Welcome to Oldenburg
The School offers two fellowships a year in collaboration with the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg Institute for Advanced Study, which can be used to fund research stays of up to six months. The programme is aimed at outstanding researchers from the fields of medicine and health sciences.
Students from abroad have the opportunity to spend a semester or complete an entire degree programme at School VI – Medicine and Health Sciences. The two English-taught Master’s degree programmes offered by the School in Neurocognitive Psychology and Neuroscience give students the opportunity to study at the University without having to first master the German language.
To be admitted to the degree programmes in Human Medicine (State Examination) and Physics, Technology and Medicine (Bachelor’s/Master’s), however, applicants are required to provide proof of their proficiency in German (Level 2 on the DSH (the German language test for university admission) or TestDaF Level 4 in all subcategories).
