How do I benefit from the BioMed-Kolleg kompakt?

The BioMed-Kolleg kompakt is an offer of the International Study Centre of Heidelberg University especially for newly admitted first-year students with foreign educational qualifications.

This intensive course of 80 lessons (80 x 45 minutes) offers you targeted and comprehensive preparation for the thematic and linguistic language challenges of your degree programme directly before your start of studies. With us, you can

  • refresh and expand your subject-specific and language skills in the fields of biology, chemistry and physics, including the necessary mathematics
  • train crucial methodological skills for your studies - e.g. how presentations are prepared efficiently and given in an easy-to-grasp way using modern media
  • prepare for the requirements of the physics, chemistry, and biology practical courses through selected experiments/topics.

At the same time, you can familiarize yourself with Heidelberg University before day one of your degree programme.
