General Information

Students with a broad interest in biology are able to design a tailormade programme under the supervision of a staffmember who will coach the student during the two-year Master’s degree programme. Because many exciting discoveries have been made using the multidisciplinary approach, students are encouraged to combine insights and techniques from different domains within the Biological sciences. A specialization combining two biology domains is Behavioural and Neurosciences. The focus of this specialization are the factors that affect behaviour in humans and animals. Internal factors such as the functioning of the brain and the excretion of hormones in the blood as well as external factors involving growth conditions are examples of study areas in this field.

Career Prospects

Graduates of the Master’s degree programme in Biology who have chosen a scientific career often start with a PhD or join a research and development team in a company or research institute. Students who have done a society-oriented project find jobs as Science Advisors at governmental organizations, research institutions or companies.


Requirements for admission to the Master’s programme in Biology include:

  • A Bachelor's degree in Biology. Students for the behavioural and Neurosciences path have to show that their Bachelor’s degree contains enough courses relevant to this field.
  • The Admissions Board will decide whether you can be admitted to the Master’s programme.
  • Sufficient English proficiency is required. Language requirements for international students include an IELTS test score of 6.5 or a TOEFL test score of 580 (paper-based), 237 (computer-based) or 92 (internet-based, iBT).
