Worum geht's im Studium

It's all about a fascination for human life

Do you want to combine humane biology with molecular biology? Or do you want to learn about the other possibilities of biomedical sciences after a year of research? This master's programme will offer you just that! 

While pursuing a Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences you can opt to study a combination of different specializations. The research-oriented specializations will enable you to embark on a career in research. The societal specialization will equip you for a position as a policy officer. The communication specialization will enable you to work in public relations or scientific journalism, and the education specialization (only in Dutch) will enable you to teach at pre-university or higher vocational education level.

Are you interested in infectious diseases and do you want to gain a deeper understanding of how the immune system works? Then you can focus on both these specializations. Does your scientific interest lie in immunology and your professional ambition in policy-making? Then you can combine these two. You can tailor your programme according to your own desires and interests.

All specializations for the Master Biomedical Sciences:

  • Immunology
  • Infectious diseases
  • Neurobiology
  • International public Health
  • Science in society

Career prospects

Your job prospects are excellent with a Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences. Most of our graduates enter scientific research. If you take the Science in Society specialization, it is more likely that you will find work involving policy-making. Taking the Education specialization almost certainly means you will go into teaching. And the Communications specialization opens up opportunities as a scientific journalist, press officer or education officer.
