Course description

In the Master's degree program, students delve into the molecular aspects of biosciences to better understand biological processes and master targeted chemical manipulation. They learn modern biotechnology and bioanalytics methods and their practical applications. Through compulsory elective lectures, practicals, and seminars in chemical biology, cell biology, and medicinal chemistry, students enhance their theoretical knowledge and practical skills in research-relevant topics. They can also take courses in chemistry or other natural or non-scientific subjects. Students choose a specialization, engaging in current research through a research internship, and demonstrate their ability to conduct independent research in their Master's thesis. This thesis, which takes six months to complete, marks the culmination of the program. Studying abroad for one or two semesters is a viable option, with comparable achievements gained abroad easily credited due to the program's flexibility.

Qualification Requirements

The Master’s degree program in Chemical Biology is based on the corresponding Bachelor’s degree program. Therefore, not only a comprehensive theoretical education from the Bachelor’s degree program is required, but also a comparable scope of laboratory courses, not only in the field of biochemistry/chemical biology, but also in chemistry. Thus, admission to the Master’s degree program is only possible if the Bachelor’s degree program is comparable to the Bachelor’s degree program in Chemistry/Chemical Biology at TU Dortmund University. An application for admission must be submitted to verify the equivalence. A grade of at least 3.2 is required for admission to the Master’s degree program.

Document Requirements

Your degree certificate: (Bachelor of Science/Engineering or Sarjana I, botherdis, Lisans, Diplôme d'Ingénieur d'Etat etc.) This includes notarized copies of the original and an official transcript to German or English language, furnished by an official translator , if the certificate originals are neither in English or German. The requested degree must be 2.0 or better in the German scale. Your mark sheets of all terms and other records of your academic education in undergraduate studies. These mark sheets must include the grades as well as the credit points collected. Each topic should be clearly identified. This includes notarized copies of the original and an official transcript in German or English language, furnished by an official translator, if the certificate originals are neither in English or German.
