Europe's largest graduate school in Life Sciences

In Utrecht, Life Sciences education is organised in the Graduate School of Life Sciences, Europe's largest graduate school in Life Sciences. Located at Utrecht Science Park, the world-class research institutes Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht are home to scientists who are considered leaders in their field and publishing in top international journals. Together they organise and supervise the educational programmes for our students, preparing them for a career in science and/or bio business. Our Master’s students spend a large part of the two-year’s Master’s programmes participating in, and contributing to, on-going research projects, under supervision of a full professor.

The Graduate School of Life Sciences offers thematic education and training in 13 English taught research Master’s programmes and 14 PhD programmes.
