Aim of the programme

The aim of this Master programme is to
  • provide a comprehensive education and hands-on research in modern Biophysics,
  • prepare students for the interdisciplinary nature of modern-day Life Sciences,
  • train the students in quantitative thinking and in state-of-the-art experimental techniques close to current research.

Students enrolled in the Biophysics Master will have the opportunity to perform most of the exciting experiments available at the Biophysics Institute.

Students enrolling in the two-year Master programme may choose in addition to core lectures in Biophysics, specialisation courses from the vast offer of Life Sciences departments, such as in Chemistry and Biochemistry and Biology. Our programme offers a highly flexible choice of subjects and the course syllabus is intimately connected to the ongoing research within the Life Sciences at our university. 

During the second year, students have the opportunity to carry out research at the academic level by completing a research project and a research intership. The best students will have the possibility to work as lab assistant within the Biophysics Institute during their master.

New study plan will be available soon.
