The teaching strategy takes its inspiration from the idea of â€˜taking responsibility for oneâ€™s own learningâ€™. In the core subjects, students have a choice between a series of activities in human sciences and may choose 11 credits freely from theBiochemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology programme or from that of Biology of Organisms and Ecology. In each option course there are 10 credits (Biochemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology) or 14 credits (Biology of Organisms and Ecology) to focus training on a total of eight different areas of biology. Learning is for the most part centred on individual work (e.g. reading, consultation of databases and bibliographic references, field and laboratory work).
