The MSc Pharmaceutical Sciences is meant to educate students that will have in-depth theoretical knowledge and extensive laboratory skills, which allow them to be involved in many areas related to medicines, clinical analysis and investigation.

The Msc programme integrates disciplines in areas like chemistry, biology and medicine in the first three years and pharmaceutical disciplines like pharmacology, technology, pharmagenomics and regulatory sciences in last semesters.

A professional practice in a hospital and in a community Pharmacy completes the course.

This is the only degree that leads to the profession of Pharmacy.

The applications for public higher education are made annually through national call and/or special contests.
