The National Kapodistrian University of Athens and its School of Medicine have launched a Medical Degree program in English for international students. Please be aware that the program admits international students following an internal procedure and has nothing to do with the acceptance of a list of expats by the Ministry of Education of Greece which is communicated every year.
NKUA and its School of Medicine laid their foundations back in 1837. Based in the vibrant Greek capital, NKUA has made internationalization a cornerstone of its 10-year Strategic Plan and already boasts 7,600 international students. It is without a doubt that the labor market is changing; as it becomes more and more global, open and competitive, it is the responsibility of Higher Education to equip students with the high skills required to thrive in this world.
Data collected through the School of Medicine Alumni Network show that 100% of the graduates, seeking employment abroad, eventually succeed in finding a job overseas.
Medical Degree in English is available exclusively to foreign nationals (of EU and non-EU countries) who have attended the last two years of High School (or equivalent Institution) in a country other than Greece. They should hold a High School diploma (or equivalent degree) obtained until July 2023, entitling them to admission to Higher Educational Institutions of their country of graduation.
In order for a student to obtain the MD degree the following are required: a) full attendance of at least 12 teaching semesters, of which the first 5 include pre-clinical courses and exercises, the next 4 include clinical courses and exercises, and the last 3 concern all-day clinical training in the main clinical specialties; b) a successful examination in the 48 compulsory and 12 elective courses; and c) an accumulation of a total of 360 ECTS credits.
