Biology Education Centre

Bachelor programme in biology/molecular biology including prep course

After the first course, Bioscience, students will continue the bachelor programme together with those who started the other entrance. The students will study basic courses for additionally 2 years which will provide them with a good basic knowledge in all the fields of biology. Students will also take courses in chemistry, mathematics and statistics, which are important tools for biologists. The last semester students will choose a specialised course (15 credits) and do an independent project work (15 credits), which is a requirement in order to get a bachelor's degree. Students may also, during their three years of studying the bachelor programme, take the course Professional qualifications in biology.
