Medical and Life Sciences

to Why HFU?

Sciences for life

Medical and life sciences are at the heart of our MLS faculty. With us, you'll be studying for the future - developing new therapies and diagnostic methods with the help of molecular medicine, supporting doctors as a Physician Assistant in the treatment of patients or contributing to making the world more sustainable with your biotechnological know-how! Become an expert in diagnostics, therapy and prevention or process engineering and biotechnology!

  • Ideal conditions The campus in Schwenningen has been a centre for medical and biotechnological research and teaching since 1988. You can design your individual study profile in modern lecture halls and excellently equipped laboratories.
  • Up-to-date content We get you fit in theory and practice - during your studies you'll be working on specific, current research issues in project work and internships.
  • Great prospects Our graduates have excellent opportunities on the job market - academically trained specialists in areas such as biomedicine, sustainability and patient care are in high demand.

Mission statement & academics

Our faculty is particularly strong in research – and we incorporate this into our teaching. With us, you'll be working on scientific projects during your studies. Our staff and professors will support you in this. And with our Research and Teaching Alliance (ReAching), we specifically support students who want to publish the results of their student research projects, theses or semester projects – an important step towards an academic career.

You'll also become familiar with professional practice in hospitals or industry at an early stage. During your internship semester, you'll leave the university and visit our partner companies and clinics. This not only gives you insights into everyday working life, but also allows you to make valuable contacts, perhaps even with your future employer.
