If you are interested in pursuing a dynamic career in biotechnology, we invite you to apply to our Master of Biotechnology Program. The admissions committee reviews each application holistically, considering factors such as standardized test scores (GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, etc.), GPA, performance in an interview (in person, by phone, or Skype), and recommendation letters. Typically, an application is reviewed within 4-6 weeks after its online submission, and an interview is scheduled with all qualified students. Supplementary materials (official standardized test scores and recommendation letters) are requested after the interview.
Below you will find information about application deadlines and how to apply. Additional information about admissions can be found on the MBP FAQ page.
