Computer Science: Bioinformatics, 2018-2019

The Bioinformatics specialisation contains a full-time, two-year master’s programme (120 EC).


During the first year students will complete:

  • the mandatory Core programme ( 24 EC)
  • a selection of Specialisation courses ( 24-36 EC)
  • a Support programme (maximum 12 EC)

During the second year, students will do a Research Assignment (15 EC) and carry out a Master's Thesis Research Project (45 EC)

If applicable, a Support programme will be defined by the Board of Bioinformatics (BoB) for students that have minor deficiencies in their prior education. The selection of Specialisation courses is made in consultation with the study advisor. The total amount of Specialisation courses will be determined depending on the scope of the Support programme that needs to be followed.
