Step-by-step guide

This guide clearly explains the steps you need to take to apply, and the subsequent admission process.

The research specialisations are considered to be default specialisations. Hence, students will only be admitted to the master on a research specialisation. Students following the research specialisations continue their research training in the second year. Students opting for a non-research specialisation will be admitted after the successful completion of their first year of the master programme.

Every master student of Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences has to start with a Research Project of 9 months (RP1) within the LACDR (our research institute). On the website of the LACDR you can find information on the various research programmes that are offered by our research divisions. Research specialisations are associated with the research themes of the different divisions.

BFW students: BFW students who want to start the master BPS in the academic year 2024-2025 in September 2024, please enroll in studielink and fill out this RP1 pre-registration form between May 14 and June 14 (18:00h), 2024. This form is a pre-registration. This procedure is also applicable to students who have completed the bachelor in past years.
All other students: Enrol in Studielink for one of the research specialisations. A day later you will receive log-in details for Leiden University’s application system (uSis), where you can complete your application. In case you are admissible, the admission committee of the master programme will ask you to give us your top 3 selection of RP1 topics.
All students: During the first week of September, you are required to attend information sessions of principal investigators of the LACDR, after which you can adjust your preference. Based on the information you provide, the education office of the master BPS will match you with a suitable RP1 spot in the second week of September.
