Are there any good universities in Romania?

Medical studies in Romania

Studying medicine in Romania is a bargain study: the tuition fees are particularly low, but the quality of the training can often not keep up with international standards. We currently offer three locations: Iasi, Targu Mures and Cluj. The medical degree in Cluj is well known in Germany and enjoys a good reputation. Targu Mures offers better teaching and equipment for this. If you are interested in studying medicine in Romania in another city, please contact us: We place applicants at almost all medical universities in Romania with an English or French-speaking branch, and if you have language skills, even to the Romanian-language program in Sibiu. Most universities offer medicine and dentistry. For studying veterinary medicine abroad, we recommend Wroclaw in Poland, Kaunas in Lithuania, Jelgava in Latvia, Sofia in Bulgaria and Zagreb in Croatia.

Geography & Climate

Romania lies between Central and Southeastern Europe. In the south the country borders on Bulgaria, in the west on Serbia and Hungary, in the north and east it shares a border with Ukraine, with the Republic of Moldova in between. In the east, Romania has a coast on the Black Sea.

Romania consists of a third of mountains, highlands and flatlands. The most important mountain range in Romania are the Carpathian Mountains.

The climate fluctuates accordingly: in the mountains the winters get very cold, in the lower areas the summers get up to 25 ° C on average.

Country & people

Romania has been through a lot: after the Second World War, the country fell under Soviet influence. The Communist Party ruled one of the worst dictatorships in Eastern Europe in the 20th century. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, it was overthrown in the “Romanian Revolution”, but the country recovered only slowly. Roads and railways are in a bad state, corruption remains a major problem to this day.

However, there are bright spots. Romania joined NATO in 2004 and the EU in 2007. The economy is developing rapidly. Thanks to fast internet connections, the IT industry is growing, attracting investors and start-ups. The "Dracula Castle" in Transylvania and projects such as a dinosaur park in Brașov attract tourists to the country.

Germany gave Romania special support when it joined the EU, which makes the relationship friendly. Romanians are considered hospitable and open to strangers. In the cities, most people speak one or the other foreign language (English, German, French). Studying medicine in Romania also usually includes a course in the local language.

According to a survey in 2005, Romania is one of the most religious countries in the EU. The majority of the population belongs to the Romanian Orthodox Church.


In tourist places, you should keep an eye on your valuables. That is what the Federal Foreign Office recommends. That being said, Romania is a safe country with a low crime rate. It is therefore safe to study medicine in Romania.
