Study programme of pre-Master's Medical Biology

There are various ways to do a pre-Master's in Medical Biology. Firstly, your pre-Master's curriculum depends on the specialisation that you intend to choose in the Master’s programme. You can find the programmes for each specialisation below. Secondly, the content and length of your programme may depend on your previous education. Alternative routes are also possible. Finishing a pre-Master's programme grants direct access to the Master’s programme.

Hbo minor

As a hbo student of a comparable programme at a Dutch University of Applied Sciences, you can follow a minor programme of 30 EC. In your 3rd or 4rd year, you follow courses from the Biology Bachelor's programme. It is possible to take a hbo minor with a general orientation or focus on a specific topic. You can follow the minor in P1 and P2 or P3 and P4. More information about the hbo minors can be found on the Kies op Maat website.


Are you interested in following a pre-Master’s programme or a hbo minor in Medical Biology and do you have any questions about it, please contact the programme.
