Human Biology, M.Sc. in Netherlands

Radboud University

Study in:Netherlands
Deadline: 1 Apr 2019


This wouldn’t be possible within the walls of the Faculty of Science. That’s why there’s an extensive collaboration between the Faculty of Science and university medical centers in the field of Human Biology. You’ll get the best of both worlds: a thorough background in for example molecular oncology, human genetics, physiology and metabolism as well as a clinical view on diseases. This is an excellent background for a medical researcher or a job at the interface of science and society, such as a consultant, policy officer or communications advisor in the area of food or health.

Program Structure

Courses include:

  • Transport and Metabolomics
  • Molecular Therapy
  • Translational Genomics
  • Trends in Stem Cell Biology
  • Advanced Adaptation Physiology
  • Advanced Endocrinology
  • Apoptosis
  • Behavioral Neuroscience
  • Cellular Imaging in Four Dimensions
  • Computation for Biologists

Academic Requirements

A completed Bachelor’s degree

An international degree has to be equivalent to a Dutch university diploma. The Examination Board will determine if an international student has the required knowledge to be admitted, and if the student is required to follow specific courses from the Bachelor’s program to eliminate possible deficiencies. Entering the Master’s specialisation in Human Biology requires a Bachelor’s degree in:

  • Medical Biology
  • Molecular Life Sciences
  • Biomedical Sciences
  • Biology, with a minor in Medical Biology, Neurobiology or Medicine
  • …or equivalent


RSP offers approximately 30 talented prospective non-EEA students the opportunity to receive a scholarship, which consists of a partial tuition waiver.
