Medical studies in Martin

In order to successfully complete a semester, students must earn 30 ECTS points (credit points). During the entire study period of six years, this results in 360 ECTS points that must be achieved in order to successfully complete the degree programme.

The education at the Jessenius Faculty includes a strict curriculum. In most subjects, there are small tests every week to keep the students up to date. The compulsory courses (practicals) are held in groups of 10 - so you always have optimal contact with the teaching professors or doctors.

The small groups are formed in the first semester and continue until graduation. This means that you study together and make friends for life. The lectures, on the other hand, are held jointly for all students of a year.

Admission procedure

In order to start your dream degree programme in Martin, you have to clear one last hurdle. You must successfully pass the entrance exam. The entrance exam takes the form of a written single-choice test consisting of an equal number of biology and chemistry questions. The content of the entrance test does not exceed the content of a complete secondary school education in biology and chemistry.

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.
