I’ve already studied bioinformatics, or for some reason I think I’ve mastered some of the course material. Do I have to take the whole program, or can I start in the middle?
Sorry, you can’t start in the middle. Every student that starts a M.Sc. degree can only begin the degree in any given September – and takes the same required courses and a certain number of electives. You may get an exemption for course equivalents; however, you are still required to take the full number of course credits required by the university department you are registered at. Ph.D. students can start their program in September, January or May. However, if you are a PhD student selected for the internship program, you will need to begin your studies in September.
