Biology at the University of Groningen

Would you like a tailor-made programme in Biology? Specialize in mathematical modelling and computational biology to be applied in various biology research domains?
Or would you like to design your programme at the crossroad of different biology domains?

 

If so, Biology in Groningen is the master's degree programme for you.
Students with a broad interest in biology can design a tailor-made programme under the guidance of a staff member who will coach the student throughout his or her master's programme.
Students may specialize either in one discipline or combine disciplines such as Ecology & Evolution, Biomedical Sciences or Biomolecular Sciences. Those who are interested to develop, apply and interpret mathematical modelling in life sciences can follow a newly developed track.


Track: Modelling in the Life Sciences 
In this programme you will learn how mathematical concepts and methods can be used to develop and interpret dynamic models in a broad spectrum of life sciences. The knowledge can be applied to address research questions in biological disciplines like Ecology and Evolution, Molecular and cellular Biology and Biomedical Sciences.

 

Track: Research 
This track prepares for a career in academia or other research institutes. You will go through the whole process of conducting science in the field or the laboratory, developing skills such as exploring scientific literature, formulating hypotheses, designing and performing experiments, and presenting results. 

 

Track: Science, Business & Policy 
This track combines a six-month research training with a six-month internship related to the application of scientific insights in business, policy or administration.

Biology at the University of Groningen

The Research track prepares you for a career in academia or other research institutes. Within this track, you will focus on conducting research by actually doing it in research projects. You will go through the entire process of conducting science in the field or the laboratory, developing skills such as exploring scientific literature, formulating hypotheses, designing and performing experiments, and presenting results. In the master's programme Biology, you are allowed and stimulated to combine disciplines such as Ecology and Evolution, Biomolecular Sciences or Marine Biology. Please note that courses and research projects in the discipline of Biomedical Sciences are facing a strict capacity issue and therefore it is not possible to specialize in the Biomedical Sciences within the Biology Master's programme.
