Biochemistry deals with fundamental questions, and the focus is always on the larger context: how can this knowledge be used to improve people's lives?
In addition to theoretical knowledge, the master’s degree in Biochemistry offers strong hands-on laboratory skills and training of modern methods by teachers active in research.
Due to the programme's small intake, students get a lot of attention, sometimes even one-to-one teaching. Reaching out to professors' offices is made easy. Students benefit from collegial interaction and the English-speaking study environment.
The skills gained in the programme offer you the academic training and expertise required to succeed in a research environment. Graduates of the programme have been able to get into very prestigious Ph.D. programmes in universities around the world, such as Harvard, Imperial College, Oxford, Karoliniska, Zürich, Lausanne, Helsinki, Vienna, Copenhagen and so on.
Many have also stayed at FBMM Oulu to continue in our Ph.D. Programme.
The programme will also open many opportunities in biomedical and related industries.
