Best Bachelors in Molecular Biology in Netherlands 2017. Bachelor in Life Sciences The medical and pharmaceutical industry is constantly looking for new ways to prevent and cure diseases. Plant development companies try to develop new ways to optimise the growth and production of crops. Environmental companies look for innovative solutions to environmental problems. Dedicated professionals working in laboratories all over the world are at the heart of this research. Become one of them by studying Life Sciences at HAN! 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. Many of our Life Sciences graduates work in molecular biology research labs, for example. You can also choose to continue your studies. HAN's Life Sciences graduates often go on to successfully complete Masters degree courses.
