Master’s eligibility requirements: Bachelor’s degree
To be eligible for the master’s program, you need to have successfully completed a bachelor's degree with a total of at least 180 ECTS credits (1 ECTS credit corresponds to 30 working hours) in biology or a related subject, e.g. bioinformatics, chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, and agricultural biology.
If you have not yet finished your bachelor´s degree, you are still egilible to apply for the master´s program when you submit a recent transcript of records showing an overview of finished courses.
Please note that the transcript of records of your bachelor’s program (in progress) must indicate a total grade point average.
If the following is not already mentioned in your transcript, you should also add:
- An official explanation of the grading system of your university, that shows the best possible grade and minimum passing grade in this system, and
- An official explanation of the crediting system of your university (i.e. to how many working hours does 1 credit correspond).
Please note that if the grading or crediting system of your university differs from the German/ECTS system, we will convert your grade point average and number or credits (you do NOT have to do this yourself).
