Master's Program in Bioinformatics, St. Petersburg Academic University (formerly AFTU RAS)

    The widespread transition to the Bologna system gives students the opportunity to change their university after receiving a bachelor's degree. However, few students think about this. In many universities, the master's program is very "sparse": there are many non-core courses (philosophy, cultural studies, etc.), but very few are specialized, and in order to pass them, you just need to appear on the exam / test.

    Those who still retain the desire to study, and are also interested in bioinformatics and have an education in mathematics and / or computer science, the Department of Mathematical and Information Technologies of the Academic University is inviting to a new master's program in bioinformatics in St. Petersburg.
