Bachelor’s program Biomedical sciences

During the three-year bachelor’s program Biomedical Sciences, students focus on the causes of diseases. The program starts with molecules and cells and goes towards systems on an increasingly larger scale. Part of the bachelor’s program is in Dutch and hence not open to non-Dutch speakers. However, it is possible to take one or several courses at the LUMC. More information is available at the international student page

Master’s program Biomedical Sciences

The two-year master’s program Biomedical Sciences allows students to dig into all aspects related to health and disease. Next to a general part, students can choose to specialise in research, education, communication and management. Are you interested in doing a master’s in Biomedical Sciences? Visit the website for upcoming master’s students of Leiden University. Students who want to do only part of their program at the LUMC can contact the study coordinator for internationalization. Information for current students can be found at the student portal.

PhD in Biomedical Sciences

Graduated master’s students are trained to be independent scientists during the PhD program. The PhD tracks are provided by the Directorate of Research. PhD students usually are appointed for four years in one of the LUMC research groups.
