Biology takes us into the world of the living
Training in biology consists in understanding what composes living organisms – whether called bacteria, flies, algae, human or otherwise -, how they function and develop, how they reproduce and evolve, how they interact with the outside world, how they were able to appear, how they become extinct.
During his/her basic training, the future biologist thus studies a variety of disciplines that he/she will complete in the last year by more specialized branches, according to his/her own choices.
Thanks to the large variety of courses proposed within the training, but also with practical work in the field, in the laboratory or in front of a computer, the biology student acquires a solid scientific training in this area.
