Educational organisationThe Master's course lasts four semesters. The first two semesters are devoted to theoretical and practical training (lectures, seminars, tutorials, journal clubs) with an examination period at the end. The third and fourth semesters are set aside for two ten-week lab rotations and the six-month Master's thesis.
Ideally, the Master's thesis will lead directly to PhD studies.
