Life Sciences

A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an undergraduate degree that prepares students for a career in their field of study. While the degree is often related to courses in the realm of science, students in non-science fields can also earn a BSc.

Biological & life sciences studies often prepare students for a career in healthcare. Sometimes programs will combine human biology classes with classes in physics, chemistry, and even geology to help students learn how living organisms work together.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.
