Course Start September 2017 Course overview Life Sciences at HAN University of Applied Sciences is a hands-on four-year Bachelors course that is taught in English. During your studies, you gain theoretical knowledge, but you also spend more than half of your time doing practical work. So when you graduate, you are well prepared for the job market. Life Sciences is the international and English-language equivalent of the Biology stream within the Dutch Bachelors course Biologie en Medisch Laboratoriumonderzoek (Biology and Medical Laboratory Research). Except for the language of instruction, the two courses are identical in terms of both content and level. Orientation The 1st year offers an orientation to the life sciences: you learn about fundamental theories and lab techniques. You apply your new knowledge in small group projects dealing with problems from the field of life sciences. These projects help you to develop your problem-solving and communication skills. They also give you insight into current issues that are relevant to professional practice. Increasing independence Over the next three years, as you broaden your knowledge and sharpen your analytical skills, you will learn with increasing independence. You will participate in projects with an increasing level of complexity. You also complete a work placement, an elective module and an independent graduation assignment. The assignment involves planning and conducting your own experiments. You then present your results in a professional manner, for example, in a final report to your project advisers or in a presentation. Subjects in the Life Sciences course Molecular Biology Molecular Genetics Cell Biology Microbiology Immunology Virology Bioinformatics Molecular Plant Biology Carcinogenesis Immunology Physiology of Plants and Animals Communication Skills (written and oral) Research Skills Academic year The academic year starts in September and ends in June. It is spread over 42 weeks and is divided into two semesters and each semester is divided into two terms. You take exams, write reports and give presentations at the end of each term. Your instructors will evaluate your work each semester and advise you on your progress. They will also coach you so that you can achieve the best results possible. Academic Progress Students can obtain a maximum of 60 ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System) per academic year. After the first year students must have gained 37.5 ECTS in order not to get a Binding Negative Study Advice (BNSA). A BNSA means that you cannot continue your studies in your Bachelor course anymore. HAN is required to report to the Dutch Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) on the BNSA of the students holding a residence permit for study purposes. This has consequences for your residence permit. Career opportunities As a Life Sciences graduate, you will have countless employers to choose from, including health care providers and commercial enterprises.

Licence Frontières du Vivant

Center for Research and Interdisciplinary (CRI)
Campus 3 years September 2017 France Paris

The undergraduate program “Frontiers in Life Science” was created in 2011 as interdisciplinary life science program, based on innovative pedagogical methods and learning through research. It received the MCE Awards for “innovative pedagogy” [+]

A new bachelor program at Paris Descartes The bachelor program Frontiers in Life Science at the University Paris Descartes welcomed its first class of students in September 2011, to learn in a unique and exceptional environment, with interdisciplinary approaches to science and innovative pedagogy. Quoted by the newspaper Le Monde, Research and The Ministry of higher education and research (video) the FDV bachelor is having a successful growth and will increase its number of students to meet the demands.” An interdisciplinary scientific bachelor program The “Frontiers in Life Science” program offers a general interdisciplinary science training. Its first aim is to provide students with a strong science culture in several disciplines (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, philosophy of science) with balanced workload between all of these diverse disciplines. In addition to a vast scientific background, the students develop their individual profiles through career counseling and choices of projects and internships, and prepare themselves for future studies. Learning through research The “Frontiers in Life Science” program leaves plenty of room for project-based learning and exploration of various professional backgrounds (laboratories, private companies, associations …) Over the period of three years, students are expected to take more and more responsibilities and autonomy in their projects. Learning through research methodology allows students to gain skills such as : Critical thinking Creativity and development of new tools Organizing and analyzing information Teamwork and leadership Visual and verbal communication ( text, web page, videos …) Our goal is to dedicate as much time and energy to development of skills, as to the acquisition of knowledge. Each year, several weeks are devoted to immersion in the world of research (laboratory training), a reflection on science communities and study of interdisciplinary approaches. Through several intensive courses, students have the opportunity to experience a different learning environment and focus on emerging perspectives. During their first year, students will have completed : One week of initiation to research with many group activities and collaboration, discovering the steps of scientific inquiry and experimental approaches. A short internship within the course « Professional development and career planning » One week intensive interdisciplinary course, focused on hands-on activities (experiments and modeling), and ending with a one-day research project. An optional longer internship at the end of second semester During their second year, students will have completed : Two weeks of project-based learning where each student conducts its own research project, from the initial development of the idea, over experimental design and data acquisition, to data analysis and presentation of results. A group research project during the second semester, where students develop their teamwork and leadership skills, learn to manage time and expenses, critically analyze their data and present their results in a scientific manner Personalized education Students from the “Frontiers in Life Science” program benefit from the advantage to study in a small group (20-30 students per class) and a personalized support. In addition to teachers, students are supervised by tutors. These tutors are Master or PhD students, but also professionals with a scientific training, which help the students in choosing their future careers and advise them on emerging opportunities or alert them if specific skills need to be developed. Support and perspectives The Fondation Bettencourt Schueller supports the “Frontiers in Life Science” program and its innovative educational activities. The generous support allows us to host the students, their supervisors and visiting professors in the heart of Paris, at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI). Physical space of the CRI is dedicated and organized in a way to maximize the exchanges between disciplines and students and researchers of all levels. The “Frontiers in Life Science” program is a pilot project of the University Paris Descartes, an original program within the Center for Research and Higher Education (PRES) Sorbonne Paris Cité. We hope this pilot project will serve as a model for future university programs wishing to implement innovative approaches. PROGRAM SCIENTIFIC CONTENT Bachelor program “Frontiers in Life Science” should not be seen as a degree program in biology, but as an interdisciplinary training for students who are curious about science in general. Even though the living world is at the heart of the studied systems, the teaching is balanced between biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science. ORGANIZATION OF SEMESTERS In the first year, the two weeks of immersion enable the students to familiarize themselves with the program, to get to know the teaching staff and other students. The choice of learning topics is fixed, so that all students obtain the basic knowledge from the main core, including the basics of mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology and science methodology and philosophy. In the second year, students have more flexibility in choosing the subjects according to their interests, and project-based learning becomes more important. Just as in the first year, learning is organized around themes and approached in an interdisciplinary manner. The last year of studies is not a classical specialization year: we offer the students a possibility to explore new interests or deepen their existing interests through a semester of studies in a French or foreign partner institution, and through a semester-long internship. To prepare their third year, the students are offered help with career choice options, their scientific interests, and guided through the admission process in our partner institutions. During the third year, students have regular progress reports, where they discuss their projects with their peers, in person and via teleconferencing if they are abroad. The third year ends with a final get-together, where each student presents their experience in front of their peers and teachers. Semester 1/ Observing and describing life, matter, motion Semester 2/ Stability and change in living systems Semester 3/ Living world and bio-inspired systems Semester 4/ Interactions and communication Semester 5/ Specialization (in a partner institution) Semester 6/ Practice ( pre-placement orientation, internship, restitution) [-]
