The University of Kiel bears the name of its founder, Duke Christian Albrecht of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf, who established the university for his Duchy in the year 1665 – only seventeen years after the end of the Thirty Years' War.
As a state institution, Kiel University has a special responsibility: It offers students from Schleswig-Holstein a broad range of subjects so they can study in state. Kiel University also offers a clearly structured scientific profile that attracts students from all over Germany and the world. Contributing to this are the bachelor and master programs, which are available in almost all disciplines. They are designed to make it easier for international students to get their degrees accepted.
The main focus of the research group „Genetics & Bioinformatics“ is on the identification and basic molecular characterization of genetic susceptibility loci. We employ genome-wide association studies (GWAS) as the main tool to identify genetic susceptibility loci in complex inflammatory diseases. Sample preparation, data generation and analysis all take place in-house, which implies that we are also developing protocols and management systems for these tasks.

You can chose between private and statutory (public) health insurance carriers and companies in Germany. Up until you turn 30 years of age (or up to the 14th full study semester) you must essentially be insured by a statutory health insurance carrier. Only in exceptions will you be allowed to take out private insurance. Please check this with the International Center. But before you transfer to a private insurance company, please also remember that you can then no longer move back to a statutory health insurance fund while you are studying.
