As of September 2017, the current Biology specialisations will be reorganised into the following four (more discipline-oriented) specialisations:
Students starting per February 2017 should enroll still in the current specialisations and will follow the full two year program as presented on this website and in the e prospectus.
This combination of science and business will train you as a researcher in Biology and in addition prepare you for going into industry and business.
In close co-operation with senior research staff, you will do your own research project in Biology. Theoretical courses will provide you with the knowledge on the forefront of science. Courses and a research project can be chosen from the master specialisations Animal Biology and Health, Plant Sciences and Natural Products, Microbial Biotechnology and Health and Evolution Biodiversity and Conservation. In a network- and case-based programme on management, business and entrepreneurship you will learn about running science-driven companies and exploiting business opportunities created by research. Acquired knowledge and skills will be applied and further enhanced in a company internship or business assignment.
