The English language taught Master’s program at Ulm University is one such course that I always wanted to study. The university provides a high-quality education that is combined with in-depth knowledge in both major and minor courses. I applied to the university with the help of an online application form.
In the master course of Biology, I am aiming to receive a solid education in one area of biology in combination with an in-depth education in one medical and one further minor subject which is not biology. After completion of the first semester, I was given some special subject from "Molecular Biosciences", "Neurobiology" and "Biodiversity" to study. Moreover, it was totally on me to choose from topics like computer science, economics, mathematics, chemistry, philosophy.
