Description

Advertisement

The Global Master's Programme in Toxicology is unique in its cohesive focus on toxicology and health, and one of the oldest and most well-proven toxicology programmes in the world.

What happens during the programme?
Studying toxicology is a way of learning how to understand various mechanisms of toxicity and how to assess health risks with the use of chemicals in our daily life. Knowledge and training in toxicology will give you the opportunity to contribute to a future of safe and sustainable use of chemicals, pesticides and drugs.

The programme has an emphasis on toxicological testing and research, modes of action, and health risk/safety assessment using problem-based learning and real-life cases. The programme uses its close connection with high-quality research and risk assessment work, and collaborates with the pharmaceutical industry, national authorities, as well as with scientists at departments within and outside Karolinska Institutet.

Career opportunities after graduation
The programme is well-integrated in the research and risk assessment activities at Karolinska Institutet and gives you a solid foundation for a future as either a doctoral researcher or a risk/safety assessor.

Due to the tightening of chemical safety legislation, the demand for qualified toxicologists is increasing. If you want to make a difference to the world, toxicology is a never-ending challenge. You can contribute to meeting the international demand for qualified toxicologists of the future.

Accreditation

If you have satisfactorily completed certain undergraduate university studies, you may be given credits for them. You are also entitled to credits for other studies if the nature and extent of the knowledge and skills for which you are claiming credits are such that they are equivalent in the main to the education for which they are intended to be credited. You may also receive credits for knowledge and skills that you have acquired in the course of employment. An application for credits should be submitted as soon as you have been admitted to the Biomedicine programme. You should contact the study adviser.
Accreditation is reviewed by an examiner where a whole course or components of a course are involved. Accreditation is reviewed by a programme director for major parts of the programme in connection with admission to a later part or in the case of studies abroad where several courses are involved and also in connection with accreditation of a course as an optional course.
