Career Prospects

If you successfully complete the programme, you will be in high demand. It is likely you'll already find a job before you graduate. And in that job, you will extensively use the skills you acquired during the MSc programme.

Choose to work in the field of bioinformatics and systems biology like 60% of our graduates or find a suitable job in closely related areas, such as biotechnology, data science, healthcare or finance. 

More than half of our students (60%) continue in scientific research as a Ph.D. student. Thanks to technological advances, such as next-generation sequencing and the development of personalised medicine, your career prospects will only improve as you develop.
