Faculty of Medicine
„E-learning preparatory courses are for students who intend to study General Medicine, Dentistry or Physiotherapy in English language.

The goal of the course is revising high school knowledge of Biology, deeper understanding to cell biology and human biology in a broad context, and practicing the elementary knowledge required for the entrance examination.

Description of the course: this course consists of several units (see the course contents) which specify the theoretical backgrounds needed for understanding the given topic. Each unit contains a short test providing feedback on partial knowledge, and a discussion group serving as space for participants’ communication with their tutors. The course is concluded with a final test similar to the actual entrance examination test; its score informs the participant about their chance to pass the entrance exam.
