You need to prove a minimum amount of 120 credits (ECTS) completed by the time of your application. Please list these in the respective categories.

The required modules / subject competencies from your qualifying study can be found here:

Subject competencies ECTS
Mathematics, Statistics and Data Science 10
Chemistry 5
Natural science with a bioscientific focus including a minimum number of 5 credits for: 45
    (1) Fundamentals of Bioscience (e. g. cell biology, genetics, microbiology, physiology) 15
    (2) Methods of Bioscience (e. g. laboratory course, methods of biotechnology, bioinformatics) 15
    (3) Applied plant and animal sciences 15
<b>Total ECTS</b> <b>60</b>

You can receive a maximum of 30 points for the Curricular Analysis if you can prove 60 ECTS of the required subject competencies. In the subject areas of natural science with a bioscientific focus, modules of at least 5 ECTS each must be demonstrated, otherwise 0 points will be awarded in the respective area.

If you are missing more than 30 ECTS of the subject competencies, you do not fulfill the subject qualification for the Master's program.

If you are not sure whether a module you have taken corresponds to the listed module contents, you can read our module descriptions. If you have taken a combined module in your degree program, such as a module Cell Biology with 5 Credits (consisting of a theory part and a laboratory course), you can enter the module in both categories, fundamentals of Bioscience and methods of Biosciences, but you have to divide the credits according to the categories (for example 3 Credits to 2 Credits).

All other modules of your transcript of records that cannot be divided into the listed categories you have to enter under the category other modules.

Please insert the credits (credit hours or units) of your origin university and your original grades for each module. If you do not have any grade information for some modules, just leave the field empty.
