The Biomedical Sciences programme of the University of Insubria provides the student with an advanced and operative background in the field of biomedical sciences, with an in-depth knowledge of the methodologies, and data acquisition and processing techniques that will enable her/him to investigate the molecular and systemic mechanisms to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.


About the Program

The Double Degree curriculum mainly focuses on immunology and clinical applications; the students admitted to this program will attend their second-year classes and will train to prepare their thesis at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, and at the end of the course will obtain the title of Master of Science Degree (MSc) in Biomedical Sciences also from the German University.

Job opportunities for graduates in the Biomedical Sciences programme of the University of Insubria are available in the fields of scientific communication, in the medical management of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies (as medical advisor or medical science liason), and in laboratories performing clinical, biomolecular, genetic and cytogenetic, microbiological, pharmaco-toxicological, and quality control analyses. Biomedical scientists are also qualified to actively participate in the design and conduction of research projects on biological concepts and theories applied to the biomedical field, as well as in the dissemination of the achieved results across the scientific community.

The degree also provides access to doctoral programs in the fields of Biology and Biomedicine, to various specialization schools in the Biomedical area, and to the state exam for qualification as a biologist.

Programme Structure

  • The study plan includes two different curricula. The first (Basic and Applied Biomedical Sciences) provides a very flexible and dynamic training, offering a wide range of elective courses to allow the students to customize their study plan according to their interests and inclinations. Thus, the students can opt for a more in-depth study of the cellular and molecular bases of pathological processes and of the main diagnostic-therapeutic intervention modes, with a special focus on the areas of oncology and neuroscience, as well as develop stronger applied biomedical skills.
