Basic tasks
The basic tasks of the Division are to work out the structure of teaching languages at the Faculty as well as to provide lessons and prepare our students for passing the language exam which is necessary for them to obtain their degree. The English or German courses are compulsory for the students who gained admission to the Faculty of Health in 2015 or the following years, unless they held the language exam certificate required in the training programme.  
The Dean of the Faculty of Health highlights the importance of language learning, therefor the number of lessons within the framework of language learning has risen.
General English and German courses: ​

  • 1st semester 70 lessons
  • 2nd semester 70 lessons
  • 3rd semester 56 lessons

Professional English and German courses

  • 4th semester 42 lessons
  • 5th semester 42 lessons

Besides the compulsory courses we also offer optional ones with 28 lessons per semester to target either the oral or the written part of the language exam.
Latin is a compulsory course during the first 2 semesters. Its aim is to provide the necessary medical terminology for the students to make it easier to acquire Anatomy and other professional subjects relying heavily on Latin.
The regulations concerning language learning can be found in the Study and Exam Regulations:
