Biological Sciences: General Biology (track)

The two-year track General Biology in the Master’s programme Biological Sciences is designed for students who do not wish to restrict their focus to one subject in the field of biology. Your study may cover topics such as the molecular mechanisms of a virus or the population dynamics of African elephants.

Education from September, the academic year 2020-2021

The academic year 2020-2021 will start as planned in September. We expect small-scale on-site attendance, within the guidelines of the Dutch government, will be possible once again from September. This means we will be providing a form of hybrid education in the first semester, partly on-campus and partly online. From 1 July it will be clear what our hybrid education is going to look like.

Admission during COVID-19
In exceptional cases, the UvA will allow you to start your Master’s programme before having fully completed your Bachelor’s degree. The study delay must be COVID-19 related and concern courses from the second semester of the 2019-2020 academic year (February through June 2020). Check the Application and Admission pages for more information.

Is General Biology at the UvA the study for you?

It is, if you:

  • have a solid background in biology;
  • plan to work in areas where a broad knowledge of biology will be useful;
  • want to learn to address issues of global interest;
  • are looking specifically for much freedom to compile your own programme;
  • want the advantages of a small-scale programme, where students and staff all know each other.

What does General Biology at the UvA have to offer me?

The Master’s track General Biology allows you to create your own specific study path within the field of biology. You are free to select your courses from the other tracks in the Biological Sciences Master's programme, related programmes at the University of Amsterdam or even other universities, provided the focus of your study is on Biology.
