International Master of Science in Biomedicine

The first semester of the degree programme takes place at the University of Luxembourg, the second at the University of Strasbourg and the third at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. During the fourth semester, students participate in an internship in the field of biomedical research either in a science laboratory at a university or with an external partner. It is during this time that students write their Master’s thesis.

You need to acquire 30 ECTS in each partner university and each semester.

  • IMBM - Track A: you need to take modules 1.1 + 1.2. + 1.5 + courses ISB701 + 102 + one language course from module 1.6.

If you are bilingual French + German, you can replace the language course by course ISB702.

As we are a small department, we do not offer any optional courses in this semester.

  • IMBM - Track B: not offered currently
