In order for students with an international degree to get admitted to this Masters programme, they will need to hold a Bachelors degree in Biology, Environmental Sciences or a related field of science. The international degree has to be equivalent to a Dutch university diploma.

They need to be proficient in English. Native speakers of English are those from Australia, Canada (with exception of Quebec), Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, UK, USA and South Africa. Non-native speakers of English without a Dutch Bachelors degree or VWO diploma need to possess 1 of the following:

Non-native speakers of English who do not meet the above English requirements may undertake a bridging programme, called a pre-Masters. You can qualify for a pre-Masters programme if you have diploma in one of the following orientations:

• Secondary teacher training with qualifications for Biology;
• A laboratory assistant training that sufficiently links up with the specialisation of your choice; or
• A pre-university (A-levels) high school diploma with Biology and Chemistry, or a training of a comparable level during your university of applied sciences training.
