Kassel School of Medicine:
Study in Southampton

Southampton is a significant south English Harbour town with a population of 220.000 residents. It is about 130 kilometres southwest of London and can be reached by car via clearway or by train and Bus. The London airports Heathrow and Gatwick offer many regular flight connections to important European cities. There are also smaller airports at Southampton and Bournemouth.

The University of Southampton was founded in 1862 and is one of the strongest research universities in Great Britain. It is part of the Russel Group, an elite group of 20 universities, which together receive two thirds of the public research funds in Great Britain.

The University of Southampton consists of eight faculties, with 17.000 Undergraduate and 7.000 Graduate students overall. The medical faculty was founded in 1971 and was the first medical faculty in Great Britain which started the early student-patient contact beginning in the first year of study.

Further information about the University of Southampton can be found here.

Study places at the University of Southampton are highly desired which can be seen from the high number of applicants for 250 places each year (5.000 applicants in 2013). Because of the cooperation with Kassel, 24 additional study places are available each year that are exclusively for the BM(EU) programme.

The main teaching hospital in Southampton is the prestigious Southampton General Hospital which was founded in 1900. Southampton General Hospital is a publicly owned and run by University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trusts. The 7.500 employees of the Trust treat 115.000 inpatients and 350.000 outpatients each year in 1.100 beds.

Further information about the University of Southampton, study at the medical faculty and the Southampton General Hospital can be found on the website of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Southampton.

The University of Southampton regularly organizes Open days for future students. In 2015 those days take place on the 3rd and 4th of July and also on the 4th and 5th of September. Further information and an application form can be found here.
