The main objectives of the Master studies of “Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Products” are related to the formation of highly trained personnel for fine organic synthesis (designing and performing laboratory experiments, synthesis optimization, scientific data interpretation etc.) with emphasis on the study of chemicals related to pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. One should not ignore the fact that, among the industrial branches of chemistry, Pharmaceuticals or Cosmetics are spearhead industries, billions of euros/dollars being granted each year for research and production. Thus, our students are given, upon graduation of this Master program, two options: either fundamental research (hence the theoretical and practical laboratory training provided in the syllabus) or industry R&D, as illustrated by the versatility of the proposed curricula....

Duration: 1.5 Years (3 Semesters)
Qualification Awarded: Master of Science in Drug Regulatory Affairs
Level of Qualification: Master Degree (2nd Cycle)
Language of Instruction: English
Mode of Study: Distance Learning
Minimum ECTS Credits: 90
The programme is an international master’s program on the regulation of medicinal products, biological and biotechnological products as well as on the regulation of other health care products i.e medical devices and herbal medicinal products.
The program targets individuals involved in the regulatory and legislative areas of the pharmaceutical industry, as well as employees in healthcare and biotech companies or in regulatory bodies. Candidates will gain a comprehensive and detailed knowledge of the procedures related to the application, registration, and approval of drugs and biological and biotechnological products that will qualify them to specialize in the entire process of drug registration from the initial stages of discovery to final approval and to the post-marketing surveillance. Programme participants will thus be qualified to advise and involve professional groups in the development process surrounding the regulatory and statutory requirements governing drug registration, potentially shortening the length of time it takes for companies to obtain marketing approval and managing the drug on the international market. Also, the programme offers the opportunity for continuing professional development of persons already employed in this field at the junior level....
