What will you learn

In the Molecular Life Sciences programme you study biological and biomedical processes from a molecular perspective, and you learn about important molecular processes in which cells work together to form a multicellular organism (human, animal or plant). Of course, you will also need to study the relevant mathematical and physical concepts needed to understand molecular processes. That's why especially in the first year, you will follow challenging courses in physics and mathematics. Moreover, you will be studying the differences between healthy and diseased cells. You will get acquainted with these topics during lectures and seminars and perform hands-on experiments in the lab.

Future career opportunities

Molecular Life Sciences graduates from Radboud University end up in a wide range of jobs. Ten years after starting their careers those who do not have PhDs mainly work as managers in a technological environment. Graduates with PhDs often become specialists with managerial roles. They continue with research in research departments at Radboud University or at other universities at home or abroad.
