Here you can study in a Medical Doctor Program for 5 or 6 years, depending on your preference, and Dentistry Program for 5 years. Tuition fees for the first year are around €6200 for medicine and €4500 for dental medicine. From the second year and beyond, prices automatically go down by 25% ( €4650 for medicine, €3375 for dentistry)
The fee covers teaching materials, language enhancement courses (if needed), acknowledgement of prior learning as well as remaining student services.
Students must have a high school (or A-level) certificate confirming their grades for admission into the 6 or 5-year programme. Students with a university degree related to health science may be entered into the third year of medicine and study medicine in 4 years. You can get admission into the medical programme with no entrance exam.
The maximum year of entry for students from science-related degrees will be a 3rd-year entry (depending on qualifications), meaning the MD degree may be four years long. Students from Medicine (MBBS, MBS, MD) programmes may be able to transfer to higher than the 3rd year. However, based on our long years of on-field experience, we recommend that you look into Silesia University in Poland or Dnipro Medical Institute in Ukraine if you are looking for an accelerated medical course in dentistry or medicine.
