What our students say

Nika Galic, MSc. in Ecology and Evolution
'I chose the Ecology and Evolution programme because I wanted to do a Master's degree in Fundamental Ecology. The choice of interesting Master's programmes in my field was quite limited but not at the University of Amsterdam.'

Ecology and Evolution is a track of the Master's programme in Biological Sciences. The Master's programme in Biological Sciences has been accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This means that upon successful completion of the programme, students will receive a Master's degree in Biological Sciences and the title of Master of Science (MSc).
