Courses are held in English. Only optional exams are taken in German.
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. Proof of good basic mathematical skills is required, as is proof of English language skills (see language requirements).
