Objectives

The Master’s programme Life Sciences and Health - International Track Infectiology: Biology of infectious diseases is a 2-year degree for English-speaking students, fully hosted at the University of Health Sciences in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
The aim of the Master’s programme is to provide a solid and broad-based foundation in prominent areas in Life Sciences and Health, as well as a high level of skills in infectiology. The pedagogical team includes specialists from reputable international universities and research institutes. Coupled with an intensive internship period in top-level research labs (Institut Pasteur, Institut Pasteur in Cambodia, Université Paris-Saclay, University of Health Sciences, etc…), students will receive both theoretical and practical experience in Infectiology.

Students will need to validate 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) during each of the two academic years to complete the Master’s programme.
For students who do not hold a French Bachelor’s degree (licence), a free online refresher course is offered prior to selection.

Course Prerequisites

Bachelor's degree in Life Sciences or equivalent. For students who do not hold a Bachelor's degree issued by a French university, an online refresher course (free of charge) may be offered before selection.

Career prospects

This programme opens the way to fundamental and applied research positions in public or private institutions, at engineer or researcher level, after completion of a PhD. This programme is recommended to clinicians who wish to acquire a knowledge base in the biology of infectious diseases.
