Background to the São Paulo and Münster double degree in Biosciences (SãMBio)
From 2014 until 2017, the Faculty of Biology of the University of Münster and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the Universidade de São Paulo were organising a very successful student exchange. To extend the cooperation between both institutions, from October 2017 we will jointly organize the SãMBio double degree program. Participants of the SãMBio program who successfully complete the MSc-program at either the Faculty of Biology of the WWU or the Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the USP and earn at least 30 ECTS with relevant courses at the partner university, will receive a degree from both universities.

What are the advantages of our double degree program?

  • Profit from the complementary research focus of both universities
  • Receive an international education
  • Prepare yourself for the global job market
  • Explore a new continent
  • Discover a foreign culture
