Common Part

RO-1: Choose at least 6 credits.
RO-2/RO-3:
Choose at least 12 credits from cluster RO-2 OR cluster RO-3.
If you select cluster RO-2, choose 1 course from RO-2A
If you select cluster RO-3, choose 1 course from RO-3A
RO-4: Choose at least 6 credits.
RO-5: Choose either RO-5A, RO-5B, RO—5C or RO-5D;
- If RO-5A is selected, choose YMC-60809 and choose 3 credits worth of Modular Skills Training courses (MOS)
- If RO-5C is selected, you will be asked to complete 23 credits before start
- IF RO-5D is selected, please, notice that you have to complete a thesis before start of YWU-60312.
RO-6: Choose in consultation with your study adviser in dependence of pre-education; students with limited life science background have to choose GEN-21306; students without programming skills have to choose INF-22306; students who did not follow SSB-20306 in their pre-education have to include SSB-20306.
RO-7: Choose 1 thesis.
RO-8: Choose 1 internship or an additional thesis of at least 24 credits at one to the chairs offering an internship as RO7.
