Introduction

Örebro University is a young, modern and rapidly growing university with an ambitious agenda for the future. Our 15,000 students and 1,300 employees are a living proof of that have succeeded to create an attractive place for both work and study. Our vision - the courage to review and the ability to evolve – from the base of our everyday work. Our master students’ take part of internationally successful research and we often get positive feedback about the closeness between students, teachers, researchers and professors that comes with classes of maximum 20 students.

We offer high-quality international master’s programmes in a variety of disciplines: social science, communication, economics, statistics, informatics, chemistry, robotics, medicine and sports. Our strengths are our dynamic and well-established research environments – where you as a master’s student will be a major contributor.

Our connected campus is close to both nature and Örebro city, with a wide range of culture, sports and events. Its prime location with Stockholm, Gothenburg and Oslo within easy reach makes it an ideal place to be.

Moreover, if you are worried about finding a place to live, you can stop worrying. We offer support in finding a student accommodation for our international Master´s students.

To summarize: If you are looking for a high-quality master’s programme where you have a closeness to teachers, researchers and professors, in a country ranked as one of the safest in the world, and where you get support in finding accommodation, then Örebro University should be your first choice.

Master in Cardiovascular Medicine

Campus Full time 2 years August 2019 Sweden Örebro

This international Master's programme focuses on frontline knowledge in the field of experimental cardiovascular medicine. The programme is organised as a two-year problem-based learning (PBL) study programme and is coordinated by the Cardiovascular Research Centre at Örebro University in close cooperation with other research groups in Europe. [+]

This international Master's programme focuses on frontline knowledge in the field of experimental cardiovascular medicine. The programme is organised as a two-year problem-based learning (PBL) study programme and is coordinated by the Cardiovascular Research Centre at Örebro University in close cooperation with other research groups in Europe.

The programme is concerned with the understanding of cellular and molecular mechanisms related to the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases. In focus are new pharmacological and interventional therapies for future treatments of cardiovascular diseases. The goals are that the students shall acquire in-depth theoretical knowledge and excellent methodological skills including in vivo and in vitro models used to study cardiovascular disease. Part of the programme is linked with two other Master's programmes, each supported by the three strong research environments in medicine at Örebro University. The joint courses will provide a broader insight into general aspects influencing public health in society today as well as research methodology and design. All courses are taught in English....

Master in Innate Immunity in Health and Disease

Campus Full time 2 years August 2019 Sweden Örebro

The international Master's programme Innate Immunity in Health and Disease leads to a Degree of Master in Medical Sciences and will give you in-depth knowledge in microbiology, cell biology and molecular biology essential for understanding the function of the innate immune system. [+]

Do you want to know more about infectious diseases and to understand why some individuals get a severe life-threatening disease, whereas others are only mildly affected?

The international Master's programme Innate Immunity in Health and Disease leads to a Degree of Master in Medical Sciences and will give you in-depth knowledge in microbiology, cell biology and molecular biology essential for understanding the function of the innate immune system. The Master's programme will prepare you for doctoral studies or for work with biomedical issues in the industry or in the healthcare system. The programme is offered in cooperation with national and international research groups.

The programme is concerned with questions in relation to the function of the innate immune system. You will learn more about how the innate immune system detects and eliminates pathogenic microorganisms, infection strategies for different species of virus and bacteria and the cellular and molecular mechanisms behind inflammatory responses. The programme will give you knowledge and skills to use advanced scientific methodology and you will be trained to design, perform and interpret laboratory research in the area of inflammation and infection medicine....

Master in Nutritional Molecular Medicine and Bioinformatics

Campus Full time 2 years August 2019 Sweden Örebro

Nutritional Molecular Medicine and Bioinformatics is a two-year international Master's programme using problem-based learning (PBL) and designed to offer students scientific knowledge and competence to understand the complex bidirectional signalling between the gut and the brain. [+]

Have you ever wondered where the word gut feeling comes from, or why stress induces abdominal discomfort? If so, this Master's programme may be of interest to you.

Nutritional Molecular Medicine and Bioinformatics is a two-year international Master's programme using problem-based learning (PBL) and designed to offer students scientific knowledge and competence to understand the complex bidirectional signalling between the gut and the brain. It focuses on in-depth knowledge on how diet and nutrition, the intestinal microbes, the intestine and the brain interact, as well as: i) how this is related to aberrant function of the gut and the brain, ii) how this relates to clinical practice, and iii) how this can be elucidated by state-of-the-art clinical and experimental research. The programme also provides you with an understanding of: i) how cellular processes relate to organ functions, ii) how the (patho)physiology of gut-brain interactions relates to nutritional, microbiological, gastroenterological and neurobiological aspects (with a human and clinical perspective), and iii) how bioinformatics can be an important tool to reach that understanding. This knowledge is essential for the development of new strategies to diagnose, prevent and treat the often debilitating disorders related to gut and brain function.... [-]
