Degree Programs


Study at the faculty of chemistry and chemical biology

Since winter semester 03/04 we are offering bachelor degree programs in chemistry and chemical biology and since winter semester 04/05 also master degree programs. We were one of the first departments of chemistry in Germany which introduced bachelor and master courses in the process of introducing homogeneous study structures in Europe initiated by the Bologna-declaration.  All courses were examined by a commission of experts and accredited by a specialized agency in accordance with all relevant standards of the German Accreditation Council.

It ist possible to finish the bachelor studies in 6 semester and the subsequent master studies in 4 semester. The bachelor studies in chemistry and chemical biology can both only be started in the winter term. Students continuing their studies with transfer credits can get admission to start with the study at the department of chemistry in the summer term.

There is an admission restriction for the bachelor study in chemical biology. It was introduced due to the high number of students to avoid internal admission restrictions for lab courses during the study to enable the students to complete their studies quickly.

Students who finished school at foreign countries have to apply for the bachelor and master study at our international office (German: Referat Internationales). The application deadlines and the information about the application procedure for the study can be found here .

For the bachelor courses a preparatory course in physics and mathematics before the beginning of the winter term is offered. In that course the important contents in mathematics and physics for the study are repeated, practiced and deepened during two weeks prior to the lecture period.

Please note, that the language of our courses is German. Only a few courses of the master study are also held in English.
