The study programme in Biology gives you a fundamental understanding of biological processes and the interrelationships between all living things. This practice-based programme ranges from a basic knowledge of the species in key organism groups through to modelling. It provides you with the tools you need to overcome the global challenges of our times.
Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
You are inquisitive, open-minded and ready to learn. You will enjoy this study programme if you are interested in biological processes and joined-up thinking.
Entry to the bachelor’s programme in Biology is selective and you will need to complete the admission process.
The admission process takes place only once a year, for enrolment in the winter and summer semesters of the relevant academic year.
If no admission examination is held, you will need to demonstrate a qualification in biology or in biology combined with other subjects (secondary school leaving examination, supplementary examination).
Biology at the University of Graz
This study programme teaches you theory and practice from the fields of biodiversity and habitats, ecology and conservation, physiology and regulation, behaviour and neurobiology, genetics and molecular biology, as well as models and simulation. A broad spectrum of possibilities for in-depth studies round off your education and optimally prepare you for a master’s programme that builds on what you have already learned.
Your options in the master’s programme
The master’s programmes in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Plant Sciences and Behavioural Physiology build directly on the bachelor’s programme, enhancing and developing on what you have already learned. At the University of Graz you also have the option of interdisciplinary master’s programmes and joint programmes, allowing further scope for individualised and specialised learning.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
As a graduate of the bachelor’s programme, you will have gained a broad-based education that will equip you for a wide range of biology-related careers in private and public sector companies and institutions. These include research and development work in the life sciences, environmental protection and conservation, museums and scientific collections, botanical gardens and zoos, agriculture and forestry, government and public administration, and science communication and adult education.
