The perfect preparation for a career in medicine
The Berlin Medical Academy is a prestigious school in the heart of Germany’s multicultural capital which offers dynamic pre-med courses.
On these pages we want to give you an idea of what the Academy is like, as well as some of the benefits you can expect from studying here.
The primary goal of the Academy is to prepare our students to successfully pass their medical university entrance examinations for European medical universities. Our pre-med courses also provide students with the knowledge they need to feel prepared for their first year of medical study, as the syllabus is quite similar.
Our pre-med courses are taught in English and open the door to studying medicine in English at 46 leading universities across 12 European countries. We do also offer the option of pre-med courses taught in the German language with a view to preparing students to pass their entrance exams for study in universities in both Germany and Austria.
The pre-med course program is ideal for students looking for a career in general medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy and physiotherapy, in Germany, Europe, and other countries around the world.
Advantages of the Berlin Medical Academy’s pre-med course include:
- Feeling prepared to pass specific medical study entrance examinations, such as the BMAT in the UK and the IMAT in Italy, as well as SAT biology, SAT chemistry SAT physics and MED-AT.
- Gaining an advantage over other first-year medical students – our pre-med course syllabus mirrors that of first year courses for medical degrees in 46 universities across Europe, meaning students are prepared in advance for what they can expect
- Allowing students to improve their grade point average and chances of admission to a medical university
- Offering more individual attention and assistance than other schools, as our courses are limited to 25-30 students
- Respected lecturers and professors with a wealth of international teaching experience
- Learn at an experienced school which has seen over a thousand alumni successfully complete a pre-med course and move on to study medicine at universities across Europe.
Our courses focus on natural sciences such as biology, chemistry, anatomy, physics and mathematics, genetics and cognitive skills. Classes are held 3 – 4 days per week, and are supplemented with self-study, homework, simulation exercises and lab work.
Since our inception, over 1,000 students have successfully participated in our pre-med courses and are now studying (or have completed medical university) at 46 medical schools across 12 different European countries.
The Berlin Medical Academy has been a proud member of the Overseas Medical Education’s International College Network since 2007.
An institution designed to open doors for students eager to study medicine
The Berlin Medical Academy was designed with the intention of helping international students embark on a successful medical career.
High admission criteria in many students’ home countries, combined with limited enrolment numbers, means that obtaining a medical education can often be difficult. The role of the Berlin Medical Academy is to provide students with the best possible preparation for their medical university entrance examinations, and therefore increase the likelihood of them being accepted at 46 medical schools across 12 different European countries that our courses open the door to.
Our first German academy was founded in Berlin in 2013. That first class had 17 students and seven teachers. Today, we’ve grown to about 200 students registering each year.
The Academy has three semesters per year, with over 60 students in three classes per semester, supported by a faculty of over 15 qualified teachers.
As a world-renowned cosmopolitan city and convenient hub for international students, Berlin was chosen to be the premier international site for the foreign medical education network.
The Berlin Medical Academy is located on the historic Friedrichstrasse, near to Checkpoint Charlie. We’re based in a new building with state-of-the-art facilities.
We have links with medical universities throughout Europe, including Germany, Austria, Poland, Italy, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Lithuania, Cyprus, Hungary, Slovakia, Latvia and Bulgaria. Our pre-med courses open the door to studying medicine at these universities.
We help students to meet the challenge of achieving a medical education
The Berlin Medical Academy was formed by a group of dedicated medical doctors and academics who were motivated by helping international students meet the challenges of achieving a medical education.
The Academy was also created with a view to solving the problem of an acute shortage of doctors in many countries around the world. We’re hoping to address this situation by removing the barriers of being admitted to medical university.
One of these barriers to a medical education is financial. At the Berlin Medical Academy, we offer the possibility of paying for tuition in instalments. We also provide scholarships to motivated applicants based on their socio-economic status.
This allows more talented young people the opportunity to get started in their medical or academic career.
Our small teaching groups of up to 25 – 30 students guarantee high quality education while offering a more personal interaction between student and teacher. All of our highly qualified teachers are teaching professionals at science faculties at universities in Germany and throughout the world.
Finding the best location for students to continue their studies across our network of 46 medical universities in 12 different European countries is another key component of our offer. We provide advice to our students on where to find their perfect school for them.
The Academy is growing rapidly. We plan to expand throughout Europe, and this year alone we have opened one new academy in the heart of London, and another one in Munich.
