Bachelor's programme in Biomedicine

This programme gives you extensive knowledge of the biology and pathology of the human body with understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying major global diseases, e.g. cancer, cardiovascular diseases, allergies, infections and dementia, and also knowledge of their diagnosis and treatment.

You will be trained in an active research environment and have contact with the front-line of biomedical and clinically oriented research through lectures, seminars, laboratory practices and projects. As biomedicine is an international subject and has an international work arena students are encouraged to study part of the programme at one of our international partner universities.

Many Bachelor´s students, with their solid base in biomedicine, continue into our master´s programmes in biomedicine, toxicology or bioentrepreneurship from which they carry on into research in academia or industry or into management in the life science sector.

    Master's programme in Biomedicine

    The Master's Programme in Biomedicine is a natural education to follow an achieved BSc in the biomedical field.

    The programme advances your knowledge in the broad and expanding fields of biomedicine and molecular medicine, aiming to contribute to improved human health. The Bologna Declaration in higher education throughout Europe is implemented, giving a student-centred education with an outcome-based curriculum.

    The programme is developed by experienced scientists and is based on work done in the research laboratories at Karolinska Institutet.

    It consists of compulsory taught components, large proportions of individual projects including a degree project and advanced elective courses. There are also opportunities for exchange studies.
