The Application Process: Easy as 1, 2, 3

Thank you for your interest in EDU Medical College! The application process is divided into 3 simple steps, and includes a registration fee of €50 (If applicant is successful, the Application Fee of €50 would be deducted from the students first school fees payment) This 3-step process gives us the opportunity to get to know you better, hear your story and learn all about the things which make you unique. This will be your chance to share your experience in the world of medicine and to help us understand your unique skill set, ambitions, and career aspirations. This is equally our turn to introduce ourselves, and to help you get to know us! It is through this inclusive, and personalized application process that we’ve been able to build the strong community which is such a hallmark of the EDU student experience.

Step 1
Application

The first step consists of filling out our online application form; a straightforward biographical questionnaire allowing us to confirm you fulfill the formal criteria for admission into an institution of higher learning. You will have the opportunity to upload a variety of required documents, and our admissions team will be happy to personally guide you through this process.

Before you apply: please familiarize yourself with our application guidelines and required documents.

Step 2
Online Test

The second step consists of a simple two-part online test. The first part is similar to an SSAT, SAT and/or GMAT format, but focuses primarily on assessing cognitive skills. The second part consists of a challenge, where applicants are tasked with solving a problem in a medical context. This process ensures our admissions team can assess all applications on objective criteria, guaranteeing a fair and equitable experience for all applicants.

Step 3
Video Conference Call

The third step is the most fun and is our favourite, as it is when we finally get to “meet” you via a video conferencing conversation! It’s equally an opportunity to introduce ourselves, allowing you to get to know us a bit better too. We want to hear your personal story and about your experience in the world of medicine. Tell us about your skills, your dreams, and your career aspirations. There’s no time limit to this process either, so let’s just go with the flow, and enjoy!

This chat is the 3rd and final step required of you as an applicant. The rest is up to our Admissions team.
*Please note that this call is conducted in English.

Academic Calendar

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

 

  1. The first eight weeks of a module represent the online learning phase during which students learn the theoretical bases of the module in question. 
  2. This is followed by a flex week, (“flexible week”) during which students only have to sit one examination. This gives students the opportunity to travel to the site of the subsequent clinical rotation.
  3. The third part of each module, the clinical rotation in a teaching hospital, consists of four weeks of practical training.
  4. 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. Every module thus lasts 14 weeks.

 

Three modules, 14 weeks each: This leaves ten weeks for the summer and winter breaks. Summer break should be around eight weeks, winter break around two, depending on the calendar year. For internal organizational reasons at EDU, the vacation periods are set and will be within the range of the calendar weeks 26 to 37. The calendar week 52, i.e. the last week of the year, is intended as a holiday break for all students. This also applies to the first calendar week of each new year.

Code of Conduct / Statutes & Byelaws

We are so proud of the positive atmosphere that defines the EDU experience. In fact, we see it as a sacred entity unto itself. We have always held ourselves and our instructors to the highest standards, and we expect the same from our student community. The spirit of our community is defined by a few unshakeable cornerstones; to be responsible, respectful, appreciative, and supportive. The statutes and regulations built into our Code of Conduct enable this trust and remind us of our shared responsibility to protect each and every member of our community.

As such, and for the sake of our community, we are committed to sanctioning individuals in breach of the rules and regulations, up to and including expulsion from the programme.

Unacceptable is any kind of ill-intended behaviour or action taken towards others, including but not limited to misbehaviour in research and scholarly activities, sexual misconduct of any kind, including sexual and gender-based harassment and violence, domestic and intimate partner violence, and stalking and bullying. To certify their understanding of EDU’s Code of Conduct, students are required to submit a signed copy of the EDU Code of Conduct upon enrolment. Students are responsible for making use of the available resources to maintain high ethical standards.

Virtual campus life flourishes when the community is in harmony with our common-sense values. The result is the safe, inclusive, and engaging atmosphere for learning and working together.
