Since the fall of 2021, you can study human medicine at the Czech branch of Pavol Jozef Safarik University (UPJS) from Kosice. You will study at a historic and traditional university in one of the most beautiful metropolises in Europe – without grade NC and waiting period.
The branch of Pavol Jozef Safarik University is new and modern.
Due to Prague’s attractiveness, Pavol Jozef Safarik University is extremely popular with international students.
The university dates back to 1660; it has existed in its present form since 1959 and currently, more than 7,500 students are enrolled across five faculties, with 1,250 staff members and lecturers. The Faculty of Medicine is over 71 years old, making it the oldest faculty of the university, and it has been offering degrees taught in English for over 20 years and it now has a branch in Prague.
The university pays attention to practical training and this begins early on with the clinical training.
The university is also very popular with international students, and more than 40 nations are represented on campus.
Prague is not only the capital of the Czech Republic, it is also its largest city, thanks to its 1.2 million inhabitants. The Charles Bridge, which crosses the Danube, is world famous. In the past, the bridge was included on the coronation walk of Bohemian kings. Beyond this, Prague is full of cultural richness–the entire old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The costs of living are moderately low in comparison with other large cities, which makes living in Prague even more appealing. Thanks to a highly active society for international students of Medicine (AIMS), a feeling of togetherness is encouraged. Numerous events are organised, inlcuding balls, dinner parties and an annual book sale for new students.
You can obtain a university place without a sole focus on your final high school grades; all you will need is a qualification allowing you to study at a university, such as a high school diploma. Admission with a subject-related entrance qualification is also possible. A successful result in the university’s difficult admission test–a multiple-choice science test–is also needed, and MediStart prepares you for the test in an exclusive preparatory course (also available online), which is offered exclusively to MediStart clients.
In addition, the university requires proof of English proficiency, verified either by good school grades or by a completed TOEFL or IELTS test.
MediStart accompanies you throughout the application process, optimises your documents and takes care of every step of the application process.
