Why in Parma?

The course is housed in the Department of Chemical, Life and Environmental Sustainability Sciences (SCVSA), selected by MUR (Ministry of University and Research) as "Department of Excellence" for the five-year periods 2018-2022 and 2023-2027 consecutively, testifying to the high quality of the research and teaching.

Through the course you will acquire the basic knowledge in the main fields of Biology and multidisciplinary methodologies and technologies for biological investigation, as well as operational and applied skills in the field of biology.

The course has an optimal student-teachers ratio, which is essential for assuring a high quality of teaching, as evidenced by the high degree of satisfaction among enrolled students,  and for facilitating day-to-day relations with lecturers.

At the end of the three-year course you will have the cultural and technical/practical tools (also thanks to the pre-degree internship in university laboratories, at companies or organisations in Italy and abroad) to successfully continue your studies by enrolling in the Master's degree and/or to enter the workplace.
