Studying in Hamburg 

Hamburg’s 1.8 million residents make it Germany’s second-largest city (Berlin being the largest), offering an unrivalled quality of life.

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. It is well connected to all major cities in the world and is easily accessible from all directions, whether you are travelling by bus, train, car or plane.

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 concert hall “Elbphilharmonie”. Countless canals, watercourses and bridges contribute to the city’s particular charm. Hamburg is a hub for musicals, concerts and theatre productions and offers a diverse student life. There are virtually no limits to how you can use your free time.

Requirements and Application 

In order to be accepted at the UMCH, you will need to hold a high school diploma ( A-levels, Secondary school leaving certificate etc.). However, you can apply as early as 2 years before finishing high school and could be accepted before graduation. Your grade point average upon graduation will not play a role in the assessment of your application. Also, 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, as this university allocates study places after successful participation in an aptitude and motivational process that includes an interview and a brief evaluation.

The MediStart Study Consultants optimise your application documents and prepare you specifically for the admission process.
