The research specialisations are considered to be default specialisations. Hence, students will only be admitted to the master on a research specialisation. Students following the research specialisations continue their research training in the second year. Students opting for a non-research specialisation will be admitted after the successful completion of their first year of the master programme.
Every master student of Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences has to start with a Research Project of 9 months (RP1) within the LACDR (our research institute). On the website of the LACDR you can find information on the various research programmes that are offered by our research divisions. Research specialisations are associated with the research themes of the different divisions.
