Studies in Biology


At the university of Würzburg, the Study Programme Bachelor Biology covers many topics in in the biosciences. Students are able to get acquainted with individual fields and have the opportunity to focus on individual challenges. The various options in the choice of disciplines and the temporal flexibility make it possible to study abroad and do an internship already in the bachelor's programme without a loss of time. The international mobility of the students in the Biosciences in Würzburg has been very high.

The subsequent Master in Biosciences offers the possibility to intensify a selected special field scientifically.
