What does a typical day/week look like in the Bachelor´s Programme in Biomedicine?

Every course and every week in the Biomedicine Bachelor’s look different. That’s one of the best things about it! Some things are present throughout though. Lab practicals and lectures are an integral part of the courses, although in different proportions. In addition, most weeks will include seminars or time set aside for individual studies. Most courses also include a group project for which group work time both with and without teacher assistance is allotted. You can expect to encounter several of these in a typical day or week.

In every course, there are a few mandatory sessions, while the others are highly recommended. Labs, exams, and project presentations tend to be mandatory.
