Study and TeachingQuality management in Study and Teaching

Good teaching is important to us and close to our hearts. The Faculty of Biosciences is aware of its responsibility for the development and assurance of quality in studying and teaching. In cooperation with the heiQUALITY Center of Heidelberg University, the Faculty implements the quality management system heiQUALITY.


All our degree programmes are accredited. The Bachelor of Biosciences passed the procedure positively as one of the first at the university within the framework of heiQuality.

The current results of the teaching evaluations of our faculty can be read in the respective current aggregated quality report.

Quality management at faculty level

The Deans of Studies

The tasks of the deans of studies include the central concerns of studying and teaching within the faculty.  At least one of the deans of studies is involved in every appointment procedure of the faculty as a voting member, in particular to ensure that the teaching competence of the applicants is taken into account in the decision-making process. A study coordinator is available to support the deans of studies.
