Ideal preparation for a career in science and academia
The Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience
The Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience provides research oriented career tracks leading to a master and/or a doctoral degree in neuroscience which provide an ideal preparation for a career in science and academia.
The master students have to choose different major subjects in the field of neuroscience. Their main focus can be in neural and behavioural sciences, cellular and molecular neurosciences or in the field of computational neuroscience. The Graduate Training Centre of Neuroscience provides a markedly broad spectrum of neuroscience research and training opportunities in Tübingen. Teaching is entirely in English.
To be eligible for the master programs, an above-average bachelor's degree from an internationally recognised university is required. The graduate programs are open for students with an undergraduate education in various disciplines.
Application / Recruitment
A detailed application guide and the respective application forms are available on our website. Application deadline is January 15 for the following winter term.
The recruitment procedure for the master course is three-stepped:

Final decisions are disclosed by the program's admission committee by the end of March.
The Graduate School´s master programs last four semesters. The first two semesters are dedicated to basic course work and the third semester to laboratory rotations of two times 10 weeks each. During the fourth semester, students perform experimental lab work for their master thesis. In addition to lectures, seminars and tutorials, we offer courses that introduce students to ongoing research in Tübingen, such as laboratory visits, journal clubs with faculty members, and laboratory rotations. This supports student to find a suitable laboratory and a project for their masters and, eventually, doctoral thesis.
