Course of studying

As the few English medical schools in Hungary, the aforementioned offer a flexible program so no other language qualifications are required. The exact procedure and formation of the study process are a little different from other universities to make it most effective.


  • The first 3 years consist of the so-called pre-clinical studies, which include anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, biophysics etc.
  • The next 2 years are therefore clinical subjects such as general surgery, cardiology, neurology etc.
  • The 6th and final year is a general internship covering all the clinical courses. It also consists of exams after which you are awarded a Medical degree that is recognized throughout the whole of Europe.

If you wish you can also come back to the UK and work as a well-respected doctor or complete your specialisation.
