The Master's degree programme in Biology takes two years to complete, and each academic year is divided into two semesters.

The diagramme below gives you an overview of the course of study. On mobile devices it works best in landscape mode.

Specialisations

The structure of the programme allows you to opt for a general profile or specialise in a specific research area. The specialisations should be considered as suggestions to give you a better overview of the elective courses and projects that we offer within the research areas listed.

Please note that the specialisation profiles are currently under revision. The descriptions below are, therefore, not up-to-date. We expect the new profile descriptions to be ready during the spring of 2023.


Example of a timetable

Below is an example of what a weekly timetable might look like for a first-semester student on the Master's degree programme in Biology. There are, of course, breaks throughout the day, for example the academic quarter. Please note that your timetable may vary from week to week and that teaching activities may be scheduled on weekdays in the hours between 8.15 and 18.00.
