International Master program in Evolution, Ecology and Systematics (EES) LMU Munich

EESLMU stands for the Munich Graduate School for Evolution, Ecology and Systematics. Since 2007 the University of Munich (LMU) offers a 2-year, international Master program in Evolution, Ecology and Systematics (EES).

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. All courses are offered in English. 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.
Applications to start in October 2009 are now welcome from highly motivated students who have a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in biology or a related subject.

Application deadlines: 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).
