What do penicillin, beer, and bio-degradable plastic have in common? Not much at first sight, but on closer consideration, the thing that links these (and many more) applications is the living cell. This ‘smallest building block of life’ is the key element in the Life Science & Technology (LST) degree programme taught jointly at Delft University of Technology and Leiden University. The programme combines biology, chemistry, physics, maths and several other fields.

Students' experiences

'I particularly like the fact that LST covers such a varied range of subjects.'

'LST offers so many opportunities; I have yet to discover all of them.'

'The advantage of LST is that it's taught in two cities - 'the best of both worlds'!'
