The Medical Programme will offer a 3-year Bachelor before the end of this year and a 2-year Master in Medicine that is awaiting accreditation and should be offered in the following year. With a total of more than 4,500 hours in theoretical instruction and hands-on clinical training, the resulting degree will be certified with a minimum of 300 ECTS, equivalent to EU standards for medical training.

Theoretical content is made available to students online in a digital learning environment, where they receive tutorials, feedback and continuous assessment of learning progress.
