A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an academic degree that combines general coursework with specialized classes that prepare students with the knowledge and skills to begin a career. A degree can be earned in a variety of subjects and takes an average of four years to complete.
Natural sciences are a scientific branch that deals with observations, understanding and predictions of natural phenomena. It is a diverse field and includes disciplines such as biological science, physics, chemistry, Earth science and astronomy.
In Brazil, there are three types of degree: Bachelors - takes between four to six years to complete and students can work as teachers after finishing four years of research. Masters - takes one to two years to achieve; Doctoral/PhD - the highest degree you can study and takes three to four years to achieve. These three degrees loosely correspond to the three cycles of the Bologna Process - the European system of higher education. This means that if you have achieved an undergraduate degree at a European university, you should be qualified to achieve a Masters in Brazil.
