Biology, Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)
The bachelor's programme in biology at the University of Bayreuth provides a basic scientific education and a broad introduction to the biological sciences, including biotechnology/gene technology and ecology. The course is divided into four major parts: general scientific basics, biological basics, specialisation, and interdisciplinary skills.
Studying in Bayreuth was very diverse and gave me insights into a wide range of disciplines. In particular, I took away a lot from the internships. I would always prefer to study at a "smaller" university like Bayreuth because the supervision and organization of the studies is easier and better with fewer students. In the end, this is more helpful than a theoretically larger selection of options at large universities.
This degree programme is taught in German.
Good knowledge of German is an essential prerequisite to successfully completing the degree programme. Proof of German language proficiency at B2 level or equivalent is required for admission. For detailed information, please see the German version of the study programme site.
