    • Suitability of previous studies
    • International mobility
    • Professional experience in the biotech sector or related areas
  2. Accredited English language skills above the minimum required to take the master’s degree (B1) (10%)
  3. Statement of interest, outlining the candidate’s reasons for applying (10%)
  4. Personal interview, if necessary (5%)

Students who wish to take subjects in English must score the maximum number of points for their English language skills. This score is assigned automatically to candidates from English-speaking countries.

The wording and objectives will also be evaluated, as these factors demonstrate the candidates’ level of maturity and reflect their previous training.
