General questions regarding studies in Oldenburg:


Master Program Neuroscience

Applicaton deadline for first semester in winter term: 31.05.2020

Unfortunately, it is despite the current situation legally NOT possible to extend the application deadline. But due to the current situation, language certificates can be submitted later. In case you will be able to finish your B.Sc. studies until October, but could not complete 150 ECTS yet due to the Corona situation, please apply anyway and contact us by email: master-neu1jl0roscienceart@uolp1p4i.demkf. We will try (but cannot promise) to convince the university administration to allow a later submission of updated transcripts of records.

We accept applications of international students until 31.05.2020  via

Students with a German Bachelor degree can apply via the "Bewerbungsportal" in the period 15.05. - 31.05.2020. Unfortunately, the university administration was not able to provide a longer application period for our study program.

We appologize for this very short application period!

Corona Situation

  • Lecture time of this summer semester: 20.4. - 17.7.2020
  • 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 allwod in laboratories.
  • Lab courses, and classroom teaching are not allowed in this semestr. Nevertheless, all neuroscience modules are held online during their planned time slots. Lab work is replaced by assignments, which can be done in home office. Therefore, some courses have additional requirements (e.g. Matlab knowledge for data analysis).
  • The only exception is the lab animal science course, which legally requires animal handling and hands-on lab routines. This module will take place when lab work in groups is allowed again, probably in September.

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 (maskrter-neu12dcfrosci6yrnence(at)unfyi-oldenburg.w8deucfn (, 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
