New Alliance in the Fight Against Coronavirus and COVID-19

Researchers at Heidelberg University have formed an alliance – the fightCOVID @ Heidelberg research and development task force – with the aim to curb the coronavirus pandemic. To this end, scientists of the two Medical Faculties and the Heidelberg and Mannheim University Hospitals, the BioQuant centre, the Center for Molecular Biology and the Central Institute of Mental Health in Mannheim have joined forces with colleagues from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg.

MSc Molecular Biosciences - Application

Procedure

We welcome applications from students who have, or expect to have, completed a relevant Bachelors degree with an above-average* grade by the end of the academic year preceding the desired semester of entry.

*Guidelines: German system: at least 2.4; British system, 2.1 or above. Degree subjects should generally be focussed on some aspect of biological sciences, but students with other relevant degrees, for example in chemistry or physics, may be considered for some Majors (see their web links for more information).

Application: gateway to the application (usually opens around the first of February)

You can follow the process, see below.

The deadline will  15th of March 2020

Programme Start: 1 October, 2020

When you apply you will be expected to name your preferred Major, and to give a second choice. The numbers of places available in each Major are limited.
