Careers in Biology

The Undergraduate Degree mainly aims at training students on different aspects of Biology, Biochemistry, Earth and Environment Science. The amount of knowledge to acquire is important and very diverse, and so are career opportunities. This explains why Degrees progressively specialise towards environment science, biological and biochemical research, oenology, earth science and teaching.

Organisation of studies
The Undergraduate Degree is split into three years of two semesters each. The student attends an average of 20 hours of class per week. Each semester is worth 30 ECTS, the full Undergraduate Degree is hence worth 180 credits.

Five specialties are available:

- General Biology and Earth and Universe Sciences
- Cellular Biology and Physiology
- Biochemistry
- Environment and Sustainable Development

The first year is common to all specialties and to the Exact and Natural Science major. The specialisation comes progressively, in third year when students choose a specialty that matches their career path project.

Teacher mentoring / professional internship
A teacher is in charge of the student’s educational follow-up. To achieve the follow-up, there is a minimum of four sessions per year. Aside the sessions, the mentor is available along the year to answer the student’s questions regarding his/her studies.
