Biomedical Sciences: Neurobiology at the UvA is a challenging Master's programme. It is positioned at the interface between biology, psychology and philosophy. Your Master’s diploma qualifies for excellent positions both in- and outside the academia, anywhere in the world.
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.
Neurobiology is a relative young field of study on the cutting edge of multiple disciplines such as biology, psychology, philosophy and computer science. The Master's programme Neurobiology is for those students who are fascinated by the functioning of the human brain.
There are four specifically designed tracks. All four of them are organised by UvA research groups specialised in exactly these topics, creating an atmosphere of research based education.
The cluster Neurobiology at the University is part of the Master's programme Biomedical Sciences. Consequently, the brain is approached from a biomedical point of view, from the molecule to the mind. The support of several university institutes such as the Swammerdam Institute of Life Sciences (SILS-CNS) and other neurobiological institutes like the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience (NIN) and the Amsterdam UMC guarantee excellent courses and internships.
Neurobiology is a cluster of the accredited degree programme Biomedical Sciences. After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences and the title Master of Science (MSc).
In 2018 the Master's programmes in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Amsterdam received a final rating of 'Good' in the reaccreditation concluded by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This rating means the programmes 'consistently surpass the standard quality level'.
