Bachelor programme

The Department for Medical Informatics of the University Medical School Göttingen is one of the founding institutes of the Applied Informatics programme. Bachelor students of Applied Computer Science are enrolled at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at Georg-August University. There the basics of computer science and mathematics are also taught to computer scientists*. The course of studies is - provided that you have a university entrance qualification - open to admission. We are always available to advise you on the orientation of your studies. The easiest way to request a consultation appointment is by e-mail. We also recommend that you take advantage of the wide range of advisory services offered by the university.

You can easily apply for a study place online. You can begin your studies in any winter semester (in October of each year). The language of instruction in the course of study is German.


In the bachelor's degree program in Applied Computer Science, all students attend a common core curriculum at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. At the beginning of the second curriculum you decide on an application subject ("major"). The application subject Medical Informatics is taught at the University Medical School Göttingen. This has two major advantages for the students. First, short distances in everyday life, because the faculty buildings are only a few hundred meters apart. The central campus is also within walking distance. Secondly, you will be trained in the immediate vicinity of medical care. This enables a close interlocking of theory and practice, which only few universities in Germany can offer.

Bachelor's graduates from our curriculum possess a high level of practical skills and, for further vocational training, the ability to independently familiarize themselves with new areas. The Bachelor graduates of the Göttingen Medical Informatics curriculum have

  • sound basic knowledge of the discipline,
  • good basic knowledge of standards in the health care system,
  • good basic knowledge of IT systems in the healthcare sector,
  • good basic knowledge of social security systems,
  • good basic knowledge in biomedicine,
  • a good understanding of the working methods of the professions that use medical informatics
  • good technical and methodological skills, which allow flexible work in different areas.

This profile is supplemented by training in the fundamentals of computer science and mathematics, with in-depth coverage of telematics, operating systems, software engineering, formal systems, theoretical computer science and databases.
