Program description

Study laboratory animal science in Germany


RWTH Aachen University offers a master degree in Laboratory Animal Science that aims to supply the acute demand from industry, research and the regulatory authorities for qualified personnel in laboratory animal science.

This Master in Laboratory Animal Science is special in that it has this as a primary focus, which other disciplines such as medicine, veterinary medicine or bio-medicine, do not. 

In order for the 3Rs (Reduction, Refinement & Replacement of animal experiments according to Russell & Burch, 1959) to be effectively implemented scientists must not only be receptive to improvements but also receive outstanding training.

The implementation of EU directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes has immediate consequences for scientific personnel, their training needs and the associated job market.
