Do you dream of working on the frontline of the ongoing battle for a better understanding of human health and diseases? Are you dedicated to applying this knowledge in order to improve prevention and treatment options? Then this master\'s programme is for you. During the course of two academic years you will be truly immersed in scientific biomedical research. By doing scientific research in a domestic or foreign laboratory, you will gain thorough know-how, strengthen your scientific skills and learn the newest scientific methods. All of these skills and accumulated knowledge will be applied in the most important part of the master\'s programme: your master\'s thesis.



A master in Biomedical Science has the expertise to contribute to translational research regarding current biomedical problems on a international academic level. You will have the know-how to develop, in a critical and creative manner, new insights regarding human health (you will bridge the gap between ‘pure’ sciences and the medical-clinical practice).
It is a master of 120 ECTS credits. It consists of general subjects, specialised biomedical subjects, a research internship and a master’s dissertation. In the second year of the master, you will have 18 credits to spend on elective courses. All these courses together form two learning trajectories aiming at: your growth as an independent researcher and enabling you to bridge the gap between scientifical knowledge and the medical-clinical practice.

Beroepsbeschrijving- en uitwegen

Many graduates go on to careers in consultancy, policy, sales and marketing, communication and management in areas related to human health, such as the pharmaceutical industry, scientific writing agencies, regulatory agencies and government administration.
Graduates find rewarding work in a wide variety of sectors: the pharmaceutical industry, the academic or educational world, healthcare, the environmental sector and food inspection, among others.

As a biomedical scientist, for example, you provide thoroughly prepared research, which is a crucial phase in the development of new drugs and other medical products.
It is also possible to cooperate with the set-up and follow-up of preclinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry.
The programme gives you the perfect profile for clinical trial design, as well as the monitoring and conducting of these trials, on both the business and clinical sides of the process.

You can also work for service companies that deliver or develop products or equipment to the medical sector. Positions in government are also open to you, especially in the area of public health.
Some biomedical scientists choose to specialise in the legislation around patents and the protection of biomedical discoveries, and others begin careers as biology, chemistry or biotechnology teachers.
Additionally, there is a current need for experts who can clearlycommunicate scientific information and research results to non-specialists and the general public.
