Throughout the duration of the minor, you’ll learn to produce polymeric nanoparticles in practical classes, and functionalize them with biologically relevant groups or peptides. The physical properties of these bio-hybrid nanoparticles are characterized to ultimately study and analyze their interact

Why Bio-Nanotechnology

Do you want to learn how to think and work in a multi-disciplinary approach? In the practicals, (bio)-medical technology and (bio)-analytical chemistry these are brought together. (Bio)-medical students and chemistry students need to share expertise with each other, making multidisciplinary teamwork essential. The expertise from the different specializations is required at different times, so students learn to take the initiative and lead when needed. This comes together in a research proposal that students will write with their multidisciplinary team.

Why study in the Netherlands?

The Netherlands has a large population of international students so you won’t feel alone. In fact, 1 in 10 students is an international student. At the International School of Business it’s even 1 in 2 students. Why do so many international students come here? Because the Netherlands has excellent, affordable higher education. It also has a thriving economy (18th in the world) so there are plenty of job opportunities. What’s more, the Dutch are open-minded and almost everyone speaks English.
