      Admission Requirements

      To be eligible for the program a Bachelor's Degree (equivalent to a Swedish Bachelor’s Degree) with a major in the biological or medical area is required. The biological area can be defined as e.g. Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology or Physiology. The medical area is here defined as Biomedicine but can also include subjects like Pharmacology. A further requirement is proof of skills in English equivalent of studies at upper secondary level in Sweden, known as English course 6 / English course B. This is normally demonstrated by means of an internationally recognized test, e g IELTS or TOEFL or the equivalent.

      At the University of Skövde, you can study a one-year master’s programme in Infection Biology. The programme has been developed in close cooperation with businesses working within bioscience and the biotechnology sector.

      About the programme

      Infection Biology is a growing field within biology that combines immunology, microbiology, molecular biology and cell biology. Research and education within this field is important in order to understand and control various types of infectious diseases in the future.

      Constituent courses in the study programme

      During the first semester, you will study bioinformatics, biostatistics and infection biology at second-cycle level. You will learn experimental methods, so extensive independent laboratory work will play a key role. You will use techniques such as PCR, cloning, cell cultivation and protein expression alongside computer-based molecular biology and bioinformatics tools to analyse DNA, RNA and proteins. You will study molecular mechanisms and processes involved in the pathogenesis of various microorganisms, as well as the molecular and cellular process of immune defence. You will also learn about the structure of genes and proteins, as well as our understanding of their function and regulation.

      During the second semester, you will carry out a degree project (30 credits) at a business or an educational institution, either in Sweden or abroad. You will apply your new knowledge, working independently to solve topical, relevant research problems within infection biology.

      All teaching is conducted in English.

      Career opportunities

      You will be able to work within fields such as microbiology, cell biology, molecular biology and infection biology. There are many potential workplaces, both within Sweden and internationally. Examples include analytical and pharmaceutical companies, healthcare, and research laboratories within the public and private sectors.

      Opportunities for further studies

      After the programme, you can continue with third-cycle education.

      Research within this field

      You can find out more about the Systems Biology Research Centre.

      Opportunities for international studies

      You will have the opportunity to carry out part of your degree project abroad.
