Biomedical Sciences: Immunology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Do you want work at the intersection of human biology and molecular biology? Are you interested in the interventions and technologies that can impact (public) health?

 

Then this is the Master’s programme for you. Your Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences enables you to choose from a variety of specialisations that focus on the biology of human health and disease. In your second year, you can decide whether to pursue a research  career, or put your knowledge to work more directly in society.

Biomedical Sciences: Immunology

The Master's in Biomedical Sciences is a two-year, full-time programme

 

You will start the programme with a research specialisation in Immunology, Infectious Disease or Neurobiology. 

 

After the first year of research, you can make your degree your own by choosing either a future in research, or in a field more directly tied to society. Those latter fields include International Public Health, Science Communication, Science in Society or Education – Teaching Biology (Dutch only).

 

The societal specialisations will make you well prepared and well equipped for a scientific function that lies outside the standard domain of laboratory research.

 

The programme’s structure ensures that you will emerge as a specialist in one or two specific disciplines within the biomedical sciences.

 

The programme consists of:

  • Several specialisations, each including compulsory courses (12-18 EC)
  • Three compulsory courses (total of 9 EC)
  • Elective courses (nr. of EC depends on combination of specialisations)
  • First internship (30 EC)
  • Second internship (30 EC)
  • Literature thesis (9 EC)

 

Courses form half of the Biomedical Sciences programme. For the other half, you must conduct your own research. There is plenty of scope for practical work, giving you the opportunity to use the very latest research methods and equipment. You can also select a work placement in policymaking, education or communication, depending on your chosen specialisation.

 

Summary

With a specialisation in Immunology, you will have a broad understanding of immunological processes. This ranges from the molecular and cellular interactions between host and pathogen to an integrative knowledge of the role of the immune system in various pathologies, such as cancer, infectious diseases and autoimmunity.

 

You will also specialise in one of the subjects within the field of Immunology. At the end of the programme, you will understand current theory and the key research questions in the field, and have an understanding of the scientific and social relevance of this subject area.
