How many years does it take to complete MBBS in Germany?

Study of medicine or MBBS in Germany is taught only in Germany language.  Hence before you start your studies it is mandatory to acquire German language skills. In addition to that starting, an MBBS degree in Germany is only possible if you have a higher school education certificate equivalent to German abitur. Majority of the Indian school examination boards are not equivalent to German abitur except in some cases with boards like IB. Hence after completing 12th from India you need to join M-studienkollege in Germany for a duration of 1 year and it concludes with the final assessment test of “Feststellungsprüfung” (FSP). It is only after you successfully complete the assessment test you can start the 1st year of your MBBS study in German public universities. Study of medicine in Germany is divided into 4 stages:

  • Pre-Clinical phase – The 1st phase of MBBS studies is for four semesters which is called as pre-clinical phase. Apart from the study, it is mandatory to complete the first aid training and 90 days of nursing service in this phase. It concludes with the 1st phase of medical examinations.

 

  • Clinical Phase – This phase comprises of 6 semesters. This phase involves studies of internal medicine, propaedeutics, surgical subjects, nervous and sensory systems, internships and general medicine. This concludes with the second phase of medical examination

 

  • Practical year – The third phase of MBBS study is focused on bedside training.  After the completion of pre-clinical phase and clinical phase the university entrusts the students with the responsibility of taking care of the patients under the guidance of the faculties. This phase consists of 2 semester’s. It generally includes a mandatory 16 weeks each of bedside clinical training in internal medicine, surgery and an elective subject. This concludes with the third phase of medical examination.

 

  • State examination – State examination or approbation (regulation of the licensing of doctors) takes place in 3 stages. The 1st exam is after the completion of pre-clinical phase. The 2nd exam after the completion of clinical phase. The 3rd exam after the completion of practical year. After successfully completion of this exam the student can earn the medical license in Germany to start the practice. 

Hence the total number of study years for MBBS in Germany is:

1 yr studienkollege + 2 yr pre-clinical phase + 3 year clinical phase + 1 yr practical year + state exam (within 1-3 months post practical year) = Approximately 7 year & 2/3 months

 

How much does it cost to study MBBS in Germany?

The cost of studying MBBS in Germany is very nominal as compared to any other developed country or even less than studying MBBS in India. Since the German public universities are state-funded hence the student doesn’t have to pay tuition fees however there is a small amount of semester contribution that is charged which approximately varies between 100-500 Euros/semester (INR 8000- INR 40000) as per university norms.  Click on the video to know the monthly living expenditure in Germany for students.

Document Checklist for German Job Seeker Visa

Germany has gained huge fame amongst the students and the job aspirants in recent years. It is the largest economy in Europe and has a significant German-language presence throughout the European region. Germany has fast-growing industries which need skilled labour, making it a good opportunity for candidates who are STEM graduates. The STEM stands for Science Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

The German Job Seeker Visa gives you an opportunity to search for a job in Germany during our stay there. It is basically a long-term residence permit in Germany for people wanting a job. You can move to Germany for 6 months and look for the most suitable job for yourself and if it fits you, then you may continue with that. The validity of this visa is generally for 6 months, which is a good time period for searching a decent job matching your profile. After finding the job, you need to convert this job seeker visa into work visa in Germany so that you work and live in Germany as an immigrant. The noteworthy thing about the job seeker visa is that it doesn’t allow you to start working in Germany immediately. It only enables you to stay in Germany and look for a job. Below are some important guidelines about the eligibility and requirements for this visa.

Eligibility

You need to fulfil the following conditions if you wish to be eligible to apply for the job seeker visa:

  • A Bachelor of Master’s Degree equivalent to a German University Degree is a must.
  • 5 years of experience in your field of study is essential.
  • You have to show proof of enough funds to support your stay in Germany.
  • You need to get medical insurance to stay in Germany till the time you get your Work Permit or for the complete period.

Documents Required

After you confirm your eligibility, you need to gather the various documents essential to support your application for the visa. These documents work as an assurance for the immigration officers. You must attach the most accurate set of documents to assure a smooth process. The required documents along with the German job seeker visa application are as follows:

  • Valid passport.
  • Visa Application form.
  • A4 size copy of your passport’s data page.
  • 3 passport size pictures according to biometric specifications.
  • Cover letter.
  • Proof of educational qualification.
  • Your resume.
  • Proof of accommodation in Germany.
  • Proof of financial resources/funds.
  • Bank account statement as proof that you can support your stay in Germany.
  • Obligation letter from a sponsor (if any) in Germany is needed
  • Documents regarding your personal status proof in your home country (like birth certificate, Aadhar card, marriage certificate etc. with English translation)
  • Health Insurance proof

The submission of the above-mentioned documents alone does not guarantee the approval of your job seeker visa. It majorly depends on the accuracy & valid documents that you submitted. If the documents and the reason for your visit to Germany are well prepared then only your visa application would be approved. After the document submission, an interview will be scheduled with the immigration officer. It will be a tough task to attain a visa easily. So, it’s really important that the documents, the interview, the background check and the application form are as per the requirement.

We recommend you to carry cash of Rs.40000 during your interview which will be submitted to the embassy as part of the document verification process. You have to prepare two application sets with the above-mentioned documents and also bring your original certificates along. However, additional documents can be asked during the process, especially for certain professionals like doctors, teachers, nurses etc. Submission of incomplete documentation can lead to visa application rejection. An important guideline is that the immigration officer might come to your place to check the validity of the documents that have been submitted. The approximate time for visa processing by the embassy takes around 2, 3 months.

Do not miss the important tips  if you are applying for a German job seeker visa:

Take a look at frequently asked jobseeker visa interview questions by the German consulate.

We at Rcare offer complete job seeker visa services right from the document preparation, visa appointment, cover letter preparation, preparing you with German language classes & mock interview sessions.
