During the Master's degree programme in Biomedical Sciences you will be trained to find answers to these questions. The programme is strongly oriented towards the scientific background of health, disease and preclinical research. You will encounter an interdisciplinary environment of basic scientific research at the faculty of science and engineering and the more medical oriented environment of the university medical centre.

If you have a Bachelor's degree in a relevant biomedical area you can apply for our two-year programme and excel your career as biomedical researcher or biomedical specialist. We offer tracks related to biology of cancer and immune system, biology of food and nutrition, biology of ageing, and neuroscience. In addition, we offer the unique option to create a custom made biomedical programme that meets your ambitions. Examples are programmes dedicated to virology, (epi)genetics, regenerative medicine, big data management, computational biology and many other areas on which the University of Groningen has a world-wide leading position.

For those who have the ambition to go into industry, policy making, become a consultant, or pursue a biomedical position in any other field NOT related to research, we also offer the Science, Business and Policy (SBP) track. Both the research programmes and the SBP track are tailored to align ambitions and career perspectives of the individual student and are designed under supervision of an experienced (associate) professor.

An unique aspect of the research programme is that up to 75% of the programme can be spent on independent research projects in which you join a research-group to experience science according to the principle of 'learning by doing', under the guidance of a researcher. You will be embedded in a research group and fully experience what it takes to be a researcher. For those that have the aspiration to become an industrial researcher, there is also an option to do a research-project within a company.

In addition to offering research-projects we provide a variety of courses to learn about microbiota, computational biology, big data management etc… and any other novel area in the emerging field of biomedical sciences. Apply to our degree programme if you are looking for a dynamic and unique Master's degree with great career perspectives.

Inés Paniagua Cabana
Passionate about the molecular genetics of ageing

After completing my Bachelor's degree in Biotechnology at the University of León in Spain, I decided that I wanted to pursue a research focused career. Undeniably, there was a particular reason that brought me to Groningen: the opportunity to join a specialized master's programme focused on the molecular genetics of ageing, the topic that I am most passionate about.

The BMS program allows students to shape their own programme to best suit their own personal goals; a characteristic that is very appealing to many students...
Michael Chang. Taking into account that I’ve become really involved with the project and the fact that there aren't any defined working hours, has made it so that the research project has taken up a lot of my free time lately. Nevertheless, one hobby that has remained constant since I came to Groningen has been singing in a jazz band called “Quiet Room”. Becoming a member of this group not only has been unbelievably rewarding and fun, it has also enhanced my sense of community and creativity!
