M.Sc. "Animal Biology and Biomedical Sciences"

International Master-Program

The University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover Foundation (Tierärztliche Hochschule Hannover, TiHo) offers a research-oriented Master of Science Program (MSc) in “Animal Biology and Biomedical Sciences” for German and foreign students.


It aims at students with a BSc degree in Biology, Biochemistry, Biomedicine or related subjects (not veterinary medicine!). 


The program about four semesters (two years) is grouped into three specialist areas focusing on

  • Evolution, Biodiversity and Behaviour;
  • Cellular, developmental and systems neurobiology;
  • Infection Biology.

This main topics present an interesting combination of biology and biomedical sciences and research. Many institutes of our university are involved in this study program, which are in this combination unique for biological faculties.


The lectureres refer their lessons to their own current topics of research. So the students very early take part at hands-on experiences. Who want to work in in biological research or add a doctorate degree or PhD is right here!


Our program is international, so the teaching language is mostly English, but in some cases you need German. Good knowledge of both languages are important!


Semester fees:

For every semester (term) you have to pay  about 390,- Euro for administration and ticket for public transport.
