Biology

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Study in biology can lead to careers in health care, teaching, environmental conservation, and biotechnology. It can also form the base from which to pursue doctoral study in the areas of clinical or research work.

The formal higher education system of Finland is the 7-3-2-2 pattern. The university takes two years in vocational or technical education and finally two-year pre-tertiary education. Finland also has several public as well as private universities that have enabled accessibility of higher education to students.

Top Masters Programs in Biology in Finland. Life on Earth depends on solar energy captured by plants - they are the base of most food webs and underpin the functioning of all major ecosystems. Plants release the oxygen we breath. They convert solar energy into chemical energy, providing us with food, fibres, renewable energy sources, and raw materials for many industries. Plants do not carry out these processes in isolation. They interact with other organisms and the physical and chemical environment, communicate and actively adjust to their circumstances. How do they do these things and how can we profit from understanding them? When you have graduated from the Master’s Program in Plant Biology you will have the answers to these big questions, and more, such as: How one plant cell develops into a complicated organism and how plant cells, tissues and organs communicate with each other How plants avoid, tolerate or defend themselves from external stress factors such as diseases, drought and excessive solar radiation How plants sense their environment and communicate with each other and with other organisms How plants, interacting with microbes, fungi and animals, maintain ecosystems and thus life How the genotypic, functional and morphological differences between plants allow them to thrive in vastly different habitats You will also be able to: Understand how research in plant biology and biotechnology can contribute to plant breeding and production Plan, coordinate and execute high-quality basic and applied scientific research Have a good command of the scientific method and critically...
