The field of life sciences includes education programs and courses linked to bioinformatics, biology, life sciences, ecology, philosophy, cognitive neuroscience, molecular biology and systems biology.
Education and research: A strong coupling
All of our teaching programs are firmly grounded in research. The university has a highly successful research record within systems biology: for example, we received very high marks in the ARC13 research evaluation carried out in 2013. We conduct research in infection biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology, cognitive neuroscience and philosophy of (neuro)science as well as doing sophisticated ecological modelling.
If you do not want to read an entire degree program, you can take freestanding courses, which work excellently for developing your competence in various areas.
Within the life sciences, we have a range of programs tailored to a broad labour market, with a possibility for internships: everything from doing analysis in a lab to being an environmental coordinator to working in treatment homes, with opportunities for further studies and research. Future prospects vary by profession, but an education with us will make you well prepared for the labour market regardless.
