Molecular Biotechnology is a study programme leading to a degree of Magister (equivalent of master’s degree). Students are required to collect 30 ECTS credits for each semester, i.e. a total of 120 ECTS credits for the whole programme (the updated programme is available HERE).

At the end of the programme students will write a diploma dissertation, which should give an account of  the results of their research.
