On the other hand, the university medical centre offers a more medical environment.

We offer a wide range of tracks: biology of cancer and immune system, biology and ageing and neuroscience. In addition, we allow students to customise the curriculum according to their ambitions. For example, our students have created programmes focusing on virology, (epi)genetics, regenerative medicine, big data management, computational biology and many other areas where the University of Groningen has a worldwide leading position.

For those who have the ambition of going into the industry, becoming a policy maker, having a career in consulting or pursuing a biomedical position in any other field not related to research, we also offer the Science, Business and Policy (SBP) track.
