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.
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.
