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. Students must attend all course sessions. There is no charge for attendance of the course (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 Masters course. Masters and pre-doc/PhD students attend the same seminars but complete different course assignments.
Please check the course descriptions listed below and contact the course organizer if you have any questions.
Course descriptions and links for application:
