The master's degree in Cytogenetics and ReproductiveBiology is aimed at graduates in Biosciences. Students should have strong analytical skills, a proactive attitude and determination, and should have completed their bachelor's degree studies in Biomedical Sciences, Genetics, Biology or Biotechnology, or their equivalents from other universities.

This master's degree is suitable both for students who wish to go into research and for those interested in clinical practice, in the following areas: Assisted Reproduction in Humans and Animals, Embryology, Genetics of Reproduction, Genetics of Cancer, Clinical Cytogenetics, Evolutionary Cytogenetics and Radiobiology.

Reproductive Biology provides knowledge of the cellular mechanisms involved in the reproduction of mammals, as well as of practical applications for the manipulation of gametes and embryos and their effects on both human reproduction and animal production and reproduction. Developments in assisted human reproduction techniques have opened a wide range of therapeutic possibilities to solve numerous reproductive problems affecting approximately 15% of the population. The growing demand of these treatment has brought about the need of professionals specialising in these techniques and with extensive lab and clinical practice expertise.

Career optionsYou will be enabled to develop the skills you acquire in professional, academic and research activities belonging to several specialised fields in the Biology of Cell Reproduction and Differentiation, in Basic and Applied Cytogenetics, Cancer and Radiobiology.

Admission requirements * Bachelor's degree in Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Genetics, Biotechnology, or their equivalents from other universities. Graduates in Microbiology or Biochemistry may also apply. In the latter cases, students' specific training in ReproductiveBiology and Cytogenetics is examined. If necessary, the master's committee will ask students to take bridging courses.

* Level B1 in Catalan or Spanish, in the case of students who do not have these as their first language. Students with no certificate of proficiency in these languages will be interviewed by the master's committee before a decision is taken on admittance or exclusion.

Selection criteriaShould the number of applicants be higher than that of places on offer, these will be allocated according to the following criteria:

Academic transcript (60): Scoring will be based on the following criteria:

* Between 0 and 1 point = 30
* Between 1 and 1.5 points = 35
* Between 1.5 and 2 points = 40
* Between 2 and 2.5 points = 45
* Between 2.5 and 3 points = 50
* Over 3 points = 60

Complementary trainingStudents with a bachelor's degree in Microbiology or Biochemistry, depending on the courses they have taken, may need to take and pass bridging courses.

The Master's Committee will examine students' previous studies and determine whether bridging courses need to be taken or not.

Bridging courses comprise a maximum of 21 ECTS credits distributed among the following subjects belonging to the Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Sciences of the Faculty of Biosciences at the UAB:

* Cytogenetics, 6 ECTS credits

* Technology of Reproduction, 6 ECTS credits

* Human Genetics, 6 ECTS credits

* Genetics and Reproduction, 3 ECTS credits
