Choice of additional subjects

  • When do I have to choose my complementary branches?

    In Biomedical Sciences, the complementary branches are chosen at the end of the second year of study. Some additional branches can already be selected at the end of the first year of study. An information event will be held during the second semester of the programme to introduce you to the various options.

  • Which complementary branches can I choose with the Biomedical Sciences major?

    Our degree programme offers two complementary branches, each worth 30 ECTS credits: in-depth biomedical sciences (BMS-A) and applied biomedical sciences (BMS-B). Choosing these two complementary branches gives you access to the consecutive Master programme in Bern. You can also choose other complementary branches totalling 30 or 60 ECTS (sport, biochemistry, computer science, etc.). In this case, a consultation with a study counsellor is necessary.
