Biochemistry (Master of Science)

Biochemistry (Master of Science)

The Master program (M.Sc.) Biochemistry offers a profound education in the field of biochemistry. Apart from its focus on cellular biochemistry, it also provides the students with in-depth knowledge in the fields of chemical biology, biophysics and physiology and includes extensive hands-on in practical courses or individual research projects.


Students are taught to perform state of the art research projects self-reliantly and are able to participate in at least three individual research projects on different scientific topics. Most of the students are integrated into research groups located in the LIMES institute in Bonn, but all students have the opportunity to perform parts of the education program (research projects) at other universities in or outside of Germany. Additionally, depending on the scientific projects and the research groups involved, selected students may also have the opportunity for short time exchange with research groups of selected partner universities. The chosen universities belong to the top universities in their respective nations and worldwide and our scientific partners in the collaborating departments are eminent scientists in their fields.

For this 2 year education program, up to 40 students per year will be admitted. Applicants should hold a B.Sc. degree in molecular biomedicine, chemistry, biology, biotechnology, molecular life sciences, pharmacy or related fields. The selection will be based on academic achievements.

Information for international applicants

The M.Sc. program in Biochemistry also offers training for international students. The Coordination Office of the LIMES institute will be closely connected with the already existing supportive infrastructure of the International Office of the University of Bonn. This includes close contact while preparing a move to Bonn as well as assistance and advice for managing day-to-day life in Bonn.
