Safety Assessment of Xenobiotics and Biotechnological Products
To be admitted to a 2nd course/level degree course, a 1st level degree or a suitable equivalent foreign qualification is required (see also the "Admission criteria" section).
Access to the Master in "Safety Assessment of Xenobiotics and Biotechnological Products" (SAXBi) is open to:
- graduates with Italian degree (ex. DM 270/04 or equivalent ex. DM 509/99) in the areas L2 or L29;
- graduates from areas other than the above listed, provided they have earned the following credits:
· at least 9 credits (ECTS) in disciplines of CHIM/01, CHIM/03 or CHIM/06 (analytical chemistry; general and inorganic chemistry; organic chemistry);
· at least 5 credits in disciplines BIO/09 (physiology);
· at least 12 credits in disciplines BIO/10, BIO/11 or BIO/13 (biochemistry; molecular biology; applied biology);
· at least 6 credits in disciplines BIO/14 (pharmacology/toxicology);
Students with foreign qualification recognised as equivalent may access to the Master in SAXBi if they can demonstrate background knowledge and skills in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, toxicology and physiology, equivalent to those listed above. A committee of teachers appointed by the Board of Faculty will check the presence of these requirements.

The interview, done remotely via electronic devices if necessary, is aimed at verifying the above mentioned skills and the knowledge of the English Language equivalent to B2 level.
Students who have not yet graduated but who expect to graduate by December 2020 can also apply for admission to the Master in SAXBi.
Interviews of applicants will be held according to a calendar proposed individually to each applicant.
The committee evaluates the candidate on a 100-point scale:
-up to 25/100 will be given for the graduation mark;
-up to 25/100 for the curriculum (free courses, others ) -up to 50/100 for the interview
The minimum requirement for admission is 60/100.
Recommended to the course, mandatory to the labs.
