The Life Sciences program trains students for lab research positions in the growing pharmaceutical and biotechnical industry and universities.

The Life Sciences program trains students for lab research positions in the growing pharmaceutical and biotechnical industry and universities.

Our Bsc (and MSc) Applied Science graduates occupy key roles in research and development teams. They are in charge of executing the research work, co-ordinating lab assistants and conferring with senior researchers, professors and centres on improving and creating innovative lab methods.

Professional opportunities

Upon successful completion of their Life Sciences program, graduates can choose for a key position in a research and development team. Considering the global shortage in highly qualified lab personnel, there is rising demand for our students which is reflected in the attractive start-up salaries.

Graduates work in R&D teams designing new drugs, finding anti-viral solutions, altering organisms like e-coli to produce useful medicine, changing DNA in malaria parasites, altering cultivation plants, analysing DNA profiles, diagnosing pathology samples, and the like. Other graduates continue in academic PhD programmes in reputable institutes and universities. A number has returned to their home countries to help there set up academic training programmes as well as setting up research institutes and biochemistry companies under the auspices of local ministries.

Application procedure

During the first months of each new year, staff from International Office and an ESL lecturer travel to a number of countries in SE Asia to interview candidates registered through affiliated agencies. In addition, contacts are made with established high schools and universities as well as visits to our students on placements or BSc graduate assignments.

Candidate students must have valid TOEFL/IELTS certificates, appropriate prior education in science subjects as well as be motivated for Life Science and study in Europe. In addition, the Dutch Immigration Office needs to see proof of sufficient financial backing before issuing a student visa. If all information is correct and approved of before 1 July, students can be assisted in time to find student housing and receive their visa in time to take part in the end of August orientation activities at HAN.
