In 2004 the University of Bonn - supported by the CEMBIO - launched an International Masters Course in Molecular Biotechnology. This ECTS credited course, taught fully in English, is aimed at graduate students (from such fields as biology, nutrition, agriculture, chemistry, food chemistry, pharmacy, medicine and dentistry) with a strong background in cell biology, microbiology, molecular biology and biochemistry. The program has been accredited by the German Federal Council for Accreditation.
Foundations are provided by lectures addressing
In addition, seminars are offered on bioethics and current topics in biotechnology.
A major focus of the program is the development of practical laboratory skills through a combination of compulsory and optional practicals.

Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
The University of Bonn is one of the world's leading research based Universities and therefore it is no surprise that we operate on an international level. We particularly specialize in the fields of research and teaching and this has led to our evolving into the position of a truly prominent international institution.
