    Specific admission requirements

    Applicants eligible for admission to the Master’s Degree in Biomolecules and Cell Dynamics must hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Experimental or Health Sciences: Graduates in Biochemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Medicine, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Food Science or other similar fields, and be interested in guiding their training to specialization in Molecular and Cell Biology. Should a Spanish or foreign graduate of any other discipline apply for admission, their academic background will be examined before granting admission.

    Also, since lessons are taught in English, proficiency in English language (B2 or equivalent level) must be proved.

    The Management Committee of the Master in Biomolecules and Cell Dynamics is the body responsible for the admission process. The Committee will evaluate each application for admission taking into consideration the applicant’s merits, training, English level etc. The selection criteria will include the assessment of the following:

    Selection criteria

    • 1. Academic transcript of records (50-70%).
    • 2. The adequacy of the applicant’s profile to the Master (previous stays at research centers, scholarships, letters of recommendation, access degree etc.) (10-35%).
    • 3. Other merits (5-15%).
    • 4. Interviews with applicants could be request in cases where deemed appropriate.
    • 5. Once the deadline for submitting applications is over, applicants who have met all requirements must submit a specific selection form online.
