„As an international student at the University of Pécs (UP) Medical School, I have had the opportunity to learn from dedicated, friendly professors, do research in a department of my choosing and gain hands on medical experience at the nearby 400-bed clinic. All while creating life-long friendships with fellow students from around the world. The unique experiences at UP continue to play a vital role in my successful completion of an academically challenging curriculum and my personal development of necessary skills to be a future medical professional."

I am a former recipient of the United World College scholarship and have a Bachelors of Science degree in Health Science and Public Health from the University of Miami, Florida. From a young girl, I always dreamed of becoming a doctor. To make my dream a reality, I chose the unique medical program at the University of Pécs. I strongly believe that it only takes “one person to make a difference”, and that through my passion, determination and drive I can be that difference in my home, my community and the world.

If you’re unable to visit the University of Pécs, I encourage you to review the University of Pécs website and contact current students (through facebook, twitter, instagram etc.) to hear about their experiences. I did not tour the university or even visit Hungary beforehand, but having lived and studied aboard before I came to Hungary, I arrived eager to embark on a new adventure to achieve my dream. So far I have had an amazing experience and if I had to do it again, I would do it the very same way!
