Entry to the program requires a completed bachelor's degree with a biological focus. Applicants with a non-biological B.Sc. other than biology have to demonstrate at least 60 ECTS within the field of biology. This has to be verified by module descriptions (in German or English) with your application. You can apply for the course if you will be awarded your bachelor's degree this year. If the final bachelor's degree has not been awarded when you apply, you must submit a list of your graded completed modules with your application. For applicants from China and Vietnam, the APS certificate is an absolute requirement to apply to a German university.
Minimum entrance requirements:
