Application and Deadline

Online application may be submitted via the course website at: http://www.unige.ch/formcont/masdrugdevelopment

  • Candidates should send copies of relevant university degrees, a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, two reference letters and a written authorization from their employer by June, 15, 2016 to the MAS secretariat (DAS.clinicaltrials@hcuge.ch).
  • For individual modules, application should be sent at least one month prior to the beginning of the selected module. Priority will be given to candidates applying for the Master.
  • The MAS is entirely paperless and students are encouraged to bring their laptop during classes.

Important note

Candidates are warned that a significant amount of self-study is required to complete the MAS, and that they are expected to go through preparatory work before each module. Students should thus allow sufficient time to study at home, in addition to attending the classroom lectures.
