The pre-doc year curriculum for the Copenhagen Bioscience PhD Programme includes five courses. Copenhagen Bioscience PhD Programme pre-doc students are automatically registered for and must complete all five courses.
Current PhD students enrolled at any university may apply to join any of the five courses. If registered for a course, students must attend all sessions comprising that course. There is no charge for course attendance (for students registered at Danish universities). Note that we cannot offer funding for transport.
The course ‘Introduction to Molecular Bioscience’ is also offered as a Master’s course. Students must attend all course seminars. For this course, Master’s, pre-doc and PhD students attend the same seminars but complete different course assignments.
For more information about the courses, please see the course descriptions listed below. Contact the course organizer if you have any questions.

Feedback from students:
“Opened my eyes to the fact that I actually wasn’t able to critically read a paper, but gave me tools to improve” – Protein Research and Critical Thinking student
“The discussions were very fruitful, I have been refreshed and updated on an overview of the major problems in the field” – Stem Cell Research and Critical Thinking student
“A good way to obtain new perspectives and learn how to be critical when reading articles” – Basic Metabolic Research and Critical Thinking student
“The format of the course, as a round table for open debate with top researchers as moderators, was a great opportunity to learn more about their fields of research” – Bioengineering and Critical Thinking student
“That was fun!” – Bioengineering and Critical Thinking student
