Programme of B3

Dear student,

We are working on solutions for hybrid education that will take place online and on campus. Therefore the instructional modes, number of exams, the form of the exams and/or assignments may change. You will be informed through Brightspace in case of changes. The course information in the Course guide provides an indication of what you can expect in the course.

In the case of not being able to attend one or more practical courses/lab days due to corona measures, the course coordinator will decide if the student is obligated to re-take the missed meeting and how this will take place.
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) and you should take your prospective Masters programme into account.
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.
