Biology (BBI) / BSc

BSc Common part


Common Part

Before starting with the BSc-thesis students must have completed at least 102 credits of CS and RO courses including all 60 credits of the B1
RO-1: Choose MAT-14803 Mathematics 1 if you did Math A at VWO; choose MAT-15303 Statistics 1 if you did Math B at VWO
RO-2:Choose 36 credits of optional courses. You can either choose a minor, a BSc Internship Biology or your own coherent set of optional courses. Students that want to orientate themselves on the job market can choose the BSc Internship Biology (YBI-70324) as part of their optional courses. Students should have completed their BSc thesis Biology prior to starting with their BSc Internship Biology.
