Kassel Open Day

Kassel School of Medicine held its first open day for prospective students on 26 January 2013

Dr Clare Polack, BM(EU) Programme Director, and two Southampton medical students, Hanna Thiel and Kawther Raji, travelled to Germany to take part.

The day was attended by about 60 potential applicants plus parents, the press and other interested parties. There were formal talks, tours and lots of opportunities for informal questions.

Everyone there seemed very enthusiastic about the BM(EU) with one German GP saying that he found it so interesting he wished he could start studying medicine again to do this programme.

Potential applicants came from a variety of backgrounds and appeared to relish the opportunity to study in two countries and learn about two health systems.

Participants were asked what they liked best about the open day, and as well as the ‘very interesting and informative presentations’ they highlighted the ‘insights into student life’ given by Hanna and Kawther.
