Pre-Master's programme

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.
