A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.
In regards to the study of biological & life sciences, students may focus on one aspect of natural science or study how they work together, such as the environment and human health or biology and geology.
The formal higher education system of Finland is the 7-3-2-2 pattern. The university takes two years in vocational or technical education and finally two-year pre-tertiary education. Finland also has several public as well as private universities that have enabled accessibility of higher education to students.

The Master’s Program in Biorefineries is delivered as flexible distance learning independent of place or time. It is well suited for people already in the working world in Finland or abroad, aiming for professional development and the upgrading of qualifications. This program is a practical solution to practical lifelong learning. [+]
The sustainable production of energy, food, chemicals, and materials is a major challenge today and for the future generations. The production has until now been based on fossil raw materials but this has, in turn, caused very serious environmental challenges. The use of renewable raw materials where it is technically possible and economically feasible is one of the corner technologies for mitigating climate change and saving scarce natural resources.
Biorefineries cover a wide range of technologies and materials, and this program examines these issues with an open mind and with a wide scope on not only technologies but also on the opportunities they offer in terms of new competencies, solutions, and critical assessments. In this master’s program, you will specialize in biorefining and related industries or e.g. in the circular economy.... [-]
