Study programmes include topics such as Biology | Biochemistry | Ecology | Genetics
About the programme
The programme consisting of study and characterization of living organisms and the investigation of the science behind living things. The most biology courses will have core modules focusing on subjects such as cell theory and molecular biology, evolution, physiology and adaptation, gene theory, and homeostasis after which you’ll be able to choose an area in which to specialize such as cell and molecular biology, ecology and evolution, environmental biology, genetics, microbiology, natural science, physiology, and many others.
Teaching methods include lectures, seminars and personal tutorials, practical sessions, guest speakers. This is all arranged in correlation with lectures/ professors. You will also spend a significant amount of time in doing personal study.
Lectures are given in Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian. For exchange students it is possible to organize special consultations in English regarding their work, research, exams, paper work or mentorship. You have to check with the Faculty’s coordinator before applying for this institution.
Assessment is by courseware, classroom tests and examinations. Group learning, teamwork, individual work and communication skills are assessed through design group studies and reports as well as presentations. Practical work is also a part of the examinations.
Degree and qualifications
The first cycle lasts 4 years of study (total of 240 ECTS) in order to obtain the degree of Bachelor.
The second cycle lasts 1 years of study (total of 60 ECTS) and leads to a Master degree.
The third cycle lasts 3 years of study (total of 180 ECTS) in order to obtain the degree of PhD.
Your options as a graduate with a biology degree will largely depend on the level of qualification you attain. While the basic skills developed during an undergraduate biology degree are transferrable to many industries, many of the most sought-after biology careers do require higher levels of academic study.
