Special features regarding teachingResearch-oriented orientation; high practical component; offer of learning modules and teaching films for self-study, especially in basic training; high proportion of practical training with one-to-one supervision; independent work by students in individual research projects.
Special features regarding the international orientationInternationalisation officer, who is responsible for networking with international institutions/universities and a wide range of exchange programmes; 6 English-language Master's degree courses; support for several exchange programmes through coordinators (Erasmus+, Erasmus SMP, Promos, Tuition Waiver); promotion of intercultural competence through semesters abroad and language training (English C1 already in the Bachelor's degree).
Special features regarding research activitiesNumerous Max Planck Institutes, the European Neurosciences Centre, the German Primate Centre and the University Hospital are located on the Göttingen Campus. This means that students of the biosciences have access to a broad spectrum of bio-medical research here, in which they can actively participate both within the framework of their studies (internships, theses) and outside (self-organised internships, work as a research assistant).
Other special featuresBiology in Göttingen is characterised above all by the broad spectrum from which students can choose. The focus is on molecular biology, biodiversity and conservation, behavioural and neurobiology, and anthropology. Due to the location of important non-university institutions in these fields at the Göttingen Campus (European Neuroscience Centre, German Primate Centre, various MPIs), students will find an environment very close to research, in which they will gain insights and be integrated at an early stage during their degree.
