    Course objectives and characteristics

    The Bachelor’s degree in Biology offers a broad, thorough training in the different fundamental subjects which are essential for a successful academic career in Biology, Genetics, and Animal and Plant Physiology.  The degree lasts three years, and throughout the course students are supported and guided in their choice of modules by the teaching staff.  Each year of the degree, from the acquisition of fundamental principles up to specialisation, focuses on precise objectives so that students can plan and develop both their academic studies and their subsequent professional careers.

    This pathway combines teaching in biochemistry, genetics and physiology, microbiology, immunology and genetic engineering, with additional modules such as virology, earth sciences, transgenesis and epistemology.  The course also includes a considerable amount of practical work (TP), which provide students with a sound training in scientific experimentation which will serve them well in their chosen practical professional path.

     

     

    Course structure

    Students begin to specialise in the final year of the degree (L3). 
    This third year is broken down into two teaching semesters, each followed by examinations. Lectures (also known as CM), Tutorials (TD) and Practical Work (TP) are grouped into Teaching Units (TU). Some subjects are compulsory, others are chosen by students from a range of options. These optional papers offer students the chance to study topics of interest from the course in greater detail and/or to discover topics from other disciplines and to explore inter-disciplinary approache

     

     

    Accompagnement pédagogique

    Students receive academic support in various forms throughout their studies :

    • Access to online services (academic portal, course resources, personal online progress monitoring…),
    • A designated supervising tutor,
    • Assistance in orientation towards the Masters provided by the teaching staff, the Department of Information and Orientation of High School Students and Undergraduates (PIOLE),
    • Certificates in languages and information technology as part of the degree (CLES, C2I).

     

    Internship

    In addition to the academic components the course may incorporate a professional internship.

     

    Employment opportunities

    • Research posts
    • Teaching positions
    • Competitive examinations to enter public services

     

     

    Further study

    Students may opt to pursue their studies up to Master’s level (bac + 5) or beyond.

    Terms of admission

    To be admitted to L3 :

    • Students with a BTS or DUT in a compatible field may be admitted, subject to the approval of the course director.
    • Students must have 120 academic credits (ECTS) from years one and two of this course, or 120 academic credits from years one and two of another course and the formal agreement of the course director.
