Are you interested in what causes disease and how we can prevent it? And are you curious about how diseases can be treated? Then the master's in Biomedical Sciences (MBS) might be exactly what you are looking for. Through a mix of theoretical courses, practical training sessions and internships, you’ll explore the relationship between human beings and their environment, from molecule, to gene, to cell and organ, to individual and to entire populations. You’ll learn how new scientific knowledge is obtained in basic and applied research areas, and how these insights can be used to benefit patients. Upon graduation you’ll be able to pursue a career as a researcher studying diseases and treatments in both academia and industry. Read more >

a video by student ambassador Raphael
All our master's programmes have their own student ambassador: someone who is presently doing the programme him/herself, and is glad to answer your questions. Either during an Open Day or via social media.
The student ambassador for the master's in Biomedical Sciences is Raphael.
He has a Facebook page and an Insta account, on which he shares his experiences about the programme, life in Maastricht, and much more. And you can contact him with your questions about the programme and about (student) life in Maastricht; he's happy to help you with your study choice, as previous student ambassadors helped him with his.
What is the master's in Biomedical Sciences all about? And why would you choose to study it at Maastricht University?
