Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    Research-oriented focus; Large practical component; Range of learning modules and teaching films for the self-study programme, particularly in basic training; High number of work placements with one-on-one supervision; Independent work in individual research projects.
  • Other special features
    Above all, Biology in Göttingen is characterised by a broad spectrum from which students can choose. Key areas in addition to a broad spectrum of molecular biology are biodiversity and nature conservation, behavioural and neurobiology, as well as anthropology. Thanks to major non-university institutions in these areas (DPZ, ENI, MPIs) on the Göttingen campus, students find a highly research-oriented environment in which they gain early insights and become involved during their studies.
