Master's Degree Programme, 2 years

Molecular Medicine

– Programme components

The MSc is a two-year, full-time programme starting in the autumn semester (mid-August). There are two main components: a master's thesis worth 60 ECTS credits, and theoretical and methodological courses totalling a further 60 credits. Three courses, making up 30 credits, are compulsory. The remaining courses, adding up to 30 credits, are selected from lists of electives. Ideally, electives should be linked to the master's thesis.

Below you find the lists of compulsory and elective courses. Please note that there might be some minor changes in the lists of elective courses in the academic year 2017/2018.
