coordinated by the International Training Centre

Most academic programmes at the FBE are organized according to the European 3-5-8 system with 3 year Bachelor programmes, 1 and 2 year Master programmes and a PhD in Applied Biological sciences (possibly combined with a PhD training programme in one of the Doctoral Schools). The offer of the study programmes is as diverse as is the central topic of our research and education: the living matter.
