Applicants are required to hold a top Bachelor's degree in the life sciences (e.g. BSc in biology, microbiology, biomedicine, molecular biology) or a state examination/Master's degree in a medical subject. The course is thereby ideally suited for graduates of biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, molecular biology, biomedicine, molecular medicine, human medicine, veterinary medicine, dental medicine and equivalent specialised programmes such as tissue engineering.
As a precondition to enter the Master's programme the candidate has to provide knowledge of cell biology worth a minimum of 5 credit points in lectures and 12 credit points in practical exercises, as well as molecular-genetic knowledge worth a minimum of 5 credit points in lectures and 12 credit points in practical exercises.
Proof of good basic mathematical skills is required, as is proof of English language skills (see language requirements).
Applicants need to provide proof of their proficiency in English, for example your successful completion of one of the standard tests (TOEFL 550 [written], 215 [computer based], 79 [internet based] or IELTS 6.0).
Other qualifications, for example a study programme completed in English before, will be reviewed by a committee.
