Information for prospective students in the Master’s Biomedical Sciences regarding  COVID-19 measures

The Master’s Biomedical Sciences will adhere to the same requirements as before Covid-19 and therefore will not allow any students into the programme who have not yet completed their Bachelor’s degree. If you feel you have a very valid reason to be exempted from this requirement, please contact the fredie.devries [at] (Board of Examiners).

Regarding the deadlines

EEA Students:

  • 1 April 2023 - recommended deadline for all EEA students (earlier is better!)
  • 1 May 2023 - International EEA students who want help with housing 
  • 1 July 2023  - Final deadline for all other students 

Non-EEA students:

  • 31 January 2023 - Students who wish to apply the Radboud Encouragement Scholarship (RES) or the Radboud Scholarship Programma (RSP);
    Keep in mind that there is only one RSP available for the faculty of Medical Sciences. This means that ultimately, the chance of receiving a RES, is higher. More information about scholarships and tuition fees can be found here.
  • 1 April 2023 - Non-EEA students with private funding

Keep in mind: the deadline for pre-registration for the BMS courses in the first three course periods (Sept, Oct, Nov) is expected to be on July 10th 2023. Please make sure to apply well before this date ánd to complete your application for the BMS programme, so that it can be processed in time for you to join the pre-registration. After July 10th, you can only use the late registration, and we cannot guarantee that there will be enough spots available for you in the course(s) of your choice.

Furthermore, housing, visa, scholarships and other practical matters also need to be arranged on time. Radboud University realizes that it is not easy for you to arrange everything from your home country and we want to make your stay abroad as pleasant as possible. Therefore, the International Office of Radboud University provides pre-arrival services (housing, visa, orientation) for international students who are enrolling in an English Master's programme.

Regarding the application procedure

In addition to the prior education or the qualities of the candidate, one member of the admissions committee of the Board of Examiners will hold an individual interview (in English) with the candidate.  This interview assesses whether the background knowledge of the students conforms to the required content and level of the programme.

Admission to the programme is dependent on this interview and final overall judgement of the Board of Examiners of the master’s programme Biomedical Sciences.

If you are not sure about the requirements, you can do the Radboud Eligibility Check by clicking the button below. The Eligibility Check will give you an indication as to whether or not you are eligible for admission.


If you have questions concerning your eligibility, please contact the BMS admissions officers by sending an email to: admissions [at]
