Application and Approval

The Master's degree requires a degree in a bachelor's degree, with 80 ECTS credits from the fields of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. Furthermore, 10 ECTS points are required in theoretical and practical fields of biofabrication (e.g. polymer science, rheology, materials science, mathematics, computer science, mechatronics, biochemistry or (molecular) cell biology). Participation in an interview process is compulsory. The provisional admission to the Master's degree can be granted if at least 150 ECTS credits are awarded in a corresponding bachelor's program.

If you have any questions about the required requirements, please send them to master.biofabrikation@uni-wuerzburg.de.

For candidates with a degree from a non-German-speaking institution, proof of sufficient knowledge of German is required.

Please send your application documents including a letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, certificates and proof of academic achievements to master.biofabrikation@uni-wuerzburg.de.
