Our degree focuses on areas of local research excellence. Courses are organised by major fields, but students can also combine them in a more personal fashion that suits their scientific interests.
In any case, the selection of courses needs to be agreed by the tutor or a teaching staff member at the beginning of the year.

Additional courses can also be taken during this semester in the Department of Biology or in other departments or partner institutions, with certification or credits for the Diplôme de l’ENS (DENS).

In addition to the previous list, the Department of Biology offers the following courses :

- Methodology Tutorials in M1+M2 (D09)
- Insights in Life Sciences by SPIBens (T107)

During the second semester (S2), students enroll in a 4 to 5-month research internship.
Alternatively, they can enroll in a 3-month internship (in France only), to be completed with courses amounting to six ECTS.
To validate their internship, students submit a written report and defend their results in front of a jury.
