Course Description:

Studying Biology starts with a fascination for life. Nowadays, global concerns about how living organisms and the environment affect each other are issues of the modern society we live in. How humans, animals and plants adapt to their environment is the central question in Nijmegen's Master's of Biology. The mechanisms that lie underneath this adaptation are studied on a large scale, ranging from the smallest living entities, such as molecules, cells and pollen until larger entities such as ecosystems, river courses and entire populations.

Rich programme
The MSc programme not only covers a multitude of organisms and places interactions between them into context, it also integrates all levels of organisation from the molecule and the cell up to ecosystems and the landscape. This combination of experience results in a rich and coherent MSc. programme of Master's courses and exciting internships with state-of-the-art research. It prepares you for a career in science, both fundamental and applied, but also provides the necessary knowledge for innovative evidence-based applications in nature and water management.

Personal tutor
This programme offers you many opportunities to follow your own interests under the guidance of a personal tutor. In close collaboration with the academic hospital UMCN St. Radboud and several research institutes in Nijmegen (Institute for Water and Wetlands Research, Nijmegen Centre for Molecular Life Sciences, Donders Institute) Radboud University offers you a multitude of research fields to choose from which allows you to specialise in a field of personal interest.
