1. What are the objectives of a medical pre-semester?

It is our goal, to offer future medical students the best possible preparation for a study course or an admission exam, nationally and internationally. Therefore we offer the preparatory course in English only, because studies of medicine abroad, in other European countries, are conducted in English. Of course it lies at our heart, to release you into your medical studies without any transition, so that you know, what you have to expect and therefore the chance of a drop-out subsides.

2. Which subjects are taught and at which level?

The three-week Intensive Course includes the natural sciences biology, chemistry and physics. Contents are taught at advanced course level, many contents however are going further, and the experienced lecturers will give you a first impression of studies, whereas educational contents intentionally overlap with the first semester.

3. Why is the course only offered in English?

We offer our Intensive Course in English only. Thereby, we not only want to prepare future medical students optimally for their studies in their home country, but also those, who decided to study abroad, where the courses are conducted in English only. In the times of globalization, it does no harm for students, to master the contents in English.

10. Will the participants get the chance to be active by themselves in the medical course?
