ProfileApplicants hold at least a 4 stages bachelors' degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences (or an equivalent qualification) obtained in an emerging or developing country.
Applicants comply with the university requirements of English knowledge.
ObjectivesThe postgraduate studies are meant for applicants coming from emerging or developing countries who were little or not exposed to scientific literature and research techniques during their bachelor's or master's studies.
Students are introduced in scientific work and rationale by bringing them in direct contact with practical laboratory work. The research project enables the student to conduct experimental scientific research within the framework of a research programme of a laboratory of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The theoretical courses expand the student's theoretical qualifications allowing him/her to conduct the experimental work with improved comprehension. During the examination, emphasis is laid on the understanding and knowledge of the executed experimental work.
Students who are granted the postgraduate degree "cum laude" (with praise) or higher have fulfilled the requirements to be admitted to the doctoral programme.
Students will learn to:
- conduct and plan experiments independently,
- search for and analyse scientific literature,
- write a critical report in sound scientific language,
- present results in front of an audience and respond to questions on the subject.
