University - The Particular

Hannover Medical School (MHH), founded in 1965, is the only exclusively medical university in Germany. Its integration model, featuring patient care, research and teaching under one umbrella, has enabled MHH to occupy a leading place in the top-ranking group of German university clinics and to develop into a leading health campus. In MHH's model degree programme in the subject of Human Medicine – HannibaL – which it has offered for almost twenty years, teaching is highly practice-oriented from the very beginning.

Study Programme - Main Focus

MHH also attaches great importance to delivering high-quality teaching. More than 3,800 young people study at Hannover Medical School (MHH). Courses on offer range from the major degree programmes in Human Medicine and Dentistry, Bachelor and Master's programmes in life science and health science subjects, as well as specialised PhD programmes and post-graduate programmes, organised at MHH’s own graduate school, Hannover Biomedical Research School (HBRS).

Background - The Insight

MHH has already been awarded the "Family-Friendly University Audit" certificate six times. There are three day-care centres on campus, offering all-day childcare facilities for a total of 404 children. These facilities, including a crèche, nursery school and after-school care centre, are designed for children of staff and students. In addition, child care is offered during the Easter holidays, summer holidays and autumn holidays, as well as emergency childcare services, open to all MHH members 365 days a year.

What's special here?

Many MHH students are highly committed, and become involved in a variety of student initiatives on campus. A few years ago, they won a 'Studentenwerkspreis' award for transforming an unsightly cafeteria into a modern café. The Campus Life student association organises film evenings, debates and parties there, in MHH's Wohnzimmer (living room).
