About European University Georgia

European University in Tbilisi, Georgia, gained its status as a teaching university in 2011 by the decision of the Board of Authorisation of Educational Institutions. The university started to implement new programmes in law, business, medicine, humanities and social sciences with bachelor’s and master’s degree levels.

The Faculty of Medicine of the European University of Georgia started operating in 2014. The university invested in modernising its campus and hiring well-known experts in the field with many years of medical and pedagogical experience.

Many international students who wish to study medicine in English abroad choose this medical university because of the variety of teaching and evaluation approaches. Future doctors have the opportunity to master theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

Furthermore, the university has taken care of clerkships and bedside teaching by signing agreements with around 60 clinics all around Georgia. Thus, you don’t worry about organisational details and focus on learning instead.

In addition, European University is the owner of Jo Ann University Hospital. The medical centre has been a primary provider of cardiology and cardiac surgery in Georgia for 25 years now. Moreover, it is the country's first hospital specialising in newborn and pediatric heart surgery. Imagine all that you can learn here during your clinical hours.

Being a student of the European University in Tbilisi is a remarkable journey through the medical world. It starts with the micro pieces that build bodies and travel through human anatomy and how it works. In the first years, young scholars attend lectures and study the most modern medical literature. Soon after, medical students go through simulated real-life situations to gain both experience and confidence.

While simulators are exciting and can teach many new skills, nothing beats real-life experience. And the major clinics that cooperate with the university provide plenty of it. You will face real situations with real patients and get a taste of what it means to be a doctor.

What makes this university most preferable among other medical schools in Georgia is its constant investment in growing and developing extracurricular activities and research. Every technology and literature matters when it comes to medicine and the growth of the student’s knowledge. That’s why European University Georgia doesn’t spare money when it comes to the right way of education.

Currently, the university has Medicine and Dentistry programmes fully taught in English. As in most European universities, the medical course is awarded a Medical Doctor (MD) degree after successful graduation. The Dentistry programme earns a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree.

Courses

The university offers graduate entry medical programmes and welcomes student transfers.

The university is located at 76 D. Guramishvili Avenue, 0141, Tbilisi, Georgia.

Extracurricular and Leisure Activities

Tbilisi’s European University’s students are well-prepared, which allows them to participate in medical championships and competitions constantly. Aspiring doctors here can compete for cash prizes, though travelling around the world to acquire new medical skills and knowledge is a sufficient reward. 

The European University team won 3rd place among 213 other competitors in the 2nd International Diagnostic Championship. They were awarded gift cards and an inSimu Premium subscription, a simulator app for medical situations.

The university encourages future doctors with a love for sports. There are volleyball, basketball, dance and futsal teams which wait for their champions. Indeed, students never lack recreational activities because the school organises graduation, welcome, and new year parties.

Accreditation

Graduating from this medical school means a globally recognised diploma, the right to continue your studies or start practising in the student’s preferred country.

The European University in Tbilisi, Georgia is listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools, recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO). It is also accredited by the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER). In addition, the university is a member of the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) and the Association for Medical Schools in Europe (AMSE).

We helped one graduate from the European University register their primary medical qualification (PMQ) successfully with the GMC in early 2022. After assessing the PMQ MD degree via the eligibility registration process, the General Medical Council added the university as an institution awarding medical qualifications in their database. The MD programme, curriculum, and study hours were approved by the GMC. Hence, the GMC concluded that the university programme meets their registration eligibility as they had no concerns about the qualification. After approval of the graduate's documents was registered, the remaining part is for the graduate doctor to pass the exams for provisional or full registration for licensing to practice.

Life as a Medical Student in Tbilisi, Georgia

Tbilisi is an old and intricate city to explore. It was created 1,300 years ago to serve as the new capital of the Iberian king, who needed a town that was easy to defend. Tbilisi’s location in the Caucasus mountains along the Mtkvari river was a purely defensive choice, but the consequences 13 centuries later are genuinely spectacular. 

The capital stretches on both sides of the Mtkvari, which cools the air in the hot Georgian summers. Meanwhile, the roads wind around the hills of the Lower Caucasus, and each climb upwards rewards wanderers with glorious sights of the city.

Speaking of sights, Tbilisi has plenty of those, both natural and man-made. The Old Town has architectural marvels like Orthodox cathedrals, public libraries, theatres, and the breathtaking Parliament. Bridges are another sight to behold in Georgia, and young students feel pleased to place love lock charms on them. It is a common sight, considering the student population in the city. 

Local universities claim 35,000 students, and about 5,000 of them are international students. Each school has its international community, but there are city-wide clubs and groups with no affiliation limits for participants. 

Naturally, the local nightlife is booming with so many young people. International DJs are a common sight in the local clubs, and fans of subtler delights can always find comfort in the local cuisine and the millennia-old wine tradition.

Tbilisi indeed sounds and looks like a lifetime experience. Fortunately, you can learn even more about it from the horse's mouth in this Q&A session with a European University graduate.
