PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

  • The objective

The goal of this programme is to educate specialists for research, development, education, business and public sector to solve problems in modern biomedical sciences, environment and ecology.

  • Career opportunities

A graduate is able to work at high technology industry, research and development, education, medical institutions, private and public agencies where knowledge in a field of biophysics and life sciences are acquired or applied.

  • Access to further studies

Masters of Sciences in Biophysics can continue scientific career in doctoral (PhD) studies in life sciences.

 

KEY LEARNING OUTCOMES

A holder of Master’s degree in Biophysics has good knowledge of general principles of operation and pathology in live systems, the capabilities and limitations of modern biophysical methods, principles of data analysis and planning of scientific investigation. The graduate is able to constantly renew the knowledge and apply it to solve problems. He/she is also able to transfer knowledge and concepts to specialists and non specialists.

EXAMINATION AND ASSESSMENT REGULATIONS

The main form of evaluation is an examination. However, courses units may be evaluated by the pass/fail evaluation as well. Every course unit is concluded with either a written or written-oral examination or pass/fail evaluation. Student's knowledge and general performance during the exam are evaluated using grading scale from 1(very poor) to 10(excellent), or by pass or fail evaluation in the cases when pass/fail evaluation is foreseen as a final evaluation of the course unit.

 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Academic entry qualification overview

Bachelor's degree or its equivalent in Life Sciences;

English language

English language proficiency – the level not lower than B2 (following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), or TOEFL score 75/IELTS score 6.

APPLICATION AND SELECTION REQUIREMENTS

The grade for admission (K) is calculated by the following formula:

K= 0,4V+0,3E + 0,3D

where V – is the average of all bachelor grades (except for final bachelor thesis and/or final bachelor exam);
E – evaluation of motivation letter;
D – evaluation of final bachelor thesis.
