MediStart – Study medicine ⚕️ in Europe

Studying medicine in Hamburg

You can study 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. This is the only university in Germany that offers the opportunity 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, and the admission process involves an aptitude test based on an interview and a brief evaluation. MediStart, as the UMCH’s official partner, will help you to optimally prepare for this.

Every year, it is possible for MediStart applicants to take part in a College semester in Hamburg, where they can fill gaps in their knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics while preparing for pre-clinical fields. The MediStart College semester also trains you intensively in using English terminology and successfully completing the application process. Not only are the courses taught in medical campus classrooms, they are also taught by medical teaching staff (as well as others). In addition, you will get to know your future professors and fellow students for the first year of your degree.
