  2. Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree within the field of science or technical science based on grades and courses taken (Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science) relevant to bioinformatics. If different grading systems make comparison impossible, applicants will be prioritised on the basis of an individual evaluation by the Admission Committee.

If the number of qualified applicants within a category exceeds the number of places available, applicants will be prioritised according to the following criteria (all criteria apply):

  • Number of ECTS credits taken in courses relevant for bioinformatics.
