In 2013-2014 a new study plan for this master'sdegree has been put in place, which offers several advantages over the previous one. Among the strengths of this new version of the master'sdegree are:
Ideally, new students will have graduated in Genetics at the UAB, but the profile of those who have graduated in other disciplines at the Faculty of Biosciences of the UAB (Biomedical Sciences, Biotechnology or Biology) is also suited to the content and objectives of the master's degree inAdvanced Genetics. The profile of graduates in Biology or a similar subject from other Spanish universities is also appropriate. Similarly, the Master's degree is suitable for students of Veterinary Science and Medicine.
Apart from their educational background, the students should be highly motivated, both in exploring the theoretical aspects of Genetics and in how Genetics can help solve many of the problems faced by today's society. The ability to work in a team is also required, not only because experimental work is always done in a group, but because solutions can often be found only by interacting with other specialists, whether in Genetics or in other fields. Finally, the Master's degree has a heavy workload, so a high level of dedication is required.
Access to this master'sdegree is open to holders of an official bachelor's degree from a Spanish university or from another higher education institution within or outside the European Higher Education Area, provided this gives access to postgraduate studies in the country of issue.
The committee will interview those who cannot certify that they have level B1, in order to ensure that they would be able to follow the classes without difficulty.
Once admission is granted, places will be allocated according to the following criteria:
No work experience is required.

The Universitat AutÚnoma de Barcelona was founded in 1968. The founders aimed to establish four principles of autonomy: freedom to select teaching staff, admission available to all students (but with a limited number), freedom to create its own study plans and freedom to administrate the University's capital. It is therefore a young university, but in its short history it has moved forward at a rapid pace.
