Human, Dental and Veterinary Medicine

The number of places in Medicine, Dental Medicine and Veterinary Medicine is limited. This is why you have to apply for these three branches of study earlier than for other courses. International applicants who have gained a bachelor's degree from a recognized university can only apply if they not only fulfill the general admission requirements (sections 1 and 5), but also meet the requirements as specified in Appendix 2 of the University Ordinance dated 09.12.2012.
