Elective module Laboratory Animal Science

The course Laboratory Animal Science may be done as an elective course. The programme of the course on laboratory animal science comprises the requirements cited in article 9 of the Wet op de Dierproeven (Experiments on Animals Act) and the Function B requirements as defined in the European Directive 2010/63EU. The course has also been accredited by FELASA. The certificate of completion of the course together with an academic degree in biomedical science will lead to a legal recognition to design animal experiments in the Netherlands. The FELASA accreditation certificate also provides recognition in other EU countries.

Entrance requirements

Since an official certificate can be obtained when doing this course, the admission requirements for this course are very strict, as described on the website.

Students with a BSc in (Medical) Biology, Medicine or Biomedical Sciences from Radboud University Nijmegen

Students with a BSc degree in (Medical) Biology, Medicine or Biomedical Sciences from the Radboud University automatically meet the entrance requirements and do not need to take the admission test.

Students with other BSc degrees

All students with other BSc degrees are obliged to take a knowledge test on anatomy/zoology and physiology as an admission requirement for the LAS course. Without a positive test result, participants will not receive their certificates even if they pass the LAS exam. Details can be requested at courseinlas.cdl@radboudumc.nl.
