Master Program in Evolution, Ecology and Systematics in Munich

The University of Munich (LMU) offers a 2-year, international master program
for highly motivated students from Germany and abroad with a background in
biology or a related subject. All courses are offered in English. The
program started in October 2007 with 11 students from North America,
South-America and Germany. Applications are now welcome to start in October

The EES Master program contains many innovative elements such as a mentoring
program, integrated skills courses and individual research training. We also
apply a feedback and revision system instead of simple grading. Classes are
small and students have a lot of contact to the teachers. Thanks to funding
by the Volkswagen Foundation, students can apply for their own research and
travel money and for money to invite international speakers. Unfortunately,
we cannot provide grants to cover costs of living. Students pay appr. 500
Euro tuition fees per semester.

Application deadlines in 2008: 30th of April (for non-EU students) and 30th
of June (for EU-students and others who don't need a visa to study
in Germany).
