International Graduate Program Medical Neurosciences
For our MSc program we are looking for students interested in cell and molecular biology research with a strong clinical connection in the field of Neuroscience. Your basic knowledge in biology, chemistry and physics is solid and your grades are above average (i.e. a degree in medicine, Psychology or natural sciences (BSc, MBBS, Medical Doctor, Diplom or international equivalent).
Ideally, you can already demonstrate laboratory experience. You see your future in neuroscience research wanting to turn your findings from the bench into treatment at the bedside. For a successful application we recommend to gain as much practical experience as possible before the master program starts in October. This includes experimental Bachelor theses or internships in a lab.
In addition to a strong command of the English language (please see required scores at column on the right) all our students need to exhibit a good amount of inquisitiveness, initiative and independent thinking.
