MSc/PhD Program


Lectures, tutorials, and seminars take place in the new building of the European Neuroscience Institute Göttingen (ENI). This building also houses the coordination office.

Modern laboratory and computing facilities in the affiliated departments are available to the students during research projects and practical courses.

The Karl Thomas Library at the Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine (see picture) used to house the program's selection of approximately 150 different textbooks and monographs relevant to the lectures and courses. Due to renovation works, for the study years 2014/15 and 2015/16 the books had to be moved to the Otto-Hahn-Bibliothek (see below).

Additional libraries available to the students of the Neuroscience program include the Lower Saxony State and University Library (SUB), the Otto Hahn Library at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the library of the University Klinikum, and the subject related collection of journals, textbooks and monographs in the participating departments and institutes.

The computing facilities at the Karl-Thomas and Otto-Hahn libraries provide full access to the OVID data base of the Max Planck Society and a large collection of online journals.
