The MSc LST programme offers four specialisations:
Research in Life Science and Technology; students follow a two-year programme in one of the research themes to become an independent and creative scientist.
Life Science and Technology and Education (taught partly in Dutch); prepare for a career in teaching chemistry and/or biology.
Life Science and Technology and Science Communication and Society (taught partly in Dutch); combine research with programmes in different aspects of science communication, such as journalism.
Life Science and Technology and Science Based Business; combine training in Life Science and Technology with education in business and entrepreneurship.
Students must organise their programme according to the global scheme shown below, in accordance with their mentor. The programme must comply with the "OER", the programme regulations. Students that choose the EDU, SCS or SBB-specialisation need to follow modules speciﬁc for the specialisation and therefore have a reduced research programme.
