INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMA-COURSE IN BIOTECHNOLOGY
at the University of Helsinki


The Institute of Biotechnology and Lahti's Research and Training Centre
of the University of Helsinki, Finland are organizing an International
Course in Biotechnology for foreign students. The course will last for 9
months (October 1,1991-June 30, 1992) and result in a Diploma in
Biotechnology. The Diploma-Course is a joint program with an enforced
licenciate course for Finnish students with M.Sc degree.

The Diploma-course consists of an intensive basic training period with
lectures and laboratory work (1.10.-20.12. 1991) and a practising period
(January 2-June 30,1992) in selected research groups in Helsinki. The
practising period also includes lecture courses.
