BSc Biological Chemistry
Johannes Kepler University, Linz
The joint Bachelor’s degree programme in Biological Chemistry is organised and supported by the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences at the JKU Linz and the Faculty of Natural Sciences at the University of South Bohemia in Budweis, Czech Republic. The programme not only focuses on competency skills and knowledge transfer in biological sciences, but also builds your international experience and training as a biochemist.. The programme not only incorporates essential areas of chemistry, crucial for overall knowledge in the field, but also addresses an analysis of biological systems as well as areas of biology in which chemical procedures are crucial.
In general, the programme will develop an excellent basic knowledge in the areas of inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, and physical chemistry. You will also receive an in-depth instruction in the areas of biological chemistry and biology.
The program will be conducted entirely in English. Participants with a proficient knowledge of English have the opportunity to pursue modules of foreign language study. The programme has been designed so that students spend 50% of the program studying at each university.
This degree qualifies graduates to pursue careers as project and research assistants or laboratory managers in the field of Life Sciences. The international nature of the programme particularly qualifies graduates for professions in multinational environments (such as EU institutions and internationally active business and corporations).
Students can progress to Masters programmes in a wide range of subjects in Life Sciences, including postgraduate entry routes to careers in Medicine & Veterinary Science.
