Bachelor

Biomedical Sciences

Do you know what you should eat before a soccer match, and more importantly, why you should eat it? Would you like to know why one cell is susceptible to a disease and another one isn't? The bachelor’s programme Biomedical Sciences completely revolves around sickness and health. Whether you choose to specialise in the molecular processes in a cancer cell, or would like to know more about exercise programmes for people with obesity; the programme offers a solid foundation for a successful future. You could - for example - become a researcher at a pharmaceutical company that develops new medication, or a physiologist at a university. Read more >

  • Initially, I didn't meet the subject requirements for the programme, having not had physics in highschool. So I took a two-month long physics intensive course in Utrecht.

  • The UK universities offer English-taught programmes, but mainly to UK students. In my classroom we have students from all parts of the world
