Universities

In Germany, two distinctive medical university systems have come into effect recently as following:

  • German-taught medical universities
  • English-taught medical universities

German programs

  • Must have fluent German language skills (B2 = high-intermediate) level or higher
  • Either graduation from German/Austrian/Swiss secondary education
  • or 1-2 foundation year (*Studienkolleg) + special qualification exam (*competitive even with fluent German language skills)
  • Tuition Fee ranges $1,000 – $2,000 per year (*all-fee-inclusive, except for living cost)
  • Must deposit the “annual average living cost” at German banks (*this is called “Sparekonto,” which cannot be withdrawn more than $900 per month)

English program

  • Only 1 program currently active ☞ UMCH (located in Hamburg, Germany)
  • 100% English-taught
  • No German Skills required (*all foreign students take a mandatory German language course 6 hours per week for 2 years)
  • Easier entry than German exams
  • Affiliated German teaching hospitals from 3rd year (*allowing easier “Residency in Germany“)
  • Country-by-country additional qualification applied to non-EU high schools (*NOT based on the nationality of applicant)
  • Easier transfer from EU medical universities
  • Higher tuition fee than German programs (*less than 50% of average tuition fees at US medical schools)
  • Must deposit the “annual average living cost” at German banks (*this is called “Sparekonto,” which cannot be withdrawn more than $900 per month)
