Integrated Life Sciences | Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg - FAU

The international master program Integrated Life Sciences was jointly initiated by the Departments of Biology, Physics, and Mathematics at the Friedrich-Alexander University (FAU) of Erlangen-Nürnberg. With both theoretical and practical courses in modern techniques at the interface between Biology and the neighbouring life science disciplines the program accounts for the rapidly developing research in molecular biology, biophysics, systems biology or synthetic biology. All of these modern fields necessitate the integration of techniques and methods from different disciplines at different length- and timescales, e.g. the function of single biomolecules may be studied using X-ray diffraction and computer simulations, novel high-resolution microscopy methods are used to follow individual molecules in cells,  the wealth of data generated e.g. in modern genomics and metabolomics is processed developing modern computer codes.


Aims of the International Master program Integrated Life Sciences
 

  • provide a comprehensive education at the interface between biology and the neighbouring disciplines in natural sciences in the fields Mathematical Modeling and Systems Biology, Bioimaging and Biophysics, Biological Structures and Processes, both in lectures as well as in hands-on practical courses in participating research groups
  • train students in state-of-the-art computational and experimental methods close to current research

Integrated Life Sciences | Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg - FAU: Admission

Relevant Bachelor degree (or equivalent) with above-average success in Integrated Life Sciences, Physics, Mathematics, Biology. The MSc program is particularly aimed at graduates of interdisciplinary biophysical or biomathematical study courses and at graduates with a BSc in related disciplines such as Physics, Biology, or Mathematics with a strong interest in interdisciplinary biological questions. If there is no clear equality of the Bachelor of the applicant with the Bachelor of Integrated Life Sciences, or if the mark of the BSc is 2.6 or worse, the applicants have to pass the Admission test. You can repeat the test one time within a year. A second repetition is not possible.

Language requirement

  • The required English level is “Vantage or upper intermediate” level (B2) according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, or an equivalent score in an internationally recognised test, eg. IELTS 5.5, TOEFL pbt 552. Six years of English lessons at a German Gymnasium shall also suffice as proof; applicants whose native language is English need not submit any such proof.
  • Proof of German proficiency is not required. However, we strongly recommend to visit German courses during the MSc studies.

The information concerning the application documents and the address for applications you can find here.

Application deadline: 15th of July. For international applicants we strongly recommend to apply until 31st of May.
