Master Master of Science (M.Sc.), EU Regulatory Affairs - Das Studium


The pharmaceutical and medical device sectors are one of the most highly regulated in the world second only to the nuclear and aerospace industries. In order to keep abreast of current trends it is necessary for professionals working in those industries to be well acquainted with current and future trends and regulations. Regulatory Affairs is an emerging profession increasingly gaining in importance.

Participants will receive a thorough in depth training in all aspects of EU regulatory affairs covering both the pharmaceutical and medical device sectors. Due to the growing importance of regulatory affairs and the real deficit of higher education courses on this topic in the EU, this course is expected to fill an important gap in the pharmaceutical/medical device sector in Europe.
