Modulelist

To see the module descriptions click on the module number.

The list below shows all modules of the examination regulations (some information may be outdated).

Here you can find the current examination regulations.

As there are sometimes changes of staff, reserach semesters etc., the actual list is somewhat smaller.

Before you try to attend defined modules ask the person in charge of the module for further details (will the module be given, when, where etc.).

 

Modules of the current semester are also announced on UnivIS and here.

*: this is just an example to gain 30 ECTS per semester as average workload.You can choose optional modules whenever they are given. MNF-bioc-2xx modules are given in summer semester and MNF-bioc-3xx are given in winter semester usually. To finish your curriculum, you need 97 ECTS out of compulsory modules, 24 ECTS out of compulsory/elective modules and 9 ECTS out of optional modules. If you successfully completed more modules, only the best out of each section will be used calculating your final mark.
