Perhaps the closed number for the will be removed Medical School, but in the meantime many young Italians, who have not passed the test, go to Albania.
The Night Tabloid envoy went to Tirana to see what happens in front of the University on the day of the entrance test for Medicine: hundreds of Italian children accompanied by their parents are lining up to try to enter the Faculty of Tirana.

Albania: the alternative besides the Adriatic for Italian students
Here is the alternative for medical students, it is called Nostra Signora del Buon Consiglio: a Catholic university under Albanian law which - in agreement with the University of Rome Tor Vergata - issues a degree also valid in Italy.
The day before entering a bar in Tirana, here are some student's recommendations for future freshmen. The road is this, a line from 8000 euro a year to be paid in a single payment for a place in medicine.
"We have 50 places that we extend each year, however, if the Albanian ministry of education gives us authorization.
The admission competition is done exactly as it is done in Italy, with the same criteria and also with the same quizzes. The only difference is that there are no questions of logic and those of general culture, according to the legislation of the Albanian government. It is not up to us to decide on this.
We are an Italian university under Albanian law: the rules are Albanian ”- says the principal of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery, Giovanni Arcudi.
This is how more and more Italian children are relying on Albanian law to put on lab coats, but at what price?
"We are all doctors and we are forced to this new migration of studies which is a shame for Italy. I feel like crying to stay here and see all these situations here.
I am part of one of the most beautiful countries in the world and I have to come here to beg for a place to study. A place to study is not that I'm asking for a job, but a place to study.
It seems absurd to me; I give 80.000 € of taxes to the Italian state a year, why can't my family choose the faculty? ”- states one parent.
