From the basics of medical science to lab experiments for the Master’s thesis, individual scientific training takes priority. Experimental work in state-of-the-art research labs is essential; practicals in research labs, tutorials, excursions, lectures and seminars complement the curriculum. The ultimate goal is to train you in thinking out of the box and to provide knowledge that helps cover ground in research more quickly.
Medical Life Sciences has been organised to equip you for a career in biomedicine. It includes Bioinformatics, English Scientific Writing or Systems Biology as well as the focus areas INFLAMMATION, EVOLUTIONARY MEDICINE and ONCOLOGY you can choose from to follow your interests
Electives provide yet more scope for delving into topics you are particularly interested in, whether it's regenerative medicine, molecular paleopathology or medical imaging, to name but a few.

Your fellow students come from all over the world. MedLife is highly international, currently students from 15 nations are busy with their Master studies in Medical Life Sciences.
The MedLife lecturers are renowned lab leaders, clinicians and researchers that train you in molecular disease research from various angles.
We do not have a cut-off GPA since we recruit from all over the world and from a variety or Bachelor programmes. But we mean what we say: You need a solid foundation in molecular biology, cell biology level and biochemistry, C1 English proficiency and lab experience in molecular biology as well as proven vertebrate/human physiology knowledge.
We are not aware of any English requirements for this programme.
We have a two-stage ability assessment in place. You need:
Thorough foundation in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology through a BSc degree in a life science discipline (e.g. biology, biochemistry, molecular medicine)
first-hand lab experience conducting experiments in molecular biology
English language proficiency at least on level C1 according to CEFR
vertebrate/human physiology knowledge acquired during your Bachelor studies via an entire course, add course description to your application to prove them
