Why in Parma?

The second-cycle degree in Medical, Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Biotechnologies aims to train graduates who can enter the job market with an original curriculum and geared up in terms of professional skills.

Held in Parma, the course offers students three curricula:

  •     biotechnology for prevention and therapy
  •     biotechnologies applied to animal production and food safety;
  •     biotechnologies applied to regenerative and restorative medicine.

The main feature of the course is the acquisition of the skills, knowledge and communication abilities required both for access to higher education and for entering the world of work.

Data show that three years after graduation 90% of those surveyed have found employment, 41% are engaged in university courses or an internship and 54% recognised the effectiveness of the degree in the work they are currently performing.




After graduation
