Major-bound elective courses

All major-bound elective courses (see pdf major electives), are linked to one or more of four profiles:

  • Genes to Organisms
  • Molecules & Cells 
  • Molecules & Medicine 
  • Biophysics & Modeling 

These profiles provide a framework to help you choose a direction that sparks your interest and may help to guide you towards your future master programme. Passing all foundation courses (major compulsory courses, 75 EC) should in principle provide sufficient pre-knowledge to choose any major-bound elective course linked to one of the profiles. However, always check the required pre-knowledge in the Course planner beforehand.

Most major-bound elective courses fit more than one profile, but some more specialized courses only fit one, and more likely require pre-knowledge from specific level 2 courses. Pay attention to this.
