Master's programme in biomedicine

logoWe train students for careers in biomedical research:  Welcome to Medical Life Sciences!

We all have been experiencing an unpredictable time with the pandemic of Covid-19 disrupting everyday lives severely for nearly two years. Nevertheless we have been teaching students from all over the world. The summer semester 2020 went as scheduled, although in an unusual format, relying on video conferencing tools, audio-commented lecture slides, web presentations by students. The winter semester 2020 as well as the summer semester 2021 used the same digital formats and went smoothly. Although not a way of teaching we would prefer in normal times, students and lecturers alike have shown: studying can go on, even if you are not in class.

We have all been glad to return to complete in-class teaching this summer semester. Students from 14 nations are currently studying Medical Life Sciences. Lab practicals have gone ahead. Masks are worn, distances kept, that is second nature by now for everyone. So we are back to almost-normal.

On the following pages you can find out why studying Medical Life Sciences is worth your while.

Covid-19 ist still there, though, and SARS-CoV-2 needs to be kept in check, worldwide. To avoid the virus from mutating further getting vaccinated is the best way forward. Society as a whole will only be safe if everybody joins in the vaccination effort to contain the virus.  And we defintely want to be able to go on teaching you in class!
