The Biology programme of Eötvös Loránd University is assembled from intensive advanced level courses on the theoretical aspects of selected disciplines and special seminar series on problems in a narrower field of science.


The Biology programme of Eötvös Loránd University lets students join a research group preferably in a department of the University, but research groups in other universities or laboratories can also be chosen. Students have their own research project, which they work on under the supervision of a project leader. Project leaders usually also act as tutors, who are responsible for the progress of the students and for giving advice in assembling a personal curriculum for them.

During their studies, students can participate in different (university and country) level competitions where they can practice presentation of their research achievements in a conference setting.
