The aim of the Master Course is to present provision of training program in risk assessment based on common European and international criteria, easily adoptable by institutions across Europe and focusing on Risk Assessment methodology and procedure. The project focuses on understanding the profile and training requirements of risk assessors in order to design a degree covering a range of disciplines in risk assessment and providing a model to establish a recognition of risk assessors in accordance to a well-defined and properly acknowledged training standard adopted in 2015 in all European Countries by the Committee for Standardization CEN member states (CEN TC/416).
The Master level "Safety assessment of xenobiotics and biotechnological products (SAXBi)" is equivalent to the second-level higher education award that refers to the second cycle in the Qualifications Framework of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), designed by the Bologna Accords (1999) which refers to level 7 of the European Union's European Qualifications Framework. The degree requires 120 European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), and the expected learning outcomes will meet those specific to the second Dublin descriptor.
The professional profiles generated will be employed by:
- public administration for the control, implementation and management of human health and environmental protection;
- industry Associations (Food, Cosmetics, Pharma, Chemicals);
- pharma Companies in the sector of drug development;
- biotech Companies;
- contract Research Organization for the drug toxicity testing;
- food and Chemical Companies in Quality Control divisions;
- bioremediation Companies;
- innovative energy plants;
- public and Private Companies for the implementation and application of appropriate RA procedures;
- private sectors as consultants for RA of chemicals, food contaminants, water and air pollutants;
- public and Private Research Institutions;
- universities and secondary schools.…
Thanks to mobility programs such as Erasmus +, Erasmus Placement, and Erasmus Mundus, the Master Course in SAXBi offers its students the opportunity to spend periods of training abroad. The Erasmus Placement Program also offers the opportunity to play an internship abroad at companies, universities or other organizations. Universities and Institutions partners involved in these programs offer the possibility to engage in a wide range of areas. In the mobility period, the student can:
- continue their studies by attending courses and the respective exams;
- carry out the thesis.
Each student is followed by a tutor identified within the Course. to page lists all the information related to the fields of study and training opportunities offered by the host locations. Procedure for the recognition of study periods abroad: each student must propose a Learning Agreement regarding training activities that lead to the recognition of a number of credits adequate to the period spent abroad, namely:
- 30 credits for an academic semester:
- 20 credits for an academic quarter.
The period of study abroad will be recognized as valid after obtaining at least 70% of the credits specified in the learning agreement, while the activity of the thesis or internship will be valid only after acquisition of all credits. For students who have accomplished satisfactorily the training program, there are appropriate incentives, proposed by the teacher in charge, will be paid by the Faculty in the diploma achievement session. It provides additional points to the degree mark varying from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 3 points depending on the duration of the study period, the amount of credits attained, and the overall results obtained by the student
Recommended to the course, mandatory to the labs.

Students who are working
If the student is enrolled in working activities in laboratories in which techniques that are subject of the teaching laboratories are used, he/she is entitled of a partial/total exemption from laboratory attendance.
To take advantage of such concession, the student has to present to the Secretariat of the Teaching Committee copy of the job contract and timetable at the beginning of each academic year.
Alternatively, the students who are working are entitled to enrol as part-time students (see below).

Part-time students:

In agreement with the University of Milan rules, students who:
- are working with a not occasional documented commitment (subordinate, autonomous or professional) of at least 6 months/year;
- are taking care of not self-sufficient relatives with a not-occasional commitment;
- have health problems or disabilities, which are hampering the normal study progression;
- are taking care of their own children or are pregnant;
- are enrolled in documented sport or artistic activities at national or international level

can be enrolled as part-time students.
