|The objectives of the course are threefold: |
Upon completing the Master programme graduates are qualified for various jobs including positions as a researcher, consultant, teacher, manager or officer. Employers usually include universities, schools, institutes, governmental or non-governmental organizations and industry.
- to facilitate students in choosing a track within the MSc programme (master orientation)
- to inform students about internship possibilities in the field of biology and environmental science, both in research as well as management (internship orientation)
- to encourage students to think about future career possibilities (job orientation)
As a first Master course in the curriculum you will become acquainted with the research as carried in the Institute for Water and Wetland Research (IWWR), where most general biologists from Nijmegen reside. After a general introduction to the mission and research program of the IWWR, you will receive information from all IWWR research groups on the topics they study and the methods and instruments they use.|
This program is supplemented with excursions to institutes and organisations for you to get clear impressions of the working environments of Nijmegen biologists, the kind of problems they tackle, and how the knowledge you acquire is applied. Finally, this Orientation course contains a self-assessment on your personal goals for your Master program and the working environments that you prefer, so that you can make well-founded choice for the tracks and interships to chooce.
