Entry requirements for medicine studies in Europe vs. the U.S. 

Wherever you decide to study medicine in Europe, it will be almost the same and the good thing is that diplomas from all accredited medical universities in EU and EEA countries are recognised in all countries.
Statistically, though, it seems that while it is easier to get into a medical school in Europe, it is harder to find a place where you can practice medicine, and work as a doctor. Compared to Europe, in the U.S., getting into a medical school can be really difficult, but once you successfully complete your studies, you have a great chance that you will easily find work in a hospital or other health care facility.


Medical studies in Europe

1. European Bachelor’s degree requirements


  • High school diploma (certificate) giving access to university

  • Good marks in biology and chemistry and math

  • Letters of recommendation

  • Letter of motivation

  • Voluntary or work experience related to health care

  • Candidates taking the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) must offer three subjects including Chemistry and Biology at Higher Level, plus three subjects at Standard Level.



Holders of European Baccalaureate must have 87.5% for the diploma overall (including chemistry and biology)
Some countries may also require IELTS (usually a minimum score of 6.0)


Medical studies in the U.S.
In the U.S., medical degrees are considered second entry degrees, meaning you cannot enrol directly to a Bachelor degree in medicine. You need a Bachelor (undergraduate) degree in order to apply to medical school. Then, you can enrol in a complete and progressive medicine study degree that usually lasts four years.
American degree requirements for medical school


  • High School Diploma

  • Undergraduate Degree in the field of Sciences (3 – 4 years)

  • Minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.00

  • TOEFL




Admissions committee may also consider other factors when deciding whether or not to admit a student to a medical programme:

[*]Extracurricular activities


[*]Personal qualities


[*]Commitment to medicine


[*]Meeting MCAT exam requirements

Grades required 
Medicine is a very competitive discipline, requiring high grades particularly in science subjects as well as a high standard of English. Three full A Levels, or equivalent, is the minimum requirement. Chemistry is nearly always essential and biology is often a specific requirement. 

The entry requirements of all publicly funded UK medical schools can be found in this MSC booklet.

UK medical schools usually accept International Baccalaureate and European Baccalaureate qualifications. Some medical schools require that you take additional tests such as the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT), the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) and the Graduate Medical School Admissions Test GAMSAT.

Academic ability is not the only pre-requisite for a career in medicine.  Commitment, perseverance, initiative, originality, personal integrity, concern for others, and the ability to communicate are all essential.  Good academic qualifications are normally required because the course is long and intellectually demanding. 

The exact requirements do differ between different medical schools. You are advised to check details with UCAS and/or the admissions department for the medical schools you are interested in applying to.
