THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Our application process consists of 5 steps
The first step consists of completing our online application form. It’s a straightforward biographical questionnaire, and you will also have the opportunity to upload a variety of required documents. This allows us to determine if you fulfil the formal criteria to study with us.
The second step consists of an Online Test provided by ITB Consulting GmbH. The test measures your general cognitive abilities using mathematical, verbal, and visual-spatial material. It is conducted in English and takes up to 45 minutes to complete. There’s no need for any special preparation for this test, but you may wish to brush up on basic math calculations.
The third step is an Online Interview. It is conducted in English by specially trained interviewers who assess your motivation and soft skills. It’s all about getting to know you and finding out why you want to study Human Medicine at EDU. The whole interview takes approximately 40 minutes.
Based on your Application Form, Online Test and Online Interview, EDU decides whether or not to provide you with a study offer. If you are accepted, you will receive an email with your study offer along with a request for a personal call. During the call, details regarding the contract, financing, and any open questions you have about studying with us will be discussed.
Once all questions have been clarified, you have signed the study contract, and we have received your first payment, you will be officially enrolled into the EDU study programme and will begin the on-boarding process with the next student cohort.

HOW OUR APPLICATION ROUNDS WORK
At EDU, students can start their studies in our Spring, Autumn or Winter terms which means our applications are open throughout the year.

Incomplete applications submitted too close to an application deadline will be processed in the following round.
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.
EDU TUITION FEES
At EDU we offer students a quality private education with yearly tuition fees. We have various financial aid options available for students eligible for financial support.
For the current 2019-2020 Academic Year our fees are €19,500 per year.
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.
Tuition Fee per term: €6,500
Total Tuition Fee for the Academic Year: €19,500 (3 terms per year)
Fees include a €6,000 matriculation fee payable once a student is accepted to their chosen degree programme and the study contract has been signed. The remaining balance (€13.500) is due two weeks before the beginning of the student’s first term.
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
As part of our commitment to ensuring the ability to pay does not restrict suitable students from pursuing a degree at EDU, we have developed various financial aid options to support eligible students throughout their studies.
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.
EDU Excellence Scholarship
The EDU Excellence Scholarship supports students who embody the values we seek to see in the next generation of medical practitioners and who are committed to contributing to the development of EDU as an institution.
This scholarship is granted for one year covering up to 50% of total tuition costs. Students can reapply after each academic year provided they maintain a grade average in final exams above 70% and contribute to the development of EDU as an institution.
