Language

The language of the PhD in Biotechnology is English.
 
One of the main objectives of the Biotechnology PHD programme is to prepare professionals able to communicate with peers, the academic community, companies and society in general. 
English is the lingua franca in the current world of international business and diplomacy in the West, and is becoming more and more important in other regions of the world. 
In the field of Biotechnology, English is also the common language used by the scientific community. The most important international peer-reviewed journals use English and the language at International events and research projects communication is also English. 
Therefore, students must be able to use English with proficiency in reading, publishing, communicating and discussing their scientific results.
