The University of Tübingen, home to Germany's oldest degree in biochemistry, introduces a new and broad Master of Biochemistry (MSc). The 2-year degree in English will provide you with knowledge of the very latest developments in biochemical, molecular and cellular biology as well as with cutting edge laboratory and bioinformatics skills.


What sets this program apart is its broad approach. It offers you an in-depth look at many aspects of molecular life science without early specialization, while allowing you to dig deeper in areas of your choice. Topics range from biochemical, structural, cellular and molecular biology to neuroscience, cell signalling, plant physiology as well as cancer biology.


The course is highly modular and adaptable to your personal preferences. Few elements of the degree are fixed and there is a wealth of options. You will be given the opportunity to work in several different labs to hone your skills and develop your preferences.


The master is organized by the Interfaculty Institute of Biochemistry (IFIB) which is a tight-knit community of a dozen research groups. Like the degree, the local labs cover a broad range of research topics from structural biochemistry to model organisms. On top of the in-house expertise, several excellent research institutions working in the fields of developmental biology, biocybernetics and neuroscience are located in the immediate vicinity.


We are looking for highly motivated bachelor students from all over the world to join us for a stimulating scientific experience. Admission will be granted based mainly on bachelor grades, supplemented by extracurricular merits and a written examination taking place in Tübingen.
