Biomedical Sciences: Education

The master’s programme in Biomedical Sciences – Education consists of compulsory components (e.g. courses and research projects) and electives. The total amount of credits of this two-year programme is 120 EC. Please check the list below for detailed descriptions of the components involved in the Education specialisation.

Additional information on the programme and its regulations, can be found on the website of the Leiden University and the learning management system (Brightspace). Information on course schedules is separately provided.

The master’s programme has the following objectives:

  • to impart to students: academic knowledge, insight, skills, and methodology in the field of biomedical sciences;

  • to encourage students to adopt an academic attitude by acquiring the ability to:

  1. engage in individual and independent academic thinking
  2. analyse complex issues
  3. write academic reports
  4. apply specialist knowledge and skills in a philosophical and social context;
  • to prepare students for an academic career and postgraduate education, or to prepare them for a career in teaching or career outside academia;

Education Specialisation

Fluency in Dutch required!

Deze specialisatie is bedoeld voor studenten die een baan als eerstegraads biologiedocent op een middelbare school ambiëren, of anderszins zich willen specialiseren in onderwijs. Maar de mogelijkheid om verder te gaan in het biomedisch onderzoek, blijft ook met een diploma in deze specialisatie bestaan.

De opleiding is deels in het Engels en deels in het Nederlands.

Het programma bevat, naast de verplichte onderdelen van de opleiding Biomedical Sciences (totaal 60 EC), twee onderdelen (in totaal ook 60 EC) bij het ICLON, namelijk:

  • een pakket ter opheffing van deficiënties in de biologie;

  • de ICLON lerarenopleiding Biologie.

Het programma van de biologiedeficiënties omvat de volgende onderdelen en kan in zelfstudie worden uitgevoerd.

  • Gedragsbiologie

  • Evolutionaire morfologie

  • Evolutiebiologie

  • Dierfysiologie

  • Plantenfysiologie

  • Biodiversiteit van planten en dieren

  • Ecologie

  • Een excursie, gevolgd bij de faculteit W&N

Voor een inhoudelijke beschrijving van de cursussen bij het ICLON wordt verwezen naar de studiegids van het ICLON.

Career Preparation

The programme of the master BMS contains the mandatory course Career Orientation of 2 EC. The assignments and activities within Career Orientation are designed to stimulate you to reflect on your strengths and weaknesses as well as you career options and choices, and are spread out through your whole master programme. You will get to know the broad job market for Biomedical Scientists by meeting researchers, alumni and employers during the various activities within this course. You will practice how to present your professional profile to your network. Entering the job market should feel like a logical follow-up of your activities in the master and this course offers the opportunity to find out what you can and want to do with your master degree Biomedical Sciences.

LUMC also offers Career Service. Career Service of the Medicine Faculty offers support if you have questions about your career, the job market and job applications, and organizes workshops on a variety of job related subjects.
