Posted on 11.01.2024

If you are passionate about diabetes and research, are a student in the Biomedical Laboratory Science (BLS) Programme and wish for extra immersion and challenges within the subject of diabetes, you can apply for admission to University College Copenhagen (KP)‘s brand new talent programme: Copenhagen Honours College DIABETES.

The programme will be launched in the spring semester of 2024 and has been developed and made possible as a collaboration between four unique partners:

With this programme, selected BLS students are given the opportunity to challenge their competencies through increased knowledge within laboratory and research, and by gaining greater insight in patients with a chronic disease like diabetes. As graduates they will become professional ambassadors by taking part in technological developments and developing efficient processes to run our healthcare system using the latest technology and insight.

Students within the honours programme will get the opportunity to develop their unique potential and network with committed and dedicated colleagues in inspiring professional and research environments nationally at Steno, DDEA and KP, as well as internationally at Baker.
