Alternative study guide

Ladies and gentlemen, there it is! The Alternative Study Guide version 2020! Are you working on choosing the specializations, but are you not sure exactly what to expect from the different specializations? Are you still choosing which specialization you want to do in your master’s? Or are you still looking for a nice free elective course? Then maybe this guide can help you.

Different biologists have written down their experiences with different subjects for us. We have then bundled them together in this guide. A fellow student’s perspective can be refreshing and gives you a different view of the subject than the formal description of the site. However, keep in mind that some opinions might not necessarily be yours!

Have you taken a course yourself that you think would be of interest to biologists and there is no evaluation in this guide yet, or did you come across something while reading that is no longer correct? Please contact us by sending an email to This is how we keep the study guide up-to-date together!

Thank you and good luck with your choice!
