Programme of Neuroscience
Please note: This specialisation is only available to students who started before Aug 2019. Students who want to follow this specialisation after Aug 2019 will have to register via the master's programme in Medical Biology.
Students of MLS who started before Aug 2019:
For the Master of Science in Molecular Life Sciences the complete 120 EC programme is given below. Please note that eventually your programme has to be approved by the examination board.
Students in the master MLS should graduate August 31 2023 at the latest. Make sure to consult your student advisor.
A. A specialisation related component comprising:
- compulsory specialisation courses for all Neuroscience specialisations: 15 EC*
- Mandatory courses for Molecular Life Sciences: 9 EC
- a specialisation related research internship chosen from the list 'departments for internships': 36 EC
- NWI-MOL501A practical work, report (master thesis), and presentation: 36 EC
B. A second research internship: 44 EC
- NWI-MOL502A Practical work, report, and presentation: 35 EC
- NWI-MOL602 Literature thesis: 6 EC
- An elective course with molecular component: 3 EC
This second internship can be freely chosen from the list 'departments for internships' or may be done outside the university (company, research institute or abroad). Your internship should be approved by the internship coordinator before the start of the internship. If approved by the Internship coordinator, both internships may be taken elsewhere. For external internships, you should Always have a supervisor from one of the approved departments of Radboud University as well as a supervisor at the institute you are visiting. Supervision of both internships must be provided by two different departments, unless the second internship is taken at another university or institute;
C. NWI-MOL412 Career orientation (1 EC)
D. Scientific master courses: 6 EC
This part needs approval from the examination board. All courses offered by the Faculty of Science will be approved.
E. Free electives: 6 EC
F. Philosophy course: 3 EC
*One 3 EC course of the 15 EC compulsory courses may be interchanged with a course from another research specialisation available for Molecular Life Science's students.
