Radboud University aims to educate the best biomedical scientists with not just a thorough understanding of the molecular, individual and population aspects of human health and disease, but also with unique areas of expertise. To do this we have constructed a Master’s programme in Biomedical Sciences that gives students the opportunity to construct their own programme based on personal academic and professional interests. Students choose one of three research institutes as a learning environment and combine that with one of three career profiles.
The programme provides students with a solid base in research methodology, statistics and biostatistics, laboratory research and communication skills. Leading scientists in fields ranging from metabolism, membrane transport, neuromuscular disease and inflammation to screening efficacy, clinical interventions and evidence-based medicine are involved in the teaching programme as lecturers and tutors.
A majority of our graduates become researchers in government departments, research organisations, universities and medical or pharmaceutical companies. Graduates also opt for careers as communication advisors or scientific consultant/advisor with a background in biomedical science, an expertise that is much in demand.
The Master’s programme in Biomedical Sciences has a strong emphasis on career prospects by allowing students to focus on one career path: research, communication or consultancy. A majority (72%) of Biomedical Sciences Master’s graduates find a paid job directly after graduating. And many of our alumni are content with their positions (88%), positive about the extent to which capacities are utilised (88%), and believe that the job offers good prospects for career advancements (79%).
