The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) offers a large number of Master's programmes(overseen by our Graduate School of Science and Engineering).
How does climate change affect whales and seals? How does over-fishing influence marine food-webs? How do we restore and protect the Wadden Sea?
The two-year selective Master's degree programme in Marine Biology focuses on life in our planet's seas and oceans. Whether you are interested in biological oceanography, conservation of marine mammals, or coastal marine ecology, we offer plenty opportunities to receive a solid academic training in marine biological research. Together with your mentor (who will be a professor in marine biology) you can design your own study programme to fit your personal preferences.
Our flexible Master's degree program is open to students with a Bachelor's degree in Biology. We offer a number of mandatory master courses, taught by experienced staff from several
This Master's degree programme has a selection procedure; read the information below.
An academic Bachelor's in any field of Biological Sciences including a major in any of the following domains: biology, ecology, evolution, theoretical biology, behaviour, marine biology, molecular biology, genetics. This is merely an indication of required background knowledge. The admissions board determines whether the specific contents of this/these course(s) meet the admission requirements of the master programme for which you applied.
The University of Groningen is a top 100 research university with a global outlook.

The Faculty of Science and Engineering harbours a kaleidoscope of disciplines and research strengths. Our programmes in research and education range from nanomaterials and biomachinery to astronomy, from mathematics to pharmacy, from neurosciences to computer science, and from molecular and evolutionary biology to marine biology.
The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) offers a large number of Master's programmes (overseen by our Graduate School of Science and Engineering). Most of our Master's degree programmes (MSc) are fully English-taught, thus allowing students from all over the world to follow a degree programme with us.
For the Groningen Graduate School of Science and Engineering (GSSE) another important task is to provide an optimal training environment for all PhD students in the faculty. To this end, the GSSE organises courses in 'transferable skills,' coordinates and advertises courses offered by other graduate schools and research schools, provides practical information for PhD students, organises meetings and other networking activities, and provides a forum for discussion.
All educational activities at the faculty are facilitated and supported by the Educational Support Centre (ESC).
Research at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) is done in a number of research institutes. Researchers and research groups also participate in different international, national and local research institutes.
