Elective modules - extension topics

Extension Topics

You can choose from 19 different extension topics.

If you choose option 1 for your compulsory elective modules you have to select one extension topic in addition to your chosen main topic and the mandatory modules.

If you choose option 2 for your compulsory elective modules you have to select three extension topics in addition to the mandatory modules.

All extension topics are composed the same way (exceptions Neurobiology and Informatics see below):

  • Practical course module (9 ECTS Points)
    All-day course lasting four weeks; at the end of the course you will prepare a final written report; some extension topics have practical block courses (Molecular and Cellular genetics, Structural Biology, Immunology and others); schedules and registration regulations for these block courses will be announced at the LSF
  • Lecture module (6 ECTS Points)
    6 ECTS points have to be acquired; usually you have to attend two lectures with 2 SWS, 3 ECTS points each; which lecture is held during the current semester you can find at the LSF Uni-München here: https://lsf.verwaltung.uni-muenchen.de
    module exam will cover both lectures (exception for Structural Biology and Molecular System Biology) and will be either a written (extension topics from Biochemistry and Biology) or an oral exam (extension topics from Chemistry);
