”The openness of the professors was a positive surprise at the University of Helsinki. Although I have experience in the industry, I lack experience in the laboratory. Not one professor denied me the opportunity to go to their labs to see what they were working on and to ask for internship possibilities.” Victor Manuel González Ramos is a student in the International Master's Programme in Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology at the University of Helsinki. The programme gives you an understanding of the global significance of microbes as remodelers and processors of life and the environment. You learn what type of research techniques are used to study viruses, bacteria and other microbes and how to apply that knowledge in medicine, industry and food production. Apply to our International Master’s Programmes before 11 January 2019.
