The dream of studying medicine
The fight for study places in human medicine is a well-known complaint worldwide. For years, far more students apply to study medicine than available places. Therefore, they have to wait a lot of time until they are admitted to one university. Over the years, the situation has deteriorated further due to the big number of high-school graduates.
Great solution – going abroad
For many high school graduates, going abroad is a great opportunity to fulfil their dream of studying medicine. Moving to a foreign country is a unique experience for many high school graduates.

The new branch of an established university
You can fulfil your dream of studying medicine at the University Targu Mures Medical Campus Hamburg (UMCH) – in Germany, without waiting and top grades. The UMCH is a branch of the state University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Sciences and Technology of Targu Mures (UMFST of Targu Mures), which will allow 150 students per year to begin their medical studies in Hamburg as of September 2019.
The UMCH offers an innovative study concept at an attractive location, according to the latest state of scientific knowledge. The study program at the UMCH was developed on the basis of the standards and experiences of a prestigious and long-established university that has stood for excellence in research and teaching for many years. The campus in Hamburg-Bahrenfeld is over 4,000 m² in size, has been completely newly equipped since 2018 and has an excellent teaching and learning infrastructure, e.g. a virtual 3D anatomy and dissection table as well as high-tech lecture halls, seminar rooms, and laboratories.
Innovative educational concept
The opening of the UMCH means the development of a new and innovative study concept for future physicians that enables students to study medicine at a high-quality level in an international environment – without waiting time.
The study concept promotes students both professionally and personally. In medical teaching, the university pursues a holistic, interdisciplinary, practice-oriented and patient-related approach. Students should be encouraged constantly to think in a critical way and to exchange ideas among themselves and with their teachers. In addition to the professional qualification of the students, personality development and the systematic advancement of individual strengths and talents play an important role on the campus in Hamburg. The transfer of social, cultural and ethical values to society is also an essential part of medical teaching.
Promotion of talent
At the UMCH you are studying at a state university enjoying the advantages of a private university. Because the courses take place in small groups, you benefit from more intensive and personal guidance than in a lot of state university, where you usually have to share lecture halls and professors with hundreds of fellow students.
Studying in English
The language of instruction is English – high school graduates usually have sufficient language knowledge to study medicine in English. Don’t you have any concerns about that –
after all, most of our students are not necessarily native speakers. Besides, medical terminology is also taught in the first year. In the case of teaching at the bedside in German teaching hospitals, the language of education is of course German.
Studying medicine in English offers numerous advantages and opportunities. In order to keep up in an international research context, a solid knowledge of English is obligatory, as English is the standard for leading publications and symposia. By dealing with the English language on a daily base in everyday student life and by communicating with international students, language skills are continuously trained and developed. Thus the students lay the foundation for a successful medical career and can practise in Germany as well as abroad without any problems after graduation. Fluency in English is also an important skill for communicating with patients whose mother language is not German.
