    Programs available in English
    The English program is 15 years old, and over 600 international students have successfully completed their studies and earned a degree in the field of General medicine or Dentistry.

    The Faculty of Medicine provides university study for international students in two medical branches:

    •General Medicine - the course lasts 6 years (12 terms)
    •Dental Medicine - the course lasts 6 years (12 terms)
    Both - General Medicine and Dental Medicine - are available for international students with a good command of English. The Faculty of Medicine is closely connected with the Teaching Hospital in Košice, in which practical education in clinical disciplines is carried out.

    The last years of study are concerned with practical training in hospitals and health care institutes. The study is completed by the state examinations before the Board of the Faculty Experts. Graduates are awarded the academic title "Doctor of General Medicine", abbreviated “MUDr.” (equivalent to M.D. degree) and “Doctor of Dental Medicine”, abbreviated “MDDr.” (equivalent to D.M.D.).

    In those professions where the conditions of education in Slovakia are identical with those in the European Union, which have already been recognized (medical and dental doctors), the member states of the European Union are obliged to accept the diplomas issued in Slovakia, irrespective of the language of instruction.

    The Credit System
    From the academic year 2001/2002 in line with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) the credit system was implemented. That system enables access to courses within EU countries. The ECTS stimulates mobility by allowing students to study abroad, yet still having full academic recognition at the host university. It also creates curriculum transparency further improving the recognition of degrees.

    About the Faculty of Medicine
    The Faculty of Medicine was established in 1948 as a branch of the Faculty of Medicine of the Slovak University, later called Comenius University in Bratislava. Then in 1959, the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Philosophy merged, which led to the foundation of a new university in Eastern Slovakia, called Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice.

    The Faculty of Medicine at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice closely co-operates with many significant universities and institutions in: Prague, Paris, Nantes, Bordeaux, Padova, Essen, Giessen, Düsseldorf, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Zürich, Turku, Oulu, Salamanca, Krakow and others.

    As a state university Pavol Jozef Šafárik University functions under the auspices of the Ministry of Education. It is accredited according to the rules and regulations of the Higher Education Act of the Slovak Republic.

    In those professions where the conditions of education in Slovakia are identical with those in the European Union, which have already been recognized (medical and dental doctors), the member states of the European Union are obliged to accept the diplomas issued in Slovakia, irrespective of the language of instruction.

    Application Procedure
    The applicants must satisfactorily pass the entrance examination in Chemistry and Biology in written form (multiple choices tests). Since the language of instruction is English, applicants should possess good command of English as well.

    Documents to be submitted
    The following documents should be attached as originals or as attested copies (verified by notary). Notary authorized translations are required in the case the documents are issued in a different language than Slovak or English.

    1.To the application for the study:

    ◦Signed Application form
    ◦Medical confirmation about medical ability to university studies
    ◦Confirmation about entrance exam fee payment
    ◦School leaving certificate
    ◦Copy of passport / ID card
    2.To the registration in the year 1:

    ◦CV
    ◦Birth certificate.
    ◦Three passport - size photographs
    ◦School leaving certificate in the case the applicant took the entrance exam before state exam at secondary school
    Entrance examination fee: 50 EUR

    Residence Permit
    Students coming from EU or EEA countries do not need student visa, but have to apply for a residence permit within 90 days after their arrival to Slovakia.

    The students coming from the other countries need student visa which is possible to obtain on Embassy or Consulate of The Slovak Republic.

    The address of Immigration Office (foreign police) is:

    •Oddelenie cudzineckej a pasovej služby KR PZ Košice
    •Trieda SNP 35
    •040 11 Košice
    •The Slovak Republic
    •Phone No. +421-55-0961 911 111
    Health Insurance
    Students should provide health insurance for themselves for the duration of their study in the Slovak Republic. The payment is required for any medical treatment.

    Students from EU countries should have an insurance policy valid for Slovakia, which is also a prerequisite for Registration.

    Such insurance policy can also be obtained in Slovakia as we

    Housing
    Dormitories are available on campus. International students usually stay in two-rooms apartments with shared bathroom (kitchen is not available in the apartment. Students, however, have access to a kitchen in each floor). For a single room (with shared bathroom) you pay (approx. 100 EUR/months).

    Renting an apartment in town is also an opportunity. Approximate cost of a one bedroom flat is about 6 000 SKK/month (approx. 180 EUR) plus utility. A three-rooms flat in the center may vary from 10 to 16.000 SKK/months (10.000 SKK is the average – approx. 300 EUR) plus utility. Students usually share such flats.

    First year students are encouraged to move to the dormitory at the beginning, they can then look for other housing opportunities during the first few weeks.

    I agree with Tris. It's patently obvious that this agency it tooting its own horn.

    Also, you do NOT need an agency to study in Bulgaria. I have not yet met a foreign student here who has had a good experience with an agency. Not one.

    I agree. Agents are not necessary. Directly contact the university and apply through them. No need to waste thousands of euros on agents.

    Hello everyone
    with agents, its complicated. Recently I heard about 2 Indian guys, who came to Kosice and asked for residence permit. They did not know in advance, which documents they need - one of them was police certificate (proving that they have not commited any crime in India). They did not bring it (or it was more than 90 days old) so they were sent back to India.
    When you are from Europe, you probably would not face these problems. maybe only sworn translator is located directly in Slovakia and you must use service of Slovak translatoin for your documents. Otherwise there should not be big problems when applying.
    And now to Minaret Ltd - when you go to section FAQ there is written: When i sit the exam do i have to leave money with the university to secure my place?
    A. Yes, you would have to pay a reservation fee of 1000 euros and this would secure your place at the university.
    This is either lie or bribery. There is standard entrance examination and if you score more than 70%, you are admitted.
    If anyone wishes, I can help him / her Free of charge Leave me a PM
