Detailed Information Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology (BSc)
The courses and lectures are predominantly taught in English. Free German courses will be offered to facilitate comprehension for foreigners in the few German-speaking courses!
The 5th (and the 6th) semester may be spent abroad at one of our partner universities. A stay for one year can result in bachelor degrees of both universities! - Please note: The stay abroad is subject to the condition that there are no legal restrictions on immigration or residence and that the partner universities offer sufficient vacancies.
The Bachelor degree enables the entrance either into a job or into a master programme, for example our Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences. The additional degree Bachelor of Honours (given by our partner universities in Scotland) enables you to directly start a PhD programme.
