Medicine: Is it your dream to study Medicine in Europe and live in a country full of diversity? If this is your case, you can now receive an excellent education at Zagreb’s School of Medicine with its 6-year degree, which ends with the awarding of an MD title once you complete it. The biggest faculty of Medicine in Croatia gives you now the chance to study an internationally recognised degree, in the USA (USMLE) and in Europe. Basic knowledge is first taught, so that students can apply it at a later stage, during the clinical part of the studies. The School of Medicine boasts a long tradition in educating international students and it has had a study programme in English since 2003.


The School of Medicine at the University in Zagreb is in the city centre, near the Ribnjak park. Zagreb gives you the great opportunity to study Medicine while discovering one of the most diverse European cultures. Its more than 800 000 inhabitants make Zagreb the largest city in Croatia, as well as the political and economic centre in the country. Although the city has recently seen a fast economic development, it has been able to keep the essence of its beauty and its relaxed atmosphere. The city is surrounded by the Medvednica mountains, located in the northwest of the country. The carvings on the 19th century façades, made by hand, are similar to those in the most beautiful European cities, like Vienna or Prague. Zagreb still counts as a charming old European town, in spite of having become a large international city.


The admission to the School of Medicine of the University in Zagreb is decided according to the results you obtain on an admission test. But you do not need to be afraid, as the exam is not difficult and you will be able to pass just with a little preparation. DEM will send you all necessary study material. The written admission test is made up of 40 questions for each of these fields: Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and it is followed by a very general interview, during which the results of the examination will be communicated to the candidates.
