Description of the programme
The use of biotechnology in medicine is becoming ever more widespread under continuous pressure from clinical needs. The development of sophisticated diagnostic methods, effective drug design and personalized therapies all require biotechnology.
Our programme has two practice-based tracks:
- medical biotechnology and
- pharmaceutical biotechnology.
Both tracks will equip graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in basic research, as well as the clinical and pharmaceutical applications of biotechnology.
The programme aims to deliver general knowledge in economics, management and business law. Although the course will cover mainly European Union practices, it will also discuss relevant issues specific for the USA, China and India.
Candidates will be able to choose from a great variety of subjects in basic laboratory research at the University, or applied research at pharmaceutical or biotechnology companies.
Candidates should possess a BSc with strong background in biology related subjects.
Candidates should also have a B2 level knowledge in English (TOFEL/IELTS, etc).
Admission will be given on basis of marks obtained in the Entry exam interview.
The application period starts on 1st March 2018 and lasts until 30th June 2018. The entrance exam interview can be taken by the middle of July 2018.
