Programme profile

The programme includes an introduction to the major disciplines of science that support various biological subjects (chemistry, physics, mathematics, informatics), basic modules in biology , advanced modules in biology and special modules. In the case of the special modules (starting from the 3rd semester), students have a certain freedom of choice in assembling their own list of modules that they wish to study, according to their own interests and their later choice of M.Sc. programme specialisation.

Students participate in intensive basic and advanced level courses to gain an essential theoretical knowledge in the different fields of biology, and to become familiar with the most important methods. The theoretical and practical knowledge of B.Sc. graduates enables them to recognise and analyse new scientific problems in biology, and to plan, perform, and evaluate simple laboratory or open field experiments for their investigation.
