Master Programs with an excellent reputation
(an international track within Medical and Pharmaceutical Drug Innovation)
(This program is coordinated by the faculty of Mathematics & Natural Sciences. Students focusing on neurosciences research, often referred to as the "n-track", will also conduct a large share of their research at the University Medical Center Groningen. Future PhD students in this program may also therefore benefit from the opportunities of our Abel Tasman Talent Program.)
Building Leaders in Science
We take pride in creating an environment where each student can prosper in their specific field of interest; learning to think critically, independently, and creatively.
The programs we offer share a philosophy of strengthening, complementing and advancing theoretical knowledge and research skills through a heavily practical and hands-on approach.
Students who are accepted onto one of our programs benefit from:
- Supervision from internationally-renowned scientists
- Application of most up to date and modern techniques
- Wide access to the hospital's state-of-the-art facilities
- Highly intensive and interactive programs.
Full preparation for a successful and fulfilling career in (bio)medical or health sciences
During the master program, you will have had the opportunity to design your own PhD project. Therefore, upon graduation you will be well qualified to go on and attain a PhD position anywhere in the world. The very best students will receive offers to continue with their PhD at the UMCG.
Regardless of whether or not you decide to continue to PhD level, the opportunities for our graduates are vast, with the skills you will have attained being sought after by any organisation conducting or dealing with research, in both the public and private sectors.
