Do you dream of standing on the frontline of the ongoing battle for better understanding of human health and diseases, leading to better prevention and treatment options? The Master of Biomedical Sciences at KU Leuven will truly immerse you in scientific biomedical research. By doing scientific research in a domestic or foreign laboratory you will gain thorough know-how, strengthen your scientific skills and learn the newest scientific methods.

What is the programme all about?

Biomedical sciences is a university bachelor and master education aimed at scientific research to support the field of medicine in particular. The education focuses on acquiring knowledge about healthy and ill humans by learning how the body of a healthy person functions - on a molecular level and for the entire organism - as well as by learning what causes diseases and how to prevent them.

Strengths

  • Graduates will be fully equipped to solve critical biomedical challenges, whether it be as part of a group or individually.
  • The international programme is key to opening mindsets to global solutions in health and disease, and by doing scientific research in a domestic or foreign laboratory, you will strengthen your scientific skills and learn the latest scientific methods.
  • Graduates can expect to embark on international-level careers in diverse areas.
  • All of these skills and accumulated knowledge will be applied in your final master's thesis.

Admission criteria

To qualify for admission you must have a relevant bachelor's degree (for example Biomedical Sciences, Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences, Life Sciences.)

This implies a bachelor's degree obtained at a high level university with sufficient education in the following subjects: Molecular Cellular Biology, Genetics, Immunology, Anatomy, Pathology, Physiology, Microbiology, Neurosciences, Epidemiology and Statistics. Practical training in molecular biological and biochemical techniques is also required.

Insufficient education in a number of the aforementioned subjects may be compensated by sufficient previous education in other subjects relevant for a Biomedical Science education (e.g. Biochemistry, Pharmacology).
