01 Requirements

Who is eligible to apply?

You are eligible to apply for the elite Master's Program “Human Biology – Principles of Health and Disease” if you fulfil all of the following requirements:

  • A bachelor's degree with at least 180 ECTS credits or equivalent in biology, human biology or a related subject (e.g. Biomedical Science, Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Medicine, Physics, Biophysics).
  • Your bachelor's curriculum should include a final research project (bachelor thesis) with a written thesis credited with at least 10 ECTS-credits. If your bachelor's program does not require a thesis, you are still eligible to apply if you have completed or will complete an equivalent course or internship. A course or an internship will be considered as equivalent, if it concerns a long-term research project (of at least 8 weeks) combined with a written report according to good scientific writing standards. You will have to upload an official document, including project details and signed by your supervisor, to show proof of having done an equivalent course or internship.
  • A transcript of records from your bachelor's degree, indicating your grade point average. If you are currently a bachelor student, you should submit a transcript of records with an ECTS credits level of at least 120 ECTS credits and a preliminary grade point average.
  • Proficiency in English: equal to a C1 level, as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), or proof of equivalent proficiency in English. Please note that it must be clear to the selection committee that your knowledge of English equals at least a C1 level, as defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). This means that the proof must either explicitly state that your English proficiency equals a C1 level, or the proof of your C1 proficiency in English is at least verifiable (such as for internationally recognized language tests). Examples of valid or non-valid language proofs are listed in the following table.
