About Molecular Medicine

The field of molecular medicine is often referred to as "tomorrow's medicine". It aims to provide a molecular understanding of how normal cellular processes change, fail or are destroyed by disease. The purpose of the MSc programme is to develop knowledge and skills in cellular and molecular biology. These have applications in both research and practical clinical work, and will contribute to an increased understanding of processes, diagnostics and treatment of diseases.



The application deadline for international applicants is 15 January. The application deadline for Norwegian/Nordic applicants is 15 April. You submit your application electronically.


Career Prospects

The MSc in Molecular Medicine qualifies graduates for a wide range of careers, including practical clinical work and technical executive positions in hospital laboratories, and positions in pharmaceuticals and MedTech/BioTech companies.


Programme Components

The MSc is a two-year, full-time programme starting in the autumn semester. There are two main components: a master's thesis worth 60 credits, and theoretical and methodological courses totalling a further 60 credits.
