The curriculum of the master's program is based on topic-related modules, including lectures, seminars and practical courses, with a strong emphasis on learning in the context of ongoing research projects. Modules can be individually composed according to the student’s goals and interests, either aiming toward exposure to a wide variety of fields, or focussing in depth on a particular subject. After completing one of the master's programs, a direct transition to doctoral research is possible.
See the Research section of the Faculty of Biology on the website for information on current fields of research.
