Are you curious about biology and chemistry? In that case the one-year programme of study will give you an overview of these diciplines. This is a programme for those of you who are interested in biology and chemistry, but also for those who want a relevant academic background for medical- or veterinary studies.

The one-year programme of study in biology and chemistry gives practical and theoretical knowledge of basic biology and chemistry, focusing on organic chemistry and molecular cell biology.

The target group is students from upper secondary school with an interest in biology, chemistry, and/or biotechnology. You can expand the one-year programme into a bachelor's degree in biology or chemistry or a master in biotechnology. In order to do this, you must apply for admission to one of the bachelor's studies through the Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service, NUCAS (Samordna opptak). The subjects from the one-year study will then be integrated into your bachelor's degree.

Job prospects
The one-year programme of study is supposed to compliment other studies, or to be a pre-study making it possible to decide whether or not you want to continue your studies in biology, chemistry or biotechnology.
