Course Structure Diagram


This interuniversity bachelor’s degree programme, in conjunction with the University of Padua and the University of Bologna, adopts an advanced, innovative, multidisciplinary approach to life science research and to the interaction between human health and the environment.
The first two years cover general biologic principles, human anatomy and physiology, disease mechanisms, and advanced methods in biomedical research. In the third year, students can choose to enrol in one of the two curricula: biological bases of human diseases (Padua) or environmental influences on human health (Bologna).
