This page provides information to support your application for the Master's programme of Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Application procedure: the application letter
All applicants for the MSc programme are required to write an application letter. In this letter you need to provide a detailed motivation to support your choice for the specific research area and corresponding LACDR-division (Which falls under a cluster) in which you would like to follow your Research Project 1.
To provide you with a suitable overview of the wide range of research-areas, we have arranged the Research themes of the LACDR clusters below.
Important if you wish to apply:
You are required to provide an application letter. This is very important, and requires two very essential elements:
- Firstly, it is paramount to include within your letter of application a very detailed and specific motivation which clearly supports your choice of LACDR research area.
- Secondly, you need to provide a detailed and excellent motivation of why this choice is logically supported by your previous research experience.
