The MSc in Cancer Research is a structured research master's course, meaning that approximately one third of the course is taught material and two thirds is laboratory research. The taught modules are taught by experts in each topic from different academic disciplines and structured in a way that ensures that our students receive a comprehensive and overarching knowledge in cancer biology. The laboratory research will encompass two full semesters. After an induction phase, our students work on one research project from January to September. This research experience teaches a broad range of research skills, state-of-the-art technologies in cancer research, experience in experimental design, data interpretation, and data presentation.
