The two-year track General Biology in the Master’s programme Biological Sciences is designed for students who do not wish to restrict their focus to one subject in the field of biology. Your study may cover topics such as the molecular mechanisms of a virus or the population dynamics of African elephants.
This year, you won’t be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our online Open House is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home. Every study programme has an Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes, explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
Due to the Corona pandemic, in exceptional cases, the UvA will allow you to start your Master’s programme before having fully completed your Bachelor’s degree or pre-Master’s. Check the Application and Admission pages for more information.
The Master's programme Biological Sciences offers specialisations in 4 tracks. General Biology is one of them. The other tracks are:
This programme offers the freedom to combine courses of all biological masters of the University of Amsterdam and other universities in consultation with the examination committee. This gives you the opportunity to create your own specific study path.
