7. Possibilities for exemption

Candidates for the General Medicine or the Dentistry Programs, possessing a B.A. or B.Sc. degree or currently studying for that in a medicine-related field (at least 1 year completed at the time of application) are encouraged to apply, as early during the application period as possible. They may be exempted from the entrance examination and afterwards there is a possibility to get the previous studies recognized, too. Please note that possessing an IB diploma does not make you eligible for exemption.

(Recognition of previous studies).

For this we need information about your:

A) academic background: official copy of your degree and official transcript of your studies (in English)

B) language knowledge:  B2 level language examination (such as Cambridge FCE/CAE, TOEFL, IELTS),  or if English is your mother tongue a copy of your passport for proof.

After applying online first, and after paying the application fee, please send us the above documents (hard copies) as part of your full application file, based on which a final decision will be made. Please note that you can only request exemption from taking an exam by submitting the relevant hard copy documents by post to our postal address; electronic soft copies of transcripts will not be considered. Please note that we do not provide preliminary judgements, your exemption request will only be examined in case we receive your complete application file.

If your application for the exemption from taking the entrance exam is accepted, you do not need to take an entrance exam. However, if it is not accepted, you can take the entrance exam to get accepted. In that case please note that the decision on acceptance to one of our programs is solely based on your performance at the entrance examination.

Please note that we are ready to accept applicants with exemption only at the beginning of the application period, therefore we will not be able to accept exemption requests after May 31, 2023 for the academic year 2023/2024.
