Biology, Molecular biology and Bioinformatics

We offer a wide variety of courses in biology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics. For the majority of our advanced level courses, the language of instruction is English, while it is Swedish for the courses at basic level (bachelor's level). If you are studying at the final year of your bachelor's programme, you may take advanced level courses. Check the prerequisites for each course.
Most of our courses are offered full-time and on campus. You are generally not supposed to take more than one full-time course at a time.

The academic year is divided into an autumn and a spring term. The terms are divided two periods; period 1 and period 2.

A 15 credits course lasts for one period. Full-time courses of 7.5 credits are either offered during the first (a) or the second (b) part of the period. A few of our courses are given part time, usually at 50 % speed over a whole period.
