The Amilcar Cabral University, Guinea Bissau’s first University, offers degree courses in education, law, medicine, veterinary medicine, engineering, agronomy, economics, sociology, modern languages and journalism. On average, three years of training is required before a degree is awarded at the associate level. Law students study for five years, leading to a bachelor’s degree. Medical students need seven years, including an internship, to achieve a Medicina geral, which is equivalent to an MD. So far, all postgraduate studies must be undertaken abroad.
