UMCH College Semester

Start your medical studies more knowledgable

Your way to studying medicine

Our 12-week College Semester is aimed at all those who, in addition to refreshing their knowledge from school, want to acquire additional medical know-how and prepare themselves in as much detail as possible for the admission procedure at UMCH. Besides biology, chemistry and physics, students are also taught in other areas that are important for medical studies. These include mathematics, biochemistry, anatomy and medical theory.

The advantage in knowledge that you gain from the course will give you self-confidence and motivation. In the course of the college semester, which is the foundation for your successful medical studies, you will acquire a considerable amount of scientific knowledge. This advantage will later be essential for your studies.

Classes take place in small practice groups on the premises of UMCH‘s campus in Hamburg. There will be daily blocks of time for follow-up work and for self-study of the extensive material. Thus, you will always have enough time to internalize the newly learned material. In addition, you will be specifically prepared for the admission procedure at UMCH.

Towards the end of the 12 weeks, all the topics covered will be repeated. Finally, you will get the chance take part in the admission procedure for your studies at UMCH.
