Overview

Program description:
Students participate in intensive advanced and high level courses in the different fields of biology, which are the most relevant for their specialization, to make them informed about the recent developments and frontline problems. Some 60 % of time is practical hours (spent on laboratory/field practice and on research) ensuring knowledge of state of the art methods. M.Sc. graduates will be able to participate creatively in research projects, to recognize and handle complex problems through multi-sided approach in planning and performing experiments. The knowledge obtained in the M.Sc. program forms an excellent basis that is necessary for studies in a Ph.D. program.

Entry requirements:
BSc degree preferably in biology related fields

Entrance exam:
Yes

Type of entrance exam:
oral

Entrance exam location:
Electronic

Entrance exam description:
Applicants will be informed via e-mail on the topics of the oral test two weeks before the entrance examination. The topics are equal to the Hungarian Biology masters entrance oral test topics. The Skype interview is oganised in an in advance collated time. Two examiners interview the applicant. During the interview, examiners gain information of the English comunication skills and the terminology knowledge, moreover on the preparedness of the applicant. The competence of the applicant will be evaluated on a percentual scale. Following all interviews, the eligible applicants will be scored.

Career opportunities

Biology M.Sc. program is intended for students who wish to pursue a research-oriented or teaching career in biology, for students who interested in carrying out distinguished scholarly activities: have original, creative and critical thinking and are able to develop a both theoretically and technically broadly based research knowledge in their selected fields of specialization or who want to gain competence in high/university level teaching.

M.Sc. graduates will be able to participate creatively in research projects, to recognize and handle complex problems through multi-sided approach in planning and performing experiments. The knowledge obtained in the M.Sc. program forms an excellent basis that is necessary for studies in a Ph.D. program.

Students having diploma from the Biology Master of Science Program of Eötvös Loránd University will be competent researchers in any countries on wide fields of biology from basic to applied science, they can get a job as researchers in industrial firms, different research institutes or even in other universities. Diploma awarded by Eötvös Loránd University scores full marks worldwide.

Those who do not want career as a researcher but are interested in more practice oriented jobs can exploit their knowledge from this program, after some further training, in teaching, in managing technology development projects at industrial or agricultural firms, and in governmental organizations.


Job examples

•Researcher in basic or applied research institutes in different fields of biological discovery or development (from agriculture through environment protection, health care, medical techniques and applications, to drug development).
•University teacher of different fields of biology, college or high school teacher of biology.
•Company employee of agricultural firms (gene technology of organisms, pest control e.t.c.), of industrial firms (among others, gene technology products, environment protection, drug development), officials in governmental organizations (e.g. health care, environment management and protection)
