Opinion of MAMBE students
Read below what (former) course participants think about the MAMBE curriculum and how it helped in their professional career:
"The interdisciplinary link of molecular and
evolutionary biology is unique"
Anke Kloock, MSc
(PhD student at Oxford University, UK)
"Right after my Bachelor of Science in biology in Kiel, I started the German general Master of Science in biology in Kiel. When the MAMBE started, I decided to switch from the German general master to the more specific MAMBE program, as it reflects my interests in a better way than the general Master of Science in Biology. The interdisciplinary link of molecular and evolutionary biology of the MAMBE curriculum is unique.
Directly after finishing MAMBE in Kiel, I moved to Oxford to do my PhD there. I started in October 2016, and I can tell that without MAMBE I would most likely do not my PhD there. Due to MAMBE being taught completely in English, I hold an international degree, with which it was easier for me to apply to Oxford University. In the UK it is not usual to do a MSc, but I realize that this Master helped me a lot in terms of gaining experience and knowledge. Without MAMBE, I would not have been able to perform my own PhD project in the way in which I can perform it now. I am much more independent and look forward to have my very own project for the time of my PhD.
I never regretted my switch from the German general master to the English specialized MAMBE program and I can just encourage students to study MAMBE and to profit from this interdisciplinary study program in every sense!"
"The most helpful courses of the MAMBE curriculum
were the 'scientific presentation and writing' courses"
Mirja Gudzuhn, BSc
(current MAMBE student)
"My expectations from MAMBE were to learn more about evolution and especially about the evolution of microbes, because I am very interested in microbiology. The connection between microbiology and evolution is really great in the MAMBE curriculum.
However, the most helpful courses of the MAMBE curriculum were the 'scientific presentation and writing' courses. We enormously improved our ability to present a scientific talk and to write a scientific paper."
