    2. Why did you decide to study abroad?

    I always loved travelling and wanted to study abroad, it was definitely one the best decisions I have ever made. Studying abroad can be an incredibly rewarding experience that offers a wealth of benefits. It provides the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture, learn a new language, and broaden your horizons. You’ll have the chance to explore new places, make new friends, and gain a fresh perspective on the world. I believe that studying abroad is an excellent way to challenge yourself and step outside of your comfort zone. It can be a transformative experience that helps you to grow as a person and gain a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you.

    4. What do you like about your studies?

    Dental students have the unique opportunity to work with their hands and make a tangible difference in people’s lives. They get to develop practical skills that can help them restore patients’ oral health and function. This hands-on experience can be incredibly rewarding, allowing dental students to see the immediate impact of their work on patients. Additionally, dental students often form close-knit communities with their peers and faculty, sharing a passion for oral health and learning from one another. Overall, dental students have the opportunity to develop both practical skills and close relationships, making for a fulfilling and enjoyable educational experience.


    Testimonial from MISTY ROHATGI, student at Medical University of Lodz

    1. What is your name, where are you from?

    My name is Misty Rohatgi and I’m from India.

    2. Why did you decide to study abroad?

    As my parents live in Nigeria, I was intrigued to learn about varied culture and languages in other parts of the world.

    3. Why did you decide to study medicine?

    Well when I was a child I loved playing with doctor sets. My  uncles who are pharmacists  got many sample tablets at home, which I used to play and prescribe them. Looking at my nature of helping others and the will to give back to humankind,  the childhood game became a reality.

    4. Why did you choose MUL?

    Living all my life in the hustle bustle of bigger cities, I wanted to experience living in a student city. Lodz happened to be one of them and is also  close to Warsaw, in case I need to travel anywhere. Lodz is in the middle of Poland which makes it easier to explore Poland.

    5. What do you like about your studies?

    The fact that we not only gain the book knowledge, but also that the Dr’s  teach us through their own clinical experiences. They not only help us with our subjects but also guide us for our future career choices.
