The wide range of options available in the Industrial Pharmacy Master's programme can lead to very different individual curricula. In order to provide orientation, master curricula have been developed for students with different academic background (see modul handbook). The study coordinator advises students who wish to deviate from the model curricula on the individual possibilities.


Are laboratory courses carried out?

Depending on the module, laboratory courses (e.g. pharmaceutical development) or exercises (e.g. regulatory framework) have to be performed. Most practical courses and exercises will take place during the lecture period.
