The interdisciplinary Master's degree programme in Biochemistry and Molecular Biomedicine includes aspects of biology, chemistry and medicine. This programme emphasizes research-led teaching, in which intensive practical application plays a major role alongside theoretical knowledge.
From the 2nd semester and on, you will apply and deepen your theoretical knowledge in laboratory exercises. This prepares you to carry out biochemical and molecular biological experiments as well as biomedical analyses independently. In the 4th semester, you will write your master's thesis as part of a research project.
Due to the international nature of the research, numerous lectures are held in English. International guest lecturers are integrated into the teaching, and you as a student are encouraged to participate in mobility programmes (e.g. Erasmus+).
During the course of your studies, you will gain a solid foundation of knowledge in the fields of medical biochemistry and metabolic physiology, molecular biology, cell biology, structural biology, bioinformatics and biophysics.

The Master's degree programme in Biochemistry and Molecular Biomedicine is offered jointly by TU Graz and the University of Graz, taking place in an internationally recognized science and teaching environment. The two internationally visible research foci are:
While working on research projects, students learn how to use state-of-the-art research methods and equipment, including those for mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), molecular dynamics simulation, X-ray structural analysis, calorimetry and much more.
Graduates of the Nawi Graz Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Molecular Biology are admitted without needing to fulfil any further conditions. Other preliminary studies that are eligible for admission with and without conditions can be found in the curriculum (in German).
Graduates of other bachelor's degree programmes can obtain information and apply for admission by contacting studynoSpam@tugraz.at.
Whether they are needed to perform basic academic research or applied research in an industrial or scientific setting: graduates of this master's degree programme are in great demand.
You can choose from a wide range of exciting activities in the fields of biochemistry, medicine, molecular diagnostics and pharmacy. In your professional career, for example, you can work:
