The first program is oriented towards Bachelor students from natural sciences (like Biology, Chemistry and Physics), Mathematics, Computer science and Engineering (More particularly Bio-engineering). This program provides a complete 2 year Master curriculum including in the first year a limited amount of courses to get up to speed in Biology or Computer Science.

Program in 1 year (60 ECTS).

The second program is oriented towards Master students from Sciences, Applied Sciences and Biomedical faculties who wish to obtain an additional specialisation in 1 year. This master is completely organised in English.

Complementary program.

If you have a non-university degree you can also have access to this Master program by following an additional program of 15 or 60 ECTS. This program is determined by the jury taking into consideration the obtained degree and skills of the candidate.

Mobility Program

ULB has an agreement with Université Paris VI / UPMC which also offers a master in "Bioinformatics and Modelling":
In the context of this partnership, it is possible to spend one semester in Paris (to follow courses or to do the master thesis).

It is also possible to study abroad under the Erasmus Program. The student must then submit a proposal to the jury, who will analyse the program of the courses and validate (or not) the proposal.
