This programme is designed to give the students the scientific background and insight that enables them to enter the labour market. It provides qualified theoretical knowledge from both of the mentioned areas. The biological basis lies in cell biology, microbiology, virology, genetics, molecular biology, animal and human physiology, immunology and biotechnology. Topics in chemistry include general and inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry and biochemistry. Sufficient time is dedicated to the teaching of mathematics, physics and information technology. In addition to theoretical knowledge a great emphasis is placed on practical skills. More than six hours per week, which represent one-fourth of the teaching time, are devoted to practical training. Therefore this programme also provides the practical training in private research institutions. One of the advantages of the study programme is a relatively small target group, approximately 20 students, allowing for improved teaching focused on individuals.
