Biological Sciences

Subject code


In 1958, the discipline of Biophysics was established in USTC to train cutting-edge talents for the two bombs and one satellite. It was approved of as a national First-level key discipline of biology in 2007, and was selected as a national ""Double First-class"" Initiative in 2017. The school now has 164 full-time teachers, of whom 80% are national high-level talents.

Cognitive Neuroscience

Why study Cognitive Neuroscience at Radboud University?

This Master’s programme is located within the world-renowned Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, located on the campus of the Radboud University, with a research staff of over 500 scientists.


"Why study Biology in Nijmegen?

The programme lays the foundation in Biology and Medical Biology but also offers a lot of flexibility. First, you’ll develop an understanding of the entire field of biology by following courses from all learning trajectories. Later on, you will choose the learning trajectory of your interest in Biology or Medical Biology.

You will make use of excellent research facilities. For example, brand new green houses, the Phytotron (root laboratory), and scanners for measuring brain activity.

Biotechnology and Enterprise

Biotechnologies can help solve many challenges. Some concern the healthcare arena whether at the front-line in terms of diagnosis and treatment, or earlier in the process, in terms of developing drugs, diagnostics and medical devices. Others are concerned with improving the agriculture/food industries, producing alternative energy sources, or simply with developing new technologies to improve research in the lab.
