The Master´s Degree Programme in Biomedicine offers a unique training opportunity in molecular biosciences combined with medicine at the UEF School of Medicine. The training advances your knowledge in the most recent developments of molecular biomedicine and its translational opportunities, focusing on genome-based prognostics and diagnostics as well as personalized treatments.
The thesis-based graduate programme is research-intensive and has been developed by experienced teachers and scientists at the Institute of Biomedicine, A. I. Virtanen Institute for Molecular Sciences, and School of Pharmacy. It provides you with a solid background for e.g. in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and also for postgraduate studies. The master thesis project is conducted in research groups in the UEF or for an industrial partner.
The master level studies focus on Molecular Medicine, i.e. on the principles of disease development, diagnostics, and the treatment at the molecular and cellular level. The teaching is given at an advanced level by research professors from Institute of Biomedicine, A. I. Virtanen Institute for Molecular Sciences, and School of Pharmacy. The M.Sc. research project and thesis is done under the supervision of reserch group leaders. It is also possible to do the research project in bio-pharma companies.
Experts of biomedicine are an increasingly important link between medicine and natural sciences. In tomorrow’s labour market, these experts will have entirely new kinds of roles. There is a need for biomedical experts in research, companies, and the health care sector alike. For instance, personalised patient care calls for understanding of the molecular mechanisms of diseases, as well as mastery of rapidly developing technologies and data masses. Biomedicine is an international field in which it is easier to find employment abroad than for example in the field of medicine, which is more closely nationally regulated. International career prospectives are enhanced by the fact that biomedicine education is offered in English
MSc graduatting from Biomedicine are working as
- researchers (universities, research institutes and pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device companies)
- development and quality management officers
- medical science liaisons (healthcare consulting professionals who are employed by above mentioned companies)
- teachers (universities, polytechnics)
- officials (state/municipal government, EU agencies)
Applying and admission
Students eligible to apply should have at least Bachelor’s or equivalent degree in an applicable field (e.g., ., biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, biomedicine) corresponding to at least 3 years’ of full‐time academic studies (equivalent of 180 ECTS credit units in the Finnish university system) obtained at an internationally recognized and accredited university or higher education institution (Students with Finnish University of Applied Sciences degree are not electable). Applicants must demonstrate excellent skills of English language. A letter of motivation and recommendations from two referees are also reguired. The referees must be academics (teachers or supervisors) from the university where the applicant has studied, or supervisor from the place of employment. Please use the reference letter form. The filled and signed reference letter should be sent by each referee in sealed envelope to UEF-addmission, P.O.Box 1627, FI-70211 KUOPIO, FINLAND or by personal email to email@example.com
Note that biological, environmental, medical, veterinarian or pharmacy studies, as such, do not give adequate knowledge-base to BIOMED MSc studies. For successful study performance a more comprehensive foundation about biochemistry and gene regulation/function is needed.
The application is filled in and submitted online at web site: studyinfo.fi by 31st January 2020, at 15:00 (GMT+2). Incomplete or delayed applications will not be considered. Late applications will not be processed. Submitted application forms and documents will not be returned.
UEF Addmission verifies applicants’ language skills according to the programme-specific requirements, and processes applicants’ educational certificates. This includes verifying the authenticity of the educational documents as well as credential evaluation.
The application period starts 1.11.2019 and ends 31.1.2020 at 15:00 (GMT+2). For more information about application prosedure, please visit Studyinfo.fi and the helpful pages of UEF Addmission. For more information about the programme, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Student selection will be based on the application documents and evaluation how the applicant’s skills and competences gained by the previous academic studies correspond to the Master´s studies applied. Also the success in earlier studies, possible earlier research experience, the Motivation letter and the performance in the interview will be taken into account in the selection process. Note, that a previous MSc degree (or higher), or present study place in University of Eastern Finland, are not necessarily considered to be beneficial. Meeting the minimum application requirements does not guarantee acceptance to the programme.
The admission is conditional if the degree is not completed by 31th January 2020. The applicant informs the estimated graduation date in the application form. The final deadline to submit the officially certifiedcopy of the Bachelor´s degree certificate (in original language and as translations, if applicable) to the University of Eastern Finland is 7th August 2020. The proof of the completed degree can be submitted together with the confirmation on accepting the offered study placement. If the copy of the official degree certificate does not reach the University of Eastern Finland by the deadline, admission to the Master’s programme will be cancelled. The country‐specific regulations are described in University Admissions Finland webpage.
