Admission procedure

In order to start your dream of studying medicine abroad at the Charles University of Pilsen in the Czech Republic, you have to overcome one last hurdle: Because before the university allocates study places, you must have successfully passed the entrance exam. The entrance exam for a place to study medicine takes the form of a written single-choice test, which consists of biology, chemistry and physics questions. The content of the entrance test does not exceed the content of a complete secondary school education in the subjects of biology, chemistry and physics.

If it's been a while since you went to school, or if you didn't take one of the two subjects in the upper school, don't worry. In our video courses, we have prepared the required learning content for biology and chemistry in a didactic and easy-to-understand way. In addition, we offer you the opportunity to take sample entrance tests. In this way, you can see how well you are likely to do before you take the actual test. Based on these test results, you will know whether you are sufficiently prepared or whether you should repeat the video course.

In addition, we organise preparatory courses every year that are tailored to the entrance test at Charles University. This way, you can take the exam in Pilsen under the best possible conditions. The entrance exams are organised by futuredoctor together with the Charles University in Pilsen. The exams take place several times a year at different locations in Germany (e.g. in Regensburg, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt) and Austria (usually in Vienna).

Study medicine without numerus clausus and with a specialised baccalaureate

Unlike in Germany, Charles University in Pilsen allows anyone to study medicine without an NC. This means that your previous grade point average is not relevant. In addition, you have the opportunity to study medicine in the Czech Republic with a specialised baccalaureate.
