Common Part

RO-0:Choose courses from RO-0:
- RO-0A: Choose this course after consultation with your study adviser.
- RO-0B: Choose a maximum of two courses if these or equivalent courses have not been part of your BSc-programme. It is not allowed to include both Gene Technology (MOB-20306) and Plant Biotechnology (GEN-20806) into your MPB-programme. 
RO-1: Choose one course.
RO-2: Choose in consultation and agreement with your study adviser either RO-2A or RO-2B:
- RO-2A focuses on consultancy and business. YMC-60300 is an 'umbrella' code. Instead, choose and register for 3 credits worth of modular skills (MOS) courses. For an overview of possible MOS courses please see under YMC-60300 in the study handbook.
- RO-2B focuses on research proposal writing and funding.
