The first year of the 4-semester-long Biology programme of University of Szeged consists of lectures, seminars and practical training in advanced genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology, bioinformatics, immunology, cell biology, microbiology and plant biology. Both the basic and the applied/ industrial science aspects of these disciplines will be studied extensively. In the second year students will have several laboratory courses in different aspects of molecular biology, cell biology, biotechnology, microbiology and plant biology.
Graduates of the Faculty usually choose their careers in research laboratories, educational institutions, hospitals, clinics, environmental agencies, and pharmaceutical, food, agricultural and chemical industries. Successful graduates can also continue their studies and research by applying for our international Biology PhD programme at the University of Szeged.
