tom_protheroeFaculty of medicine greatly superseded my expectations! Moreover I found that I’ve made more Slovak friends in the year that I’ve been in Kosice than the 3 I spent in Czech.

Kosice is an amazing place for students in my opinion, it is a calm city where you can find everything you need and still have a quite, calm atmosphere to study. I would not change it for any other city when deciding to study medicine today!

Košice is great city for living. I am pleased with city and people – there are really nice and helpful. I also like language which is really euphonius. What I really appreciate are our teachers – they helped me a lot since I started to study in Košice!
