Master Program in Biostatistics

Study Plan

Students are supposed to compile a study plan outlining which modules they plan to take in which semester and to have it approved by the scientific coordinator. A personal study plan is key to a successful participation in the program. The scientific coordinator will help to establish such a plan. The following table contains an EXAMPLE study plan, some of the modules shown below are not offered every year. Note that this plan is not binding (legally binding are only the conditions in the Academic Regulations of the Faculty of Science and of the Study Guide of the Master Program in Biostatistics).
