The Life Sciences Seminars are organised monthly by the Master's programmes. The seminars are given by well-known, international scientists who present their research on topics covering the full range of biomedical and life sciences.
Together with Introducing Life Sciences this mandatory part of the curriculum is 1.5 credits in total.
Each Master’s student has to attend at least 10 seminars. At least 8 LS seminars organized by the Graduate School of Life Sciences have to be followed; two seminars can be followed elsewhere, subject to the approval of the programme coordinator.
The student is required to write a brief report individually (maximum 1 A4) of each seminar attended, and submit these reports to the programme coordinator. To pass the course*, the student hands in 10 summaries, at least 8 summaries of GSLS LS seminars, and a summary of the one or two seminars that were followed elsewhere, with the approval of the programme coordinator. Please note that you need to ask for this approval in advance.
*Master's programmes Regenerative Medicine and Technology, Medical Imaging and Science and Business management are an exception. Please look in the Education and Examination Regulations for more details
All Life Sciences Seminars start at 16:00 h, unless stated otherwise.
