The world of technology is continuously evolving. And with it - the world of medicine.
The changing global circumstances force us to seek alternative ways to study medicine. Naturally, teaching online was quickly utilised.
But is it a good idea to apply for an online medical course now? - Yes, of course.
Studying medicine online is now a viable option. There are courses specifically designed to be taught online. Digital learning is not an obstacle - it’s a privilege when an onsite option is not suitable for you.
Entry requirements for studying medicine online are the same as studying at the university. The only difference is the entrance exams - they will also be online, either via communication apps like Skype, Zoom, or using a web platform like Google Classroom. Since it's a dedicated online course different from the regular one, you won't be competing for entry with regular programme applicants.
✔️ Kharkiv Institute of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is the only option available for such a course where years 1 to 3 will be studied entirely online.
Education plays a vital role in our lives, and medical schools will always look for ways to make studying possible, more efficient, and more effective for you as a student.
Medlink Students partners with universities that have quickly adapted an online form of education. We work with some of the most technologically advanced and accommodating institutions for those who wish to study medicine online in English.
Virtual classes allow students to study medicine at their own pace with the option provided by the Kharkiv Institute of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. Their programme is attended online only, and you can do your clinical rotations in the UK (or your home country) in years 4 -6.
Note: Due to the increasing popularity and high demand, spaces are very limited. Enquire now to consult with an expert advisor on how suitable this course could be for you.
At the moment, we can offer undergraduate medical courses in English. Tuition fees are around £ 5000 per year and include all study materials and video recordings provided by the university.
The fees also cover the expenses for creating and maintaining an exclusive online portal. Its purpose is to store data such as documents, calendars, projects, study materials, and more for access anytime, anywhere.
While this option, or opportunity, is fairly new, some students are sceptical about studying medicine online and if it’s even possible. The short answer is, “yes, it is possible, and it works perfectly fine.” But you are not here for the short answer, so let us explain.
Doctors will teach this flexible and full-time programme. It is designed specifically for online students, with schedules and curriculums to ensure the smoothest learning experience.
Students will have video seminars using Zoom or Google Classroom, where they will have the opportunity to cooperate and reach out to their tutors.
Attending classes as scheduled is compulsory. Absences must be compensated with a lesson outside the regular schedule.
Live lectures will be recorded, so you can always go back and review the material. This is exactly where the online portal mentioned above comes in handy. The portal is loaded with all kinds of study materials to help you prepare and ace the exams.
The examination sessions will also be online, and you will need to have a web camera. Exams will be Multiple choice questions (MCQ) and oral discussions. This will help teachers assess your understanding of the subjects learned throughout the semester.
We’re all hoping that student life in Ukraine goes back to normal as soon as possible. Because we cannot predict when this will happen, you have the option to organise the clinical rotations in your home country.
The university will recognise your rotations if you provide the proper documentation from your hospital of choice.
Yes, your online medical degree will be recognised. The only difference between a regular course and an online one is the way you attend – physically versus digitally. Simple as that.
Since the university is properly accredited and its degree is recognised all over the world, you won’t have to worry about finding a job as a doctor. As long as you study hard and pass your exams, you will reap the fruits of your labour.
Yes. You can study medicine online for the first 3 years.
Absolutely, yes. Some of the universities we work with offer excellent video seminars using Zoom or Google Classroom to teach the pre-clinical subjects (years 1-3).
There isn't a full 6 years online medical course because the last 3 years of medical education are practical.
The annual tuition fees are about £ 5000.
