The following requirements must also be fulfilled:

    2. At least 60 CP have to be reached from previous studies in: Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Physics, Cell Biology, Maths, Microbiology.

    3. Knowledge of English level C1 of the Common European Authoritative Framework of Reference for Languages evidenced by recognised language certificate. Students whose native language is not English must demonstrate their knowledge of English with a TOEFL score of 90 (iBT) or IELTS, Band 6.5 or better. If the last academic degree was obtained at a school, where the primary language of instruction was English, language skills are accepted as sufficient.

    4. The pass of a written suitability test under supervision to the subject area of a basic lecture in Biochemistry and in Molecular Cell Biology. If possible, the written test will be given in your country.

    5. A letter of motivation why you are choosing this program and what your research interests regarding to this department are.

    6. Two letters of recommendation not older than 2 years from faculty members who can attest the quality of the candidate.
