Study programme

The workload for this Master's programme is 120 EC, equally distributed over two academic years of two semesters each. All students of a given cohort enter the programme together at the beginning of the academic year, following as a group each of the eight courses of the first year. We expect you to work for 40 hours per week, including preparing for classes and working on assignments. There are on average about twelve contact hours (attending lectures and lab meetings) per week.

All courses run in parallel for the full length of a semester and have been specifically developed for the MSBBSS programme. Courses and other curriculum components build upon each other regarding prerequisites and content, i.e., the content of the course is aligned to what is already being taught in previous courses.
