Studieren in Würzburg (Incoming)


We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Würzburg. We offer several programmes for each step of your higher education.

Exchange Programmes

In our Master Programmes we offer various lectures in English, especially in Biochemistry and Chemistry. If you are planning an exchange semester at our faculty, feel free to contact the International Officer  of your subject. He or she can answer your questions regarding language requirements and specifc lectures.

In our Bachelor Programmes as well as in Pharmacy, Food Chemistry, and Teaching Programmes, we can only welcome German speaking exchange students.

Interested exchange students should check with the International Office at their home university, as the process usually starts with the nomination by your home institution.


Bachelor and Master Study Programmes

While a variety of courses on our Faculty are offered in English, our Master in Biochemistry is our only degree programme taught entirely in English. For all other degree programs, you will need to have German language skills at either either a B1 or B2 level, depending on the subject, in order to earn your Bachelor or Masters Degree from our Faculty. 

International students looking to earn their degree at the University of Würzburg can start the application process with our International Office.

PhD Students

Doing your PhD in Germany? Or interested in a guest residence for research? In either case, contact the professor of your research area, as finding a supervisor is your first step. You will need to have confirmed your topic with your future supervisor in order to officially enrol.

Detailed information about doctoral programs for foreign applicants is presented on the International Offices' homepage.

Interested students can also decide to pursue their PhD through the University of Würzburg Graduate School. More information on the Graduate Schools in which our faculty participates (Science and Technology & Life Sciences) can be found on their website.


The Faculty for Chemistry and Pharmacy periodically offers Virtual Chemistry Courses (VCC@JMU). These individual courses are entirely online and open to international students, who can participate from the comfort of their own home. The seminars are offered as a block (usually during the summer break period in Germany) and are not spread out over the course of a full semester.
