About this program

MSc in Biology

From Lab to Field a Critical, Collaborative and Hands-on Exporation of Life

The Master’s Program in Biology will strengthen your analytical skills and challenge and develop both your critical and creative way of thinking. Enhancing the fundamental biological knowledge gained in your bachelor’s degree, you will experience many combinations of theory, observation, and experimental research during the Master’s Program, which consists of laboratory work, field excursions, lectures, and seminars.

Admission requirements

Students must have a bachelor of science degree with subject components in biology equalling 60 ECTS credits, as well as basic subject components in mathematics, chemistry, and statistics. Other qualifications can also provide admission to the Master’s Program, provided the university assesses that their level, extent, and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above.

Selection Criteria

As the Master’s Program admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the Program. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Relevant courses include modules from the natural sciences including life sciences, mathematics, chemistry, and statistics.
