About

In this Biomolecular Sciences - Molecular Cell Biology programme from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam you'll focus on the fundamentals of molecular and cellular processes

Overview

How to provide safe, stable food and how to produce crops in a stable way? How to develop treatments for age-related diseases or infections? How to find solutions to emerging problems, such as antibiotic resistance and nitrogen fixation in our soils? These are all demanding challenges that modern society faces. And it’s our priority to find solutions.

Real-world experience is an important part of this programme. In this Biomolecular Sciences - Molecular Cell Biology programme from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam you’ll take a six-month lab-based internship, which you can carry out at VU Amsterdam, off campus or even abroad in your second year. In addition to the internship, you’ll complete a bioinformatics project, comprising analyses and computer-based work.

And finally, you’ll have the chance to supplement your coursework with selected capstone projects, which aim to provide you with in-depth knowledge and discussion of various research topics. While these projects are optional, they’re a great opportunity to discover the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject as well as completing assignments. Some current capstone topics include molecular biotechnology and epigenetics.

Start working

Alternatively, you could use your skills and expertise in life sciences to work as a specialist in a life sciences or pharmacology company or organisation. You could become a medical product specialist, junior technical scientist, IT specialist and data scientist, or junior researcher at pharmaceutical companies and biotechnology startups.
