Bachelor Program

Main content

The first year of the Bachelor program is supported by the IBC through frontal lectures given by the Professors and through associated practical laboratory-based courses. We redirect you to individual webpages for more information on "Grundlagen der Biologie IA " lectures and "Grundlagen der Biologie I (Praktikum) " practical courses.

The second year of the Bachelor program continues with both frontal lectures and practical courses. The IBC faculty participate in the "Grundlagen der Biologie IIA " lectures.

The third year of the Bachelor program is composed of a combination of Concept-Courses and Block-Courses. The goal of the Concept-Courses is to teach the fundamental principles and concepts underlying an entire field in Biology. The Block-Courses aim is to communicate scientific research as a process using a combination of lectures, experimental work in the lab, discussion of literature, scientific presentations and other activities. A clearly defined biological problem will be analyzed in detail during a 12 day course.

If you have any questions concerning the format or content of a particular course, please contact either the coordinator listed below for each course, or the IBC lecturers .
