ACADEMIC CALENDAR

The academic year at EDU is structured around Learning Modules of 14 weeks each. Each module consists of four elements:

  • The first 8 weeks of a module represent the online learning phase during which students learn the theoretical bases of the module in question.
  • This is followed by a flex week, (“flexible week”) during which students take one examination and travel to their clinical rotation hospital.
  • The third part of each module, the clinical rotation in a teaching hospital, consists of four weeks of practical training.
  • Another flex week at the end of each module allows for the repetition of exams and travel back to the student’s place of residence.

Summer break lasts around 8 weeks from calendar weeks 26 to 37, and winter break consists of 2 weeks, taking place in the last and first week of the year.

TUITION FEES

OUR COMMITTMENT

At EDU we have made a commitment to supporting talented and dedicated students who are passionate about studying medicine. 

Therefore, a student’s ability to pay is not part of our admission decision. Instead we focus on the dedication, motivation and academic ability of our future students and support them with various financial aid options.

FEES BREAKDOWN

Tuition Fee per Term: €6,500

Total Tuition Fee for the Academic Year: €19,500 (3 Terms per year)

ADDITIONAL COSTS

As well as your accommodation and living costs while you study, there are also additional costs incurred for any repeated modules. Information about this is available in the Tuition and Fees Regulations, 2020.

FINANCIAL AID AT EDU

CHANCEN EG

EDU Medical has partnered with CHANCEN eG to provide students with a fair financial solution to cover their tuition fees at EDU. With an Income Share Agreement (ISA), students focus on their studies while enrolled into our medical degree programmes and let CHANCEN eG pay their fees. Following the successful completion of their studies and graduation, students start to pay back their tuition fees with income-based repayments over 8 years.

Students first submit their application to study at EDU. They then can apply for an ISA with CHANCEN eG. Once EDU confirms the student’s place on our degree programme there is an interview with CHANCEN eG. If successful, students sign a financial contract and CHANCEN eG will pay the student’s tuition fees directly to EDU for the duration of their studies.

CHANCEN eG has the following parameters for students applying for an Income Share Agreement for their studies at EDU Medical.

  • Accepted onto an EDU Medical degree programme
  • Maximum funding available: 45.000 Euro
  • Repayments are income-based and paid over 8 years following graduation
  • Annual Minimum Income Threshold (Net): 21.000€

CHANCEN eG is a cooperative and social enterprise initiative founded in 2016 to give students access to a fairer financial solution for their tuition fees. CHANCEN eG and EDU Medical have partnered together to enable EDU Medical students to receive financial support from CHANCEN eG.

Every student becomes a shareholder of the CHANCEN cooperative with payment of 100€. Repayments are only made after graduation when students annual net income is 21.000€ or above.

For more information and to start your application for financial support from CHANCEN eG, please visit www.chancen-eg.de/en/partner/edu

EDU BURSARY

The EDU Bursary is a performance and needs-based financial aid provided by EDU to students who meet the requirements for this needs-based financial support. It is allocated on a year by year basis. Students apply for the EDU Bursary for each year of their studies.

Student

Students who perform within the top 20% and require financial support are eligible to apply for our needs-based financial aid programme.

EDU uses a Distributed Allocation Approach to assign the funds available for our needs-based financial aid. The distribution of this bursary considers the student’s performance position and their level of financial need in determining eligibility.

Distributed Allocation Approach allows EDU to offer the EDU Bursary to those who need it, and who have the necessary performance requirements. For example, should the 1st, 2nd and 4th top performing students not require financial aid but the 3rd and 5th performance position students do, the funds would be allocated to the 3rd and 5th positioned students.

Prospective students can apply for financial aid once their application has been successful and their place at EDU confirmed. The EDU Admissions Team are available to prospective students with information on applying for financial aid and the application deadlines.

To be considered for financial aid, students should submit the following documents to the EDU Admissions Team:

Income statement of payee (parents/spouse)
Most recent tax declaration of payee (parents/spouse)
Income statement of the student
Most recent tax declaration of the student
