The Admission Process

MediStart is an official partner of the university and has developed extensive preparation options for the admission process. High school grades are not decisive for admission. In the case of Dentistry, the university tests your manual skills. In the case of medicine, the allocation of study places is done through the MediTest-EU; for which MediStart optimally prepares you. The test consists of a written part (60%) focused on biology, chemistry, general knowledge and a motivation and aptitude interview (40%); It is usually done every month completely online. Remember that it is also possible and even advisable to take the admission exam before finishing high school. If during high school you have not studied natural sciences such as biology, chemistry, physics or mathematics, it is advisable to attend the MediStart college semester; in person or online. The MediStart college semester is officially recognized by the university as college preparation; your MediStart advisor will be happy to advise you on your individual requirements and options. We prepare you for the online MediTest-EU with personalized coaching sessions so that you can get your place at the university. MediStart accompanies you from the beginning, guarantees a smooth process throughout the admission stage and supports you with all the doubts you have so that your studies abroad are a great experience full of success.
