The two-year curriculum covers a variety of topics in different disciplines, including evolutionary ecology, modelling of biodiversity and ecosystem dynamics, data analysis and statistics, paleo-ecology, microbial ecology, genomics, spatial ecology and conservation.
The entry requirements and the application procedure for this Master’s track depend on whether you have completed your prior education in the Netherlands or abroad.

All tracks of the Master's programme Biological Sciences are offered as a full-time programme. Due to the nature of the study programme, it isn’t possible to study in part-time.
The application process and the deadline depend on whether you have completed your prior education in the Netherlands or abroad. We strongly recommend to start the application procedure at least a week before the deadline. Getting all your documents ready and going through the process will take several days.
