Access to the MCMB is open to university graduates (graduates, engineers) in areas related to the contents of the programme (biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, environmental sciences, mathematics, chemistry, physics and biosanitary degrees).

Graduates from foreign education systems -with degrees similar to the above- may access the Master’s degree without their homologation, after accrediting that they have a level of training equivalent to the corresponding Spanish degrees and that they are eligible in the country issuing the degree for access to postgraduate studies.

If you wish to choose the research orientation, it is very important to have a commitment to the direction of the Master’s Thesis, prior to enrolment. If this is not the case, it is recommended to enrol in the academic orientation. The lines of research and those responsible for them can be consulted here.

Given that part of the Master’s activities (lectures, assignments, documentation, essay writing, etc.) are carried out in English, a minimum level of English of A2, elementary, Waystage or equivalent is established as a criterion for admission. This criterion will be assessed in the section on the adequacy of previous training.

  • The average grade of the academic record: 34%
  • The affinity of the admission degree and adequacy of prior learning: 33%
  • Research experience: 33%
