The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.
Study in biology can lead to careers in health care, teaching, environmental conservation, and biotechnology. It can also form the base from which to pursue doctoral study in the areas of clinical or research work.
There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

The Cognitive Neuroscience Master’s programme at Radboud University is unique in the world because of its multidisciplinary approach. Psychologists, physicists, biologists, mathematicians, linguists and medical professionals work side by side. [+]
How do we learn language? How do we recognise faces? And how do we remember things? The human brain is fascinating and much still has to be discovered about it. This is why Cognitive Neuroscience has been called the discipline of the future. A discipline which - thanks to new brain imaging techniques - has made enormous progress. If you want to be in the front line of scientific research then Radboud University is the place to be. A concentration of top scientists from all over the world, combined with state-of-the-art technology, has resulted in an environment in which the brain is revealing it secrets.
Unique approachThe Cognitive Neuroscience Master’s programme at Radboud University is unique in the world because of its multidisciplinary approach. Psychologists, physicists, biologists, mathematicians, linguists and medical professionals work side by side. It is precisely here – at the interface between disciplines – that discoveries are made that lead to new insights. This is the secret of our success and the reason for our excellent international reputation.... [-]
ECOGEN Master’s degree programme prepares the students for future leadership positions in conservation biology and environmental ecology. It provides the students with appropriate knowledge in ecology and population genetics of endangered species and ecosystems.

Master's Programme in Plant and Forest Biotechnology
Plant biotechnology is becoming increasingly important as a tool to solve some of the global problems related to feed, fuel and ecosystem management in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner. The Master of Science Programme in Plant and Forest Biotechnology offers students a specialized competence and skills to recognize, understand and find solutions to these challenges. The programme is based upon a set of coordinated courses which together amount to 80 credits (120 ECTS credits) spread over two years. Up-to-date knowledge is provided about plant cell and molecular biology as well as plant growth and development. This is applied in the fields of plant breeding, biotechnology and functional genomics. The programme is organized by the Department of Plant Physiology (Umeå University) and the Department of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) which together form the Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC). The education is anchored around the various research topics of UPSC.... [-]
The aim of this programme is to train plant breeders able to grasp and manage the scientific and technical interdisciplinarity between biotechnologies, agronomy, plant biology, genetics, regulatory issues and markets. [+]
The Master in Biology broaches a number of topics, such as genetics, evolution, molecular and cellular mechanisms, physiology, the environment and biodiversity. The programme is therefore founded on various disciplines, including animal biology, plant biology, anthropology, cell biology and molecular biology. It allows students to increase their practical knowledge, primarily through laboratory work. It also allows students to do work placements in other fields, such as marine biology, ecology and alpine or tropical botany. In addition to the general Master of Science in Biology, which consists entirely of electives, a number of specialisations are available for a more targeted curriculum. [+]

Master in Particle PhysicsYou have a degree in physics or physical chemistry, our M1 allows you to deepen your knowledge of General Physics (electromagnetism, Fluid Mechanics, statistical physics, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, instrumentation…). You can choose in the second half a hundred hours of introduction to research in particle physics, and have the ability to make an introductory course in search of two and a half months in a laboratory. Obviously useful for those who wish to use in research academic, these teachings are an opening for other working methods of research and deepening discipline always transferable to other areas.Already have an M1 physics or physical chemistry, M2 will immerse you in our research in particle physics with courses that address both the theoretical concepts related to fundamental interactions (principles of symmetry, quantum field theory, gauge invariance ...) that instrumental methods which allow us to probe the nature : principles of detections implementing acquisition systems and data processing. Optional courses can also be an opening in the field of cosmology and astroparticle, either to radiation-matter interactions and their applications in the field of radiation. The second year ends with a research internship of five months in the laboratory.All specialty courses are taught by faculty members and researchers from the Laboratory of Particle Physics (University Blaise Pascal - CNRS/IN2P3) participating in international research programs such as the CERN (European Laboratory for Particle Physics).A Research Master course is a prerequisite for doctoral studies follow.
