The extent of the programme is 120 credits (ECTS), to be completed in two-years of full-time studies. The degree consists of

  • 80 credits of advanced studies in Plant Biology, including Master’s thesis (30 credits)
  • 40 credits of other studies from this programme or other programmes

The 80 credits' advanced studies in Plant Biology consists of 20 credits' joint courses + 2 x 15 credits' alternative modules + 30 credits' MSc thesis. By choosing the 2 alternative 15 credits' modules you find interesting you will be able to deepen your expertise in particular areas of plant biology. Your degree can thus be tailored depending on your aspirations, whether you want to be a university researcher, entrepreneur, or environmental/agricultural consultant. You will also be free to pick individual courses from any module, without having to take all courses in it. However, each module is a coherent entity so we recommend that you take all of the courses in it. See here the more detailed list of the PBIO programme's modules and study units.

The joint courses and the courses included in the seven alternative 15 credits' modules of the programme's five teaching/research fields are presented below:
