The University of Göttingen is a public research university in the city of Göttingen, Germany. Founded in 1734 by George II, King of Great Britain and Elector of Hanover, and starting classes in 1737, the university is the oldest in the state of Lower Saxony and the largest in student enrollment.
The Master’s program “Cardiovascular Science” is a consecutive full-time study program taught in English, which has the intention to train international students in all aspects of cardiovascular science. This will be achieved by its modular structure which offers students with a background in natural sciences or human medicine a broad education, not only in the relevant basics but also in modern clinical aspects which are essential for understanding translational research questions. A key feature of this program lies in its high proportion of individual practical training, allowing students to gain experimental experience and insight into different research questions. After finishing their Master’s thesis, the graduates will be highly qualified for a PhD and their future careers in the field of cardiovascular sciences in academia and industry, but also in related occupational fields.
During the Master’s program, all students carry out three lab rotations of eight weeks each in the research labs of the program or in research labs of collaborating universities in Germany, the Netherlands, and the UK.
There are NO tuition fees for the program.
Applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree, or equivalent degree in molecular medicine, biology, biochemistry or related fields.
