Life Sciences

A Bachelor of Science or BSc is an undergraduate study program that usually lasts between three and five years.  While enrolled in school, students have the opportunity to take general and specialized classes to obtain credit for graduation.

Biological & life sciences is an area of science that studies how different processes, such as chemical, physical, and geological, shape how living organisms interact on earth together. Classes may include ecology, physiology, and evolution.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.

BSc Degrees in Life Sciences in Europe 2017/2018. Biochemistry is a pivotal degree discipline in the modern world and a fundamental element of all the biological sciences. Biochemistry is the study of living systems at the molecular level, and biochemists study the ways in which cells and organisms are formed. This involves examining the structure and function of molecules found in living systems, as well as experimental investigations of the properties of biological systems ranging in complexity from cell extracts to whole organisms, and elucidating the roles of specific genes in the cells in which they are expressed. This course will give you the skills and knowledge to establish yourself in a range of careers related to biochemistry, including the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotechnology industries. The foundation of the course is our thriving research in diverse areas of biochemistry including biotechnology, cancer biology, membrane transport, molecular diagnostics and therapeutics, plant biochemistry, and protein structure.

Food Technology (BSc)

Van Hall Larenstein, University of Applied Sciences
Campus Full time 4 years September 2017 Netherlands Velp Leeuwarden + 1 more

Food technologists are innovative, enthusiastic and business-minded people with a passion for food and a comprehensive understanding of the sciences. From chemistry and microbiology to marketing, from engineering to advanced technologies: the interdisciplinary Food Technology Bachelor programme covers all these topics and more! [+]

By choosing the Bachelor in Food Technology, you could become one of the creative food experts who dedicate their career to developing new products and introducing them onto the international food market. The food industry is an industry that most consumers take for granted. Healthier, tastier and innovative food products are appearing on our supermarket shelves almost daily. With this huge product range and the consumers’ increasing demand for variety, the need for food technologists is growing rapidly. Nowadays, consumers increasingly demand healthy, safe and tasty foods. As a food technologist, you analyse consumers and their demands in terms of marketing, product quality and business administration. Market research, knowledge of production processes and product properties, and, perhaps most importantly, understanding what happens in the human body when we consume food, are crucial in developing new foodstuffs. You study the chemical, microbiological and chemical composition of food, while you also dive into the fascinating world of nutrition, flavour, trends, trade and health. This is a fantastic challenge for creative, technically-minded 'foodies'. As there are currently far less graduates than job openings, food technology graduates have the luxury of choice on the job market, which is a big advantage in this day and age. Could you become part of this dynamic and international world? Do you enjoy technological innovation? Would you embrace the challenge of creating safe and healthy products? Are you determined to maintain your personal development, but unable to choose between technology, management and food-marketing? No problem: as a student... [-]

Animal Biology is the integrated study of the enormous variety of animal life on Earth. It examines the evolutionary origins of the various animal groups and their ecology, behaviour and conservation. You can choose to focus mainly on whole animal biology and conservation, or integrate these studies with those investigating more molecular and biochemical aspects of animal biology, such as genetics, cell structure, development and physiology. ‌ Animal biologists attempt to answer important questions such as: how do animals with complex body plans develop from a single cell? Why do many female animals exhibit mate choice? What adaptations help animals cope with life in hostile environments? How do we best conserve rare and endangered animal species? The Animal Biology degree at Stirling offers an exciting and integrated course of study. This subject may be studied in combination with a number of other subjects What makes us different? With so many animal conservation organisations (Bumblebee Conservation Trust, British Trust for Ornithology, Bat Conservation Trust, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, Blair Drummond Safari Park) being based at the University or in the wider Stirling area the is a considerable focus on animal conservation within our course.
