If you are in the 12th grade and want to pursue a career in the health sciences, namely in the pharmaceutical field, the Integrated Master's Degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences (MICF) is the ideal option. The MICF lasts 5 years, during which transversal subjects in the areas of biological, chemical and drug sciences are covered, with a strong research component, essential for pharmaceutical activity.

However, if you prefer, at the end of the 3rd year you can apply for your degree in Basic Studies in Pharmaceutical Sciences and apply for a second cycle in a related area, either at FFUP or at another Faculty/University.

Completing the 5 years of the MICF, which includes a Professionalising Internship, you will face a variety of career paths:
