Programme of B3

The specialisation phase of the Bachelor’s in Molecular Life Sciences continues in the third year. Here too, the selection of courses have been divided into priority courses and limited choice electives. Don't forget to take Philosophy and the Writing course at some point. You also continue to follow the MW-Colloquium series for Academic Skills.
The first semester of the third year is designated as the Faculty’s minor and exchange semester. The education minor is scheduled in this semester. See the separate minor prospectus for a more detailed description.

The course MED-MIN016 Translational Neuroscience is an FNWI-MED interfaculty course of 12 EC during the first semester. Registration for this course is in April of your second year. An information meeting will be announced in time.

For the Molecular Life Sciences degree programme a minimum of 75% of the differentiation phase must consist of priority courses (P). See also this table.
Again courses are scheduled on Mon-Tue, Wed or Thu-Fri. Courses (and their exams) in each of these time slots may overlap, you have to choose one.

Some courses have a limit to the number of participants.
