  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Biosciences are extremely practically oriented in Braunschweig. Far more than 50% of teaching consists of experimental work in various practicals. The individual optional required modules in the BA/MA and the MA specialisation modules are compiled by the students themselves depending on the subjects of interest. In addition to the traditional fields of Biology, it is also possible to specialise in Biology, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, System Biology and Mechanical Engineering. Especially important is the integration of assistant professors from non-university institutions (e.g. HZI, RKI, TI, JKI) in teaching.
  • Other special features
    The Department of Biosciences in Braunschweig cultivates a particularly cooperative and close relationship between students and teaching staff. Students are viewed as equal partners and, in most cases, known by name to their colleagues throughout the entire degree programme. The assistant professors maintain an open-door policy. Deans and coordinators have direct and continuous contact with the department and student representatives. Problems are therefore identified at an early stage and eliminated in a timely fashion. Students like to identify with their university.
