Do you want work at the intersection of human biology and molecular biology? Are you interested in the interventions and technologies that can impact (public) health?
Then this is the Master's programme for you. Your Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences enables you to choose from a variety of specialisations that focus on the biology of human health and disease. In your second year, you can decide whether to pursue a research career, or put your knowledge to work more directly in society.
The Biomedical Sciences programme is open to both Dutch and International Students. The Faculty's Admission Board will decide upon your admission after having evaluated your complete online application.
In order to gain admission to the Biomedical Sciences Master's programme, you will need to have at least a Bachelor's of Science degree from an accredited research university including at least three full years of academic study amounting to a minimum of 180 ECTS or equivalent. We do not require a GRE or GMAT test score. A Bachelor degree obtained at an applied university or higher vocational education (HBO in Dutch) in most cases does not grant direct access to the programme (only exceptionally high ranking students stand a chance of admission).
