Description of course of studies

The work of biologists overlaps that of pharmaceutical chemists, biochemists, veterinarians, agronomists and other graduates in subjects closely related to biology, and biological research is conducted in a wide range of fields, such as molecular biology, biochemistry, immunobiology, microbiology, genetics, cell biology, morphology, taxonomy, animal and plant physiology, behavioral biology and ecology. Work of a more practical nature is done in the fields of environmental protection, animal and plant production, plant pathology and pest control, the food and brewing industries, pharmaceutics, pharmacology and forest and fishing biology. A degree in biology opens up careers in teaching and research, as well as public authorities, various industries, mapping offices, publishing houses, and so on.

Major fields of study

Botanics, Zoology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Applied Ecology, Technology of Biology Minor subjects: once the basic part of the course has been completed, students study one major subject and two minor ones.

Application period for winter semester: 01.04. - 31.05.
Application period for summer semester: 01.11. – 15.01.
Our online application portal will create a checklist with documents you have to hand in. The checklist shows which documents you need for admission and which for enrollment.

You must submit the signed application form and all documents you need for admission before the application deadline, i.e. before 31.05. for winter semester and before 15.01. for summer semester.

You must submit all documents you need for enrollment before 15.09. for winter semester or before 15.03. for summer semester. If individual documents for enrollment are not available at that date, you can hand them in up to five weeks after the start of the lecture period. However, we recommend that you submit all required documents well before the semester begins, as you will not be enrolled until all documents have been received.
