A Master of Science is a graduate degree that can be obtained by students who have first completed a bachelor’s program in a similar field. An MSc typically takes about two years of full-time study to earn.
Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a Scandinavian unitary constitutional monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Jan Mayen, the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard and the subantarctic Bouvet Island. Higher education in Norway is offered by a range of seven universities.

MSc in Optometry and Visual Science
The program will give people with a BSc in optometry specialist competency in clinical optometry and visual science. You can choose to specialize in general practice optometry or in orthoptics and paediatric optometry. You can choose to study full time or part time. This is optometry and visual science.
The MSc program is designed with an optometrist’s existing and expected challenges in the eye and visual health in mind. There will be a requirement for optometrists with special competencies in diagnosing and management of visual problems in children. With an increasing proportion of elderly within the population, there will also be greater needs for optometrists to follow up ocular and visual anomalies in adults and the elderly, and detect ocular pathology.

The Master's program in Biomedicine will shed light on contemporary problems and methods in biomedicine. The students will be trained in experimental work as well as written and oral presentations of independents scientific papers.
During the first semester, you are required to attend a laboratory course (MBI-3010), which includes relevant techniques for biomedical research. You will be trained in cell culturing, detection and expression of DNA, RNA and proteins, imaging, electron microscopy, histological analysis and immunohistochemistry. You will also be trained in health and safety procedures in laboratories. During the second semester you will start specializing in various areas of biomedicine. You also have the option to get an early start on your Master's thesis, and take the last 10 ECTS of specialization electives in the third semester. In the second year, you will mainly focus on your individual research project, and on the writing of your Master's thesis. Your project will be based on research performed by the Department of Medical Biology (IMB), and you will participate in one of these projects. The Master's thesis is expected to be an independent body of scientific work performed and presented by each student. The result of the work must be submitted as a written thesis and, as part of your examination, you will give a presentation of your thesis followed by an oral examination. The thesis, presentation and oral examination together counts as the final exam, and will be graded as a whole. As a student on the Master's degree program...
