Study programme of pre-Master's Medical Biology

The content of the programmes consists of specific courses from our Bachelor's programme in Biology and depends on the specialisation that you intend to choose in the Master’s programme. The content and duration of this pre-Master’s is determined and constructed on an individual basis. 

Personalised programmes

We can offer you a personalised pre-Master's programme, depending on your current degree and where you have obtained it:

  • If your Bachelor's diploma is obtained outside of the Netherlands

International students with a Bachelor’s degree from a Research University in (a comparable field to) Medical Biology or a natural science-related programme that does not provide you with sufficient knowledge of Medical Biology, can follow a pre-Master's programme for international students. This programme is also suitable for students who have not obtained a Bachelor's degree in Medical Biology or in a related field, but who do have obtained a Bachelor's or Master's degree in another field of academic study.

The aim of this pre-Master's is to eliminate deficiencies and develop the skills that are needed for the Master's programme in Medical Biology. Finishing this pre-Master's programme grants direct access to the Master’s programme. At the end of the pre-Master's, you will receive a pre-Master's certificate and a formal grade list.

  • If your Bachelor's diploma is obtained from a Dutch Research University

If you have obtained a Bachelor's degree in similar field of study, but you do not quite meet the admission requirements for our Master's programme, you might be admitted to one of our pre-Master's programmes for Dutch University students. After finishing this programme, you will receive a pre-Master’s certificate and will be directly admitted to the Master's programme in Medical Biology.

  • If your Bachelor's diploma is obtained from a Dutch University of Applied Sciences (HBO)

This pre-Master's programme is for students with a Dutch Bachelor’s or Master's of Applied Sciences in a relevant field. After finishing this programme, you will receive a pre-Master’s certificate and will be directly admitted to the Master's programme in Medical Biology.

HBO Minor

We offer a minor programme of 30 EC to third or fourth year students of a comparable study programme at a Dutch University of Applied Sciences. The programme consists of Bachelor’s courses from the Biology programme at Radboud University and can be found at "Kies op Maat". It can be followed in the Autumn semester from September to January or the Spring semester from February to July. At the end of the programme, you’ll receive a formal grade list or ‘Transcript of Records’.
