• Admission Requirements


Applicant Profile

The Master's Degree in Bioengineering is aimed at graduates in Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Pharmacy, Biology, Biological Systems Engineering, Nanosciences, Biomedical Sciences or others.

The Admissions Committee will study each candidature and, if necessary, prepare the content of the training complements to be carried out, according to the degree of access. The Master's Degree in Bioengineering is aimed at graduates from different disciplines, from Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Pharmacy, Biology, Veterinary, Environmental Sciences, Agronomic Engineering or others.

Admission

Depending on the degree achieved, the following additional specific academic modules are necessary:

  • Graduates in Biotechnology and Biochemistry: will not need any additional specific academic modules
  • Graduates in chemistry, chemical engineering, pharmacy, and associated qualifications: will need additional specific academic modules in microbiology and molecular cell biology
  • Graduates in biology, veterinary science, environmental science, agricultural engineering and associate qualifications: will need additional specific academic modules in Introduction to Process Engineering and Structure and Function of Biomolecules
  • Other qualifications: the Admission Committee of the master's degree will examine each case and establishes the contents of the additional specific academic modules for each applicant.

 

The additional specific academic modules established in the admission process are not part of the master's degree in Bioengineering taught at University Ramon Llull. Students will be able to take them at any university as long as the contents of the corresponding competencies can be accredited. During the month of September, before the master's degree program starts, IQS provides specific courses corresponding to the most common additional specific academic modules. Additional specific academic modules need to be accredited before students begin the master's degree.

Transfer Requirements

The Permanent Committee of the Academic Board, which examines each applicant and establishes the recognition of credits, will handle the admission of students from any national or foreign University system, that have studied at the undergraduate level within the EHEA framework.
 
In the case of students from EU member states, or from countries with which Spain has established international agreements, students are required to have a qualification enabling them to undertake graduate level University studies in their home country.  Students from outside of the EU, or from countries that do not have an established agreement with Spain, must have passed the corresponding University entrance exam.

 

Completion Requirements

Students must have earned all the credits undertaken in order to obtain the master's degree.

During the academic year, students will normally have two opportunities to pass exams: in February and in June – for the first semester subjects – and in June and in September – for the second semester subjects, or for subjects that last two consecutive semesters. Additionally, in the event that a student has not earned a minimum of 36 ECTS credits within the first year, he or she will not be able to submit the Master Thesis.

If a student does not pass an exam on the second attempt, two additional opportunities will be allowed. In the event that the student still has not obtained a pass in the subject, they can apply to the Permanent Committee of the Academic Board for a final opportunity to take the exam, justifying their position. The Permanent Committee of the Academic Board will examine the student's case and may complement this information by consulting the master's coordinator. If a student does not obtain a pass after having been granted an extra opportunity to take the exam, they will have to abandon the master's program.
