General questions regarding studies in Oldenburg:


Master Program Neuroscience


Corona Situation

  • Experimental Master's theses are allowed again since May 20 in labs which provided a hygene concept. Students and scientists are required to sign that they are aware of the current rules, including wearing masks and going on the right side when moving through the building. Only one person per 20 m2 is allowed in laboratories.
  • Lab courses, and classroom teaching will be allowed again from July on if they provide a hygene concept (including similar space as for research in labs).
  • Winter semester: University of Oldenburg decided to have a "hybrid semester" with theoretical courses being held mainly online (exept for first semester courses) and practical courses being allowed with a hygene concept.

General admission deadlines

  • 31st May for first semester (winter term)
  • 15th July for higher semesters (winter term)
  • 15th January for higher semesters (summer term)

Admission will be given to 25 students according to our current admission criteria.

For international students it is highly recommended to apply as early as possible via uni-assist to allow for some additional processing time of their documents and send a copy of their documents (in one PDF file) directly to the program directors (), as the assessment for equivalence of degrees may take extra time.

Four out of many distinctive characteristics of our Master Program Neuroscience:

  • International: All courses in English, semester abroad is possible
  •  Focus: Sensory Systems
  • Science-oriented: Individual student projects in research groups
  • Interdisciplinary: Teachers & students with mixed backgrounds, joint courses with Biology & Psychology
