BSc in Molecular and Biophysical Life Sciences
The Faculty of Science of Utrecht University offers a Bachelor’s program in Molecular and Biophysical Life Sciences (MBLS). The program combines biology, chemistry, physics and pharmaceutical sciences to study life from different perspectives. The MBLS programme will equip you to make meaningful contributions to our understanding of life and to address life science related societal challenges.
The first three semesters (1½ years) of the program focus on fundamental concepts and research methods of the various disciplines. In the wet lab and during computer practicals students become familiar with techniques to study biomolecules in isolation or inside cells and even in atomic detail. They will learn the basics of programming and bioinformatics to explore the vast amount of data produced in the modern life sciences. After completing this basic training the students have substantial freedom to follow their own interests and ambitions by choosing subjects both within and outside this Bachelor’s. The crown on the Bachelor’s program is a three-month research project in which students put all skills and academic competences you acquired into practice. MBLS provides an excellent basis for a broad range of Master’s programmes in the Netherlands and abroad.
