MSc Gemeenschappelijk gedeelte

»  Planning opleiding gemeenschappelijk gedeelte

Common Part

RO-1: In consultation and agreement with your study advisor choose for RO1A or RO-1B
- If you want to keep all options open after your MSc Biology, you should choose RO-1A .
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.
- Students who want to become a PhD-student may choose RO1B.
RO-2: EZO-32303 should be followed if you want to obtain certification to work with laboratory animals.
RO-3: this is an optional course, not specifically related to any of the specializations.
RO-4: these data science courses are optional, they are not specifically related to any of the specializations.
