The lessons, the teaching materials and examinations are available in both English or German, depending on which language you choose. For those students wishing to study abroad, we offer the Pre-Med course in English. Students who plan to study in Germany can take the Pre-Med course in German.
To be admitted at any of the 46 optional medical universities in 12 different EU countries, candidates must demonstrate in-depth knowledge in biology/anatomy, chemistry, physics and mathematics. After the intensive preparation in our Pre-Med course and after successful completion of the Pre-Med course exams, we guarantee you that you will have sufficient knowledge to pass the entrance examinations to European medical schools with an English program. After successful participation, some Universities might admit you directly to their medical school. In addition, your participation in the Pre-Med course clearly clarifies a great interest in a medical career, which will have a positive effect on personal interviews.
Our Pre-Med course does not require specific knowledge in science. The goal of our course is to convey sound knowledge in the natural sciences, so that our students can successfully complete a medical degree. The Pre-Med course is aimed at motivated prospective students who have concerns regarding their chances of gaining admission to medical school, have long waits for admission, or want to expand their scientific knowledge.
Our highly motivated lecturers have academic titles in science subjects and have already lectured at prestigious universities at home and abroad, including at the Free University and Humboldt University in Berlin. It is their goal to provide students with the best possible preparatory training and optimally prepare them for their medical studies.
In order to offer our students the best possible preparation for their studies our intensive Pre-Med course will claim your full attention. Besides attending classes you must also plan for significant self-study time and review of lesson content. Our classes are held at least three days a week.
If you’ve already applied to a university, inform our admissions office and in each case it will be evaluated how the admission into a university would impact the participation in the pre-med course retrospectively.
