The Master's programme in Biology focuses on the biological workings of organisms, systems or the body. As a student in this programme you can choose from one of eight specialisations:
Conservation and Restoration Ecology
Water and Environment
Transnational Ecosystem-based Water Management
Science and Society
Science, Management and Innovation
More information on these specialisations can be found on the individual specalisation pages, or the Radboud website.
In some cases, when your education background does not grant you direct admission to the Master's in Biology programme at Radboud University , you can be admitted to a pre-Master's programme. A pre-Master's programme is especially designed to bridge the gap between your prior education and our Master's in Biology. The content and duration of these pre-Master’s are determined and constructed per individual student. The pre-Master’s programme in Biology is available in English.
