Studies and teaching

The Faculty of Life Sciences offers nine Bachelor's degree courses and nine Master's degree courses. English is the language of instruction in eight of the Master's degree courses. Students in the international European Master of Medical Technology and Healthcare Business (EMMaH) study not only at HAW Hamburg but also in France and Portugal.

The Nutrition and Home Economics B.Sc., Health Sciences B.Sc., Health Sciences M.Sc. and Master of Public Health degree courses can also be studied part-time. The part-time options are not specially designed courses, but rather individually extended versions of the original courses. The examination and study regulations for the respective full-time degree courses apply. Two part-time semesters are counted as one subject semester and two university semesters. The student advisors in the departments are the contact people for individual study planning.

The Process Engineering Bachelor's degree course is also offered as a cooperative degree programme.
