The Batterjee Medical Colleges and the Goethe-Institut signed a cooperation agreement in April 2021 to jointly offer German language courses and German language exams in the western and Asir region as well as, in the future, in the eastern region. The Batterjee Medical Colleges thus become the first educational institution in the Kingdom of Saudi-Arabia to be chosen as a partner for teaching the German language and as a regional center for German language exams. The agreement includes offering and designing language courses for medical German aimed for students and workers in the fields of medicine and dentistry.
The Batterjee Medical College for Science and Technology was founded in 2005.
The campus is located in North Obhour, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and was built to accommodate up to 5,000 students. The BMC is considered one of the first private specialized medical colleges offering a variety of majors in Saudi Arabia and one of the newest and largest private medical colleges in the Middle East.
