Biology (MBI) / MSc

MSc Gemeenschappelijk gedeelte


Common Part

RO1: In consultation and agreement with your study advisor choose for one of the options under RO1. Students who want to become a PhD-student may choose RO1B. If you want to keep all options open after your MSc Biology, you should choose RO1A.
RO1A: YMC-60809 must be combined with YMC-60300. 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.
RO2: EZO-32303 should be followed if you want to obtain certification to work with laboratory animals.
RO3: this is an optional course, not specifically related to any of the specializations.
