Biophysics at the Ulm University provides a comprehensive education and hands-on research in modern Biophysics and prepare students for the interdisciplinary nature of modern-day Life Sciences.



Students enrolling in the two-year Biophysics Master program at Ulm University 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, Molecular Medicine 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.
