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. Download our full infopack
New curriculum since September 2017
The field of Biomedical Sciences has become more and more multi- and interdisciplinary. We have adapted our curriculum to this development; as one of our students you participate in several multidisciplinary courses, but you will also have the opportunity to develop your own profile in the field of biomedical sciences by choosing one of five specialisations.
