Get to know the Master's

Twice a year, we organise a Master's Open Day where you can get to know our programme Infection and Immunity. You can join our information session, talk to our students and staff, and find out if this Master's for you. 

Next Master's Open Day

The next Master's Open Day will take place on Wednesday 9 October. More information can be found on this webpage or click on the button below to register:

Education Fairs

We participate in several education fairs in the Netherlands and abroad. These are all listed in our calendar of events.

On Wednesday 27 November 2019 we organised a live webinar about the Master’s programme in Infection and Immunity. Our programme coordinator Kristin Denzer and Eva Struijf, alumna, provided you with detailed information about the Master's programme and shared their personal experiences on the programme with you!

What we covered

  • Insights into the programme, study scheme and research areas;
  • Student stories about the programme and life as a student in Utrecht
  • Career prospects and how we prepare you for the job market;
  • Admission requirements and deadlines.

NB: Since 2019 a new elective course Computational Immunology for 4.5 EC has been developed, which is not mentioned in this webinar. You can find information about this course on the GSLS Students’ Site (beneath the tab 'Infection and Immunity'). The rest of the information in the webinar is still valid.

Eva recently graduated with a Master’s degree in Infection and Immunity. She did her Bachelor's Health and Life Sciences at the VU University in Amsterdam. During her Bachelor's she followed different courses in the field of microbiology and immunology. Furthermore she did an microbiology internship for three months. In September 2016 she started with Infection & Immunity. In her Master's she did an internship of 9 months in a microbiology lab, where she was studying the complement system. For her writing assignment Eva made a review about all antibody-based therapies in development against Neuroblastoma (a childhood cancer). Lastly, she did an internship of six months in the field of immunology and studied how tissue resident memory T cell are induced and what markers are expressed. Eva is currently performing her PhD at UMC Utrecht.

A unique opportunity to experience what it is like to pursue a career as a researcher.
