Biological Sciences: General Biology (track)

Opslaan in favorieten

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.

UvA online Open House

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.

Is General Biology at the UvA the study for you?

It is, if you:

  1. have a solid background in biology;
  2. plan to work in areas where a broad knowledge of biology will be useful;
  3. want to learn to address issues of global interest;
  4. are looking specifically for much freedom to compile your own programme;
  5. want the advantages of a small-scale programme, where students and staff all know each other.

What does General Biology at the UvA have to offer me?

The Master’s track General Biology allows you to create your own specific study path within the field of biology. You are free to select your courses from the other tracks in the Biological Sciences Master's programme, related programmes at the University of Amsterdam or even other universities, provided the focus of your study is on Biology.

Tuition fees and costs

Paying the tuition fee is an important step in completing your enrolment. Other costs to keep in mind when planning your university budget include housing, living expenses, and learning materials such as books, stationary and a laptop.
