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 Collegesemester in Hamburg, where they can fill gaps in their knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics while preparing for pre-clinical fields. The MediStart-Collegesemester 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.

Further information regarding the Collegesemester starting in May 2022 can be found at

MediStart can also assist you with finding accommodation in Hamburg.

University Targu Mures Medical Campus Hamburg (UMCH) pfeil_top

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 11,000 international students) and has many years of experience offering its medical degree taught in English.

The UMCH, the German campus of this university, also provides you with world-class medical training; the modern equipment and innovative teaching methods enhance this already excellent degree that adheres to international standards and combines theory with practice early on.

Additionally, the UMCH places particular emphasis on a positive studying atmosphere, offering a guaranteed excellent tutor-student ratio thanks to small tuition groups. Also, you will be able to study within a performance-oriented environment without any negative pressure—tutors maintain close contact with students and seek to strengthen their individual competencies.

The UMCH medical campus is located in Hamburg and can be reached by car or public transport easily. The campus will also host the MediStart-Collegesemester in May 2022 for applicants who wish to fill the gaps in their existing knowledge before starting their studies in autumn 2022.

Studying in Hamburg pfeil_top

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 pfeil_top

In order to be accepted at the UMCH, you will need to hold a high school diploma (Abitur, Matura, IB, A-levels, etc.). However, you can apply as early as 2 years before finishing high school and could be accepted before graduation, and your average grade 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.
