Basic Preconditions

Qualification requirement

Relevant Bachelor’s degree with a grade average of 2.5 or better (or equivalent international grade) in Biology, Biochemistry, Life Sciences or a similar Bachelor degree.

Language requirement

The required English level is “Vantage or upper intermediate” level (B2) according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, or an equivalent score in an internationally recognised test, eg. IELTS 5.5 or TOEFL.

Six years of English lessons at a German Gymnasium shall also suffice as proof; applicants whose native language is English do not need to submit any such proof. Proof of German proficiency is not required. However, we strongly recommend non-German speaking students to attend German language classes during the MSc studies.
