Detailed description of the programme
Immunology is a dynamically evolving field integrating knowledge of molecular and cell biology, physiology, histology and functional morphology (in the context of evolution and ontogenesis) relevant to the immune system (or host-pathogen interaction). Topics such as transplantation, allergies, immune deficiencies, autoimmunity, immunosuppression, immunotherapy, or anti-tumour immunity are typical areas of interest for immunologists. Immunology covers all levels of biological knowledge from molecules (cytokines, immunoglobulins, receptors, signalling molecules), through cells (a whole constellation of immunocompetent cells), whole organisms (there are transgenic animal models are often used) as well as communities (frequencies of different alleles of genes regulating the immune response, evolution of immune mechanisms). A separate emancipated part of immunology is clinical immunology focused on human as a model organism. All above mentioned topics and concept are covered in the study programme Immunology by the variety of lectures and practicals, including the topics of the diploma thesis.
Bachelor degree (or equivalent) in biology or medicine.
Proficiency in English.
Subject of admissions examination and additional information
The two-round exam on the basis of the annexes submitted (first round) and in form of an oral interview from immunology (second round).
The exam is aimed at testing applicant’s general knowledge of the field. The exam includes a discussion about the topic of the applicant’s bachelor thesis and a discussion about a topic for a master thesis.
Examination is assessed with a maximum of 100 points.
During the admission examination, the applicant will present a transcript of the courses completed during previous study.
The admission exam is held in English.
A common study plan (seminars, diploma thesis, obligatory courses) is personalised into an individual study plan for each student (lectures, practicals) based on the particullar focus of the student/diploma thesis topic.
Broad field of biomedicine - research, clinics or applications.
