Student Research Project BW


Admission requirements

All exams of the first and second year BW have to be passed.


Depends on the chosen subject.

Course objectives

During the traineeship, students become acquainted with biomedical research by participation. They conduct research on an individual basis to find answers to research questions and gain insight into their field of study. The students learn how new scientific questions (hypotheses) arise which require well planned investigation to acquire proper answers. This will enable the student to explore various (new) methods and to develop problem solving skills. Furthermore, they learn to participate in a research team and to engage in departmental and laboratory deliberations on the progress of the research project.


Between semesters, we will transfer from using the scheduling app to using MyTimeTable: all educational activities before 6 February 2023 can be viewed on our LUMC scheduling website or in the scheduling app. View MyTimeTable for your schedule from 6 February onwards.

The Student Research Project is subject to the Procedures Training Periods/Research Projects (stageregeling; available in KL-APP). These regulations require detailed written agreements between supervisor and student that specify the conditions for the Research Project. This agreement is part of the “stage aanvraag formulier") and should be put forward to the bachelor internship committee (BIC) via KL-APP at least four weeks before the start of the project.
