"Biology has been a key interest of mine ever since a young age. Over time, I developed new interests combining different aspects of chemistry, physics, pharmaceutics and a lot more. I am fascinated by understanding what is going on, both in and around us. Studying Molecular and Biophysical Life Sciences (MBLS) allows me to learn about all of those things on a molecular scale and really get to understand the key processes taking place in life around us. For example, genetics and inheritance are topics that I’m fascinated by. Through a high number of contact hours, a mixture of large and small group work in addition to interesting course content, MBLS has allowed me to deepen my knowledge in these subjects and discuss topics with equally enthusiastic peers and teachers.

The topics we cover in MBLS are in-depth and don’t just ‘scratch the surface’ of what’s out there and by following one of the study paths, you can follow courses and study topics in even more detail by tailoring your bachelor program to your interests and passions. Through electives and free electives, you get even more opportunities to study what interests you even if it isn’t specifically related to MBLS. Through all of this, it results in the bachelor program being full of exciting courses and information and it really lets you pick what you enjoy studying.

In the future, I aim to move to the business side of biotech and pharmaceuticals and be able to apply my in-depth knowledge that I will have gained through completing my MBLS bachelor in a different environment compared to research and academia."
