The Biochemistry Bachelor Programme (BBP) extends over 3 years, with 60 credits each year, in a total of 180 credits. Each credit corresponds to 28 hours of learning, including lectures, problem-solving sessions, laboratory classes, seminars, and other learning activities as well as individual study.
The Programme prepares the students to immediately integrate the European biochemistry / chemistry-related market, or to access a 2nd cycle of studies if their option is a major specialization.
All teaching activities of the BBP take place at the NOVA School of Science and Technology, mainly at the Department of Chemistry.
The BBP curriculum provides the following general objectives: a) A solid background in Biochemistry and Chemistry; b) a recognised equivalence with other Cycles from European institutions that offer the same degree; c) an immediate access to other training degrees from National or European institutions; d) acquisition of the generic competences and basic knowledge in Biochemistry/Chemistry that enables the new bachelor graduate to enter the European biochemistry/chemistry-related market, including industrial and government laboratories.

The Department of Chemistry is a permanent organic unity of the NOVA School of Science and Technology, devoted to teaching, to scientific research and to provide services in areas of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Chemical Engineering. The Chemistry Department (DQ, founded in 1981, has recognized market implementation in education and employment, particularly so because of the novelty and specificity introduced by the course in Applied Chemistry with which teaching at the School of Chemistry began.More info
