Students enrolled in the Master degree in Molecular Biology will be allowed to apply for a change of their Master degree to the Master degree in Experimental Molecular Biology which is also offered by the Department of Biological Sciences, by the second semester of their studies, which will be subject to approval by the CPS and the Departmental Council.
The postgraduate programmes of each department are supervised by a three-member Postgraduate Programmes Committee, chaired by a Postgraduate Programmes Coordinator. The Coordinator may the chairperson of the department or a member of the academic staff appointed by the chairperson. The other members of the committee are appointed by the Departmental Board.
