Basic subjects are taught in the first year of the programme, which consists of courses in chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, and basic courses in biology (histology, anatomy, cell biology, physiology and microbiology). From the second year onwards, courses focus on molecular genetics, biochemistry, medical microbiology and immunology. The elective courses offer insights into special fields of biology and biomedicine. The Bachelor's thesis involves a three-month training period in a research group or company and gives students the opportunity to apply acquired knowledge in research and development. Students can spend their fifth and/or sixth semester at one of our partner universities abroad. Several double degree programmes are offered.
Oral and written examinations, lab reports, presentations
A study abroad period in the final year is strongly recommended. Partner universities in the UK (University of Dundee, University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University Aberdeen), Norway (Sor Trondelag University College), Italy (University of Palermo), Spain (University of Valencia), the Netherlands (HAN University of Applied Sciences), Poland (University of Krakow), Italy (University of Palermo) and France (UPEC Paris) accept students of the Applied Biology programme for either one or two semesters. Double degree programmes are in operation with all international partner universities in the UK as well as with the Dutch partner university.
