The Master's in Biomedical Sciences provides advanced training in the medical field based on solid scientific foundations combined with a great deal of practical work.
The course is based on acquiring advanced knowledge in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, toxicology and pharmacology.
During the first year of the Master's programme, students take very specialised courses in the field of biomedical sciences, such as Structural and Functional Proteomics, Gene Therapy, and Clinical Immunology.
They can then move towards more specific disciplines, such as toxicology, neuroscience, oncology, and molecular imaging.
The Master thesis is spread over both years of the programme, starting at the beginning of the second term in the first year and finishing at the end of the first term in the second year.
During these two years, students will also take specialised courses on the handling of laboratory animals. These courses in animal testing are followed by an assessment leading to a certificate required for all laboratory work involving animals.
At the end of the second year, students have the opportunity to carry out a long-term placement abroad or in the private sector that will enable them to embark on a PhD or get a job in industry.
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
Graduating with the Master's in Biomedical Sciences can lead to studing for a Specialised Master's in the biomedical field in Europe. Master students may also apply for the programme Certificate of Teaching for Upper Secondary Education.
