The master's program "Cardiovascular Science" is a consecutive, full-time study program 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 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 experiences and insights into different research questions. After finishing their Master's thesis, the graduates will be highly qualified for their future careers in the field of cardiovascular sciences in academia and industry, but also in familiar occupational fields.
Applicants must have a bachelor's degree or equivalent in biology, biochemistry, molecular medicine, or a related subject.
Applicants with a degree in human medicine (state examination, MBBS, MD, etc.) please note: The "Cardiovascular Science" course is a natural science master’s course and cannot be compared with specialist training or something similar!
Applicants who are not native English speakers must demonstrate adequate English language skills through acceptable results in an internationally recognized test (e.g. TOEFL, IELTS, APIEL, CPE). Applicants who have the majority of their courses (college or university) taught in English are not required to submit results from a standardized test. However, it is recommended to include an official statement (signed by a college or university official such as the dean or registry office) stating that English was the medium of instruction
