You can start studying medicine at the German campus of the University for Medicine, Pharmacy, Science and Technology of Targu Mures (UMFST) without a sole focus on your high school grades. Since autumn 2019 it has become possible to study medicine in English at the UMCH in Hamburg. It is the only university in Germany offering the possibility to study medicine in English. The university also offers a German language course during the first semesters free of charge. The degree starts every winter semester in October and lasts six years. The admission process involves an aptitude test based on an interview and brief evaluation, both of which MediStart, as the UMCH’s official partner, helps you prepare optimally.
Every February and November, it is possible for MediStart applicants to take part in a Collegesemester in Hamburg. They have the chance to fill gaps in their knowledge of biology, chemistry, and physics while preclinical fields are prepared. The MediStart-Collegesemester also trains you intensively in using English terminology and in successfully completing the application process. Not only are the courses taught in the classrooms of the medical campus, they are also taught among others by its teaching staff. In addition, you will get to know future professors and fellow students in the first year of their degrees. Further information regarding the Collegesemester starting on 9 November 2020 can be found at www.medistart.com/medistart-college-hamburg. MediStart can also help you getting started and find an accomodation in Hamburg.
The University for Medicine, Pharmacy, Science and Technology of Targu Mures (UMFST Targu Mures) is a public medical university located in the Romanian town of Targu Mures in Transylvania. It is Romania’s largest medical university with its 11,000 international students and boasts many years of experience with the medical degree in English.
The UMCH, the German campus of this university with a long tradition, also provides you with world-class medical training. Modern equipment and innovative teaching methods set up a degree that adheres to international standards and combines theory with practice early on. An excellent tutor-student ratio is guaranteed thanks to small tuition groups. The UMCH puts special emphasis on a positive studying atmosphere: You will be able to study within a performance-oriented environment without any negative pressure. The tutors maintain close contact to their students and promote their individual strengths. The UMCH is located directly in Hamburg and can be reached by car or public transport easily.
The UMCH medical campus also plays host to the MediStart-Collegesemester from 9 November 2020 for those applicants who still wish to fill any gaps in the knowledge they acquired at school, before starting their studies in autumn 2021.
Hamburg’s 1,8 million residents make it Germany’s second largest city, after Berlin. It certainly offers one of the best qualities of life in the world. The city is famous for acting as a hub to media and start-up companies, as well as for remaining one of Germany’s most significant research centres. Hamburg’s economic and scientific influence make it an ideal location for your medical studies. In addition, Hamburg is well-connected to all major cities in the world. The city is easily accessible from all directions, whether you are travelling by bus, train, car, or airplane. Hamburg also has much to offer in terms of culture and architecture: The historical “Speicherstadt”, a storage business district belonging to the old harbour, and the “Kontorhaus District”, are both already listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites and make for a beautiful contrast to the modern “Hafencity” and its flagship monument: the “Elbphilharmonie”. Countless canals, watercourses and bridges contribute to the city’s particular charm. Hamburg is a capital for musicals, concerts and theatre productions and offers a diverse student life. There are virtually no limits to how you can spend your free time.
In order to be accepted at the UMCH you will need to hold a high school diploma (Abitur, Matura, IB, A-levels etc.). But you can apply as early as 2 years before finishing high school and be accepted before graduation. Your average grade upon graduation will not play a role. As an alternative to the general higher education entrance qualification, a degree from a technical college combined with any Bachelor’s degree is sufficient for your application. The university allocates study places after a successful participation in an aptitude and motivational process including an interview and a brief evaluation.
