Pre-Health Course



The Pre-Health Course aims to meet the needs of high school graduates who wish to pursue a health education but who have taken few or none of the core science courses required for successful preparation to health school.

The course lasts from the beginning of October 2017 to the end of May 2018 and is divided into two semesters. All classes are conducted in English. It is assumed that the level of English of the students is roughly equivalent to Level A2. Prior to the course, students will be asked to write a placement test, so that the classes of particular groups are best suited to their needs to help them achieve at least B2 level. As the main objective of the course is to prepare students for their studies at university, they are expected to pass IELTS academic examination at the end of the course to receive an international recognition of their skills.
