few impressions from students who attended some of the best medical schools mentioned above:

Cambridge University graduate

“I’m loving my study experience at Cambridge because it’s a highly intellectually stimulating environment with so many opportunities to take advantage of during your studies. I’ve met some wonderful people (that I know will be my friends for life) and have had the chance to do so many things that I wouldn’t have otherwise, all while receiving top quality teaching and mentoring.”

University of Vienna graduate

“University of Vienna is one of the oldest universities in Europe with a beautiful as well as historic main building and many campuses all around the city of Vienna. Studying in the University of Vienna was an enriching experience, as the city of Vienna is home to many students and offers diverse opportunities for them. As a student at the University of Vienna, you are expected to be self-sufficient and self-disciplined as there are a lot of students who are admitted into programs, but only a few actually manage to finish the programs.”

University of Toronto graduate

“This is an amazing school and it has an amazing environment with great people. The city is especially nice because the school is located in the heart of downtown. Although it could be really cold during the wintertime, the campus is really nice and there are lots of supports for the students from the university.”

Karolinska Institute graduate

“It has been a great experience; I had the opportunity to work with new techniques on genetics and it has been amusing and a future great point on the CV. The lab environment was nice, although I had my problems with communication, as it was my very first exchange and immersion in English. Even though I needed to do the internship in order to get my degree, I got paid through a scholarship from the lab. I also got a semester of free Swedish lectures. If you are interested in Sweden and in the field of Biomedics/Biochemistry, I definitely recommend going there!! (Not to the University of Gothenburg) Good luck! :)”

University of Edinburgh graduate

“Friendly environment, excellent teachers, the courses really help master students think critically and independently. My programme requires a lot of reading, review and analysing of literatures and data. As well as doing research, the ability related to this increased greatly.”
