Life Sciences

The biological sciences are among the leading sciences of the 21st century.

At Ulm University, students in Biology, Biochemistry as well as Pharmaceutical and Industrial Biotechnology are trained in a practical and research-oriented manner in accordance with the guiding principle of teaching. Our teaching content and qualification goals build on a solid scientific basis.

The topics of our research focus "Stress response and resilience of biological systems" finds it's way into advanced modules of our teaching program. In this way, graduates of the above-mentioned courses are prepared for the global challenges, for example in connection with the consequences of climate change or in the health sector.

Study Committees

According to §26 Abs. 4 Landeshochschulgesetz Baden-Württemberg it says as follows:

The tasks of the Study Commission include, in particular, developing recommendations for the further development of subjects and forms of study [...], as well as for the use of funds earmarked for study and teaching, and organizing the evaluation of teaching [...] with the inclusion of student criticism of events.

The active development of study and examination regulations, teaching formats and working methods, as well as reflection and discussion in the department is the task of the members of the Study Committee. Student representatives on the Study Committee represent the interests of the students and also have the opportunity to come into contact with lecturers, deans and academic staff.
