A major part of the biology bachelor programme in Leiden is actively taking part in scientific research. In a 5-months research internship in their third year, students will work on a research project of their own choice. During the internship, students will learn how to design and implement their own research, how to analyse and interpret the results of their research and how to write a report in the form of a scientific publication.
In Leiden, research projects can be carried out at any of the research groups of the IBL, but also at NCB Naturalis, the Institute of Environmental Sciences or at Leiden University Medical Centre. The unique availability of these biological research institutes enables biology students in Leiden to choose from a very large variety of possible research topics.
