Practical skills in the first four semesters are not required but are highly recommended in the advanced courses! If you are planning an exchange to a higher semester be sure to have already acquired some practical experience!

If you start to study biology at the TU Darmstadt you can expect a friendly atmosphere, well equipped laboratories and a multifaceted scientific education. You will develop scientific thinking and increase your practical laboratory skills. You can expect solid support from our faculty even as an alumnus!

The TU Darmstadt is also close to such well-known scientific industries and research centers, e.g. MERCK, EVONIK, GSI and DKFZ.
