Courses fitting into the ERASMUS+ framework (actual availability on request)

Looking for courses please keep in mind that courses with designations MNF-bioc-1xx and MNF-bioc-3xx are given only during winter term and MNF-bioc-2xx courses are given in summer term only.

Furthermore MNF-bioc-1xx courses are designed for students in their first master semester (sometimes implicating already a sound basis of the subject taught). Whereas courses with MNF-bioc-2xx and MNF-bioc-3xx are designed for advanced masterstudents.

This and to prevent "sudden" cancellations of courses due to e.g. possible change of staff, research sabbatical, parental leave etc. resulting in missing credits during your placement, are the reasons why it is extremely important to contact the responsible persons at GEOMAR already when you plan your ERASMUS-stay in Kiel.
