Master’s eligibility requirements: Bachelor’s degree
To be eligible for the master’s program, you need to have successfully completed a bachelor's degree with a total of at least 180 ECTS credits (1 ECTS credit corresponds to 30 working hours) in biology or a related subject, e.g. bioinformatics, (bio)chemistry, (bio)physics, or biotechnology.
If you have not yet finished your bachelor´s degree, you are still eligible to apply for the master´s program when you submit a recent transcript of records showing an overview of finished courses.
Please note that the transcript of records of your bachelor’s program (in progress) must indicate a total grade point average.
If the following is not already mentioned in your transcript, you should also add:
- An official explanation of the grading system of your university, that shows the best possible grade and minimum passing grade in this system, and
- An official explanation of the crediting system of your university (i.e. to how many working hours does 1 credit correspond).
Please note that if the grading or crediting system of your university differs from the German system, we will convert your grade point average and number of credits (you do NOT have to do this yourself).
