For students requesting access coming from the Master’s in INDUSTRIAL AND AGRI-FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY at the University of Almería (professional orientation), and from different university Master's degrees, there are established training supplements for admission based on the degree, postgraduate training and research training of the students (determined by their curriculum) and based on the specific requirements of the research itineraries and research lines that constitute the PhD Program’s research period.
The obligation for students to pass one or more specific subjects contained preferably in the training period of the PhD Program (the Master’s in INDUSTRIAL AND AGRI-FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY at UAL) will be considered, based on each applicant’s access profile. Six access profiles are established, with the supplements to be taken in each case:
Official Master's Degree in INDUSTRIAL AND AGRI-FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY (Research Orientation).No supplements (direct access).
Official Master's Degree in INDUSTRIAL AND AGRI-FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY (Professional Orientation). With supplements - 15 ECTS
Official Master’s in disciplines related to INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIOPROCESSES (including research training).With supplements (6-15 ECTS).
Minimum 3 ECTS- maximum 9 ECTS from the Compulsory Itinerary Module I:
- 70982201. Bioseparations (6 ECTS).
- 70982202. Design and implementation of Bioprocesses (6 ECTS).

Official Master’s in disciplines related to INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIOPROCESSES. (not including Research Training). With Supplements.
These are the same as the previous requirement (6-15 ECTS) + 15 ECTS of the Master's Final Project initiation to research.
Official Master’s in disciplines related to FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY. Including research training (6-15 ECTS). Minimum 3 ECTS - maximum 9 ECTS from Compulsory Itinerary Module II:

- 70982209. Biotechnology of By-products and Residues (3 ECTS).
- 70982210. Seed Technology and DNA Markers (3 ECTS).
- 70982211. GMOs and Transgenic Foods (3 ECTS).
- 70982212. Nutrition and Digestive Modeling (3 ECTS).
Official Master’s in disciplines related to FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY not including research training. . With supplements. The same as the previous requirement (6-15 E ECTS) + 15 ECTS of the Master's Final Project initiation to research.
The PhD Program’s Academic Committee will be in charge of specifying the training supplements for each student according to the specifications given in the previous sections.
The Academic Committee may recognize or validate, in a reasoned way, the training supplements planned based on the access profile and the training accredited to the student.
These training supplements should preferably be completed by the student during the first course following enrolment in the research period (The Academic Supervision of the Doctoral Thesis) and, in any case, before the end of studies.
Likewise, if it is not possible to study the subjects proposed within the Master’s in INDUSTRIAL AND AGRI-FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY currently taught at the UAL because of academic limitations, the Academic Committee can design and propose a training period that grants similar or equivalent competencies based on the student’s accredited training and the specific requirements of the selected itinerary and the research line, using the existing training offer at the UAL as a basis.
