Continuing your studies by doing a Master’s Degree is the option that more and more students choose since it allows for widening your knowledge, as well as the professionalisation in a much more specific and delimited field that can be chosen regarding personal interests.  The Master’s Degree in Biotechnology and Biomedicine attracts any person interested in science, biology, chemistry, biomedicine or technological research, as it is the case of the students that have already received a previous training in the field of the disciplines of health or science, as biotechnologists, biochemists or medical scientists.

 What do you need to know before studying the Master’s Degree in Biotechnology and Biomedicine?

The knowledge in Biomedical Sciences and Biotechnology has an aspect of undoubted transfer, since it is being applied to the development of new therapies, products and services. The methods developed in these field underline the most state-of-the-art advances in medicine and agriculture and, therefore, they contribute to improve our environment, our economic welfare and our health. The students interested in continuing their studies in this field have to take into account some aspects:

We also have to be interested in the currency of its subjects, the quality of the facilities and the teaching body and in the accreditation and evaluation procedures to which it has been subjected.

2. This curriculum must have practical and theoretical subjects, practices in laboratories and work placements in renowed firms. In the case of subjects such as Practical cases in Biomedicine and Biotechnology or Practical cases in Biotechnology firms . These contents are oriented in offering specialised training that also allow for research training, which makes possible the access to the Doctoral Studies.

3. Knowing who teaches the classes and what entities collaborate in the curriculum. If the master’s degree has renowned professors in the field of these studies they can result much more beneficial and can open the doors to the labour market, either duet to the knowledges obtained or due to the work placements.

4. Considering the facilities of the master’s degree. The workplace and the place to do research is very important when choosing to study a determined master’s degree, since having modern and cutting edge facilities from the technological point of view may be a complement for our future.
