The MSc in Ecology and Evolution is a combination of in-depth training and the opportunity for designing a tailor-made program in ecology and evolution. In our program, students form collaborative cohorts and frequently interact with their supervisors & teachers. They also receive coaching from a personal mentor. They can participate in a broad spectrum of research projects, tailored to the individual preferences of the student, ranging from microbes to whales, and from molecules to ecosystems. Research can be conducted in the field or in the lab and theoretically as well as experimentally. There are also opportunities to conduct fieldwork in diverse environments (on all five continents), including the nearby Wadden Sea (on the UNESCO World Heritage list) and the arctic regions. We offer a double degree for the track Evolutionary Biology with the universities of Uppsala, Montpellier or Munich. Besides that, our faculty is the home of the 2016 Nobel laureate in Chemistry, Ben Feringa, and GELIFES is the home of the 2014 Spinoza Prize winner, Theunis Piersma. -
