Programme profile

This programm differs from many other biology courses. Its focus is on subjects as human biology, microbiology, genetics and cell culture, whereas zoology and botany are not part of the Curriculum. 

The 5th (and the 6th) semester may be spent abroad at one of our partner universities, in countries such as
n the UK, the Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Belgium, Poland, Italy or Australia. A stay for one year can result in bachelor degrees of both universities.

The degree enables the entrance either into a job or into a master programme, for example BS-R's own MSc in Biomedical Sciences. 

Graduates of the programme will have job opportunities in research and development, product quality management, product analysis, and technical services in medical, clinical and biological laboratories, public health, pharmaceutics or healthcare.
