In the second year, you will mainly focus on your individual research project, and on the writing of your Master's thesis. Your project will be based on research performed by the Department of Medical Biology (IMB), and you will participate in one of these projects. The Master's thesis is expected to be an independent body of scientific work performed and presented by each student. The result of the work must be submitted as a written thesis and, as part of your examination, you will give a presentation of your thesis followed by an oral examination. The thesis, presentation and oral examination together counts as the final exam, and will be graded as a whole. As a student on the Master's degree program... [-]
