Are you interested in biomedical research? Do you want to use your knowledge in biomedicine to develop new medicines? As a student in the Master’s Programme in Biomedicine at Uppsala University, you will obtain in-depth knowledge about some of our major diseases and the brain, both healthy and diseased. You will follow the process of developing new drugs, from finding new targets to the final product. Prepare for your career in for example research, clinical trials or drug development.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The theme of the Master’s Programme in Biomedicine is “From the ailing body and the ailing brain to the discovery and development of new drugs”. The focus is on research-oriented questions for application in academic research and in the pharmaceutical or life-science industry.
With a focus on the link between pathophysiology and drug development, and by offering opportunities for specialisation and advancement in your field of interest, the programme provides an excellent base for future work in science, both academically and within the life science industry. Practical experience of experimental strategies and scientific thinking is an integral part of this Master’s programme and you will get in close contact with exciting research projects.
As a student in the Master’s Programme in Biomedicine you will develop your creativity and problem-solving ability through seminars, journal clubs and experimental projects.
You acquired a broad theoretical base during your Bachelor’s studies in medicine, pharmacy, biology or another Life Science area and now you want to expand your skillset in the intersection between understanding diseases and curing them.
You are naturally curious and have an analytical attitude that makes you able to apply your theoretical knowledge to solve problems. Your university was well equipped so you have good practical experience of working in a lab and can stay safe while doing so.
You are able and willing to express your thoughts in writing and speaking and expect to contribute as much to the educational experience of others as you expect to learn from their experience and knowledge. You can critically analyse and reflect on problems and are creative and innovative enough to come up with your own ideas. You enjoy problem solving and team work and your natural curiosity drives you to seek a deeper understanding, not just to learn the facts.
A PhD education is a distinct possibility in your future so you would value coming in close contact with current research and prominent researchers in your field. Starting to work in the life science industry right after graduation is also something you might be considering.
The programme leads to a Master of Medical Science (120 credits) with Biomedicine as the main field of study. It is also possible to graduate after one year and obtain a Master of Medical Science (60 credits).
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university. The main field of study must be in biomedicine, medicine, pharmacy, biology, or a similar field of study that gives relevant knowledge in cell and molecular biology, chemistry and biochemistry, pharmacology, physiology and neurobiology.
Also required is knowledge and practical experience of laboratory experiments in life sciences.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students with a Bachelor’s degree or one-year Master’s degree from a biomedicine programme have priority.
Selection among other applicants is based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- previous professional experiences.
