All courses, with exception of the lectures, have an immanent examination character. The orientation phase serves the orientation of the students and consists of different compulsory and elective modules which provide the structure for the subsequent semesters. Special focuses are set in the fields of botany, zoology, microbiology, molecular biology and ecology. The learning of practice-oriented skills is facilitated by practical courses, excursions and introductory seminars. To complete the degree programme a bachelor thesis must be written. Students can choose the topic for this thesis themselves; it, however, must contain subject matters from certain compulsory modules.
