Biology, Molecular biology and Bioinformatics

We offer a wide variety of courses in biology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics. For the majority of our intermediate and advanced courses, the language of instruction is English, while it is Swedish for our courses at the bachelor's level. Most of our courses are full-time courses and you are generally not supposed to take more than one course at a time.

Here we have gathered short overviews of our courses, course literature and links to the most recent schedule.



The academic year is divided into an autumn and a spring semester, both divided once again into two periods.

A 15 credits course lasts for one period. Full-time courses of 7.5 credits are either offered during the first or the second part of the period.
