Choose A Code Training and Learning Results
  A1 Students should prove understanding and knowledge in this study field that starts in the Secundary Education and with a level that, even though it is suppported in advanced books, also includes some aspects that involve knowledge from the vanguard of the study field.
  A2 Students should know how to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way. They also should have the competences that are usually proved through the elaboration and defence of arguments and the resolution of problems within their study field.
  A3 Students should prove ability for information-gathering and interpret important data (usually within their study field) to judge relevant social, scientific or ethical topics.
  A4 Students should able to communicate information, ideas, issues and solutions to all audiences (specialist and unskilled audience).
  A5 Students should develop the necessary learning skills to undertake further studies with a high degree of autonomy
Choose B Code Knowledge
  B1 Ability of organization and planning in the working area in a multidisciplinary environment relate to biology and other connected fields.
  B2 Ability of reading and analizing scientific papers and having critical assessment skills to understand data collection, deducing the main idea from the least relevant ones and basing on the correponding conclusions.
  B3 Acquisition of general knowledge about the basic subjects of biology, both at theory and experimental level, without dismissing a higher specialization in subjects that are oriented to a concrete professional area.
  B4 Ability in handling experimental tools, both scientific and computer technology equipment that support the search for solutions to problems related to the basic knowledge of biology and with those of a concrete labour context.
  B5 Understanding of the levels of organization of living beings from a structural (molecular, cellular and organic) and functional point of view by observing their relations with the environment and other organisms, as well as their appearances in situations of environmental alteration.
  B6 Ability to use biological knowledge obtained with this degree in a professional context by reasoning and presenting the ideas clearly, backed up and based on a solid general and specific education.
  B7 Collection of information about issues of biologic interest, analysis and emission of critical opinions and reason them including the reflection about social and/or ethical aspects related to the issue.
  B8 Ability to draft and write independent reports or projects related to the biological field. Communicate through verbal or written presentations and develop a logical argument in a professional context where it is shown skills acquired in this degree program.
  B9 Motivation to achieve innovative and proactive actions based on accomplished background from courses attended, background from current topics checked ( I+D) (Research and Development, Environment, Biomedicine, Bio production...) and background obtained from internships made in the business network.
  B10 Development of analytic and abstraction skills, the intuition and the logical and rigorous thought through the study of biology and its uses.
  B11 Ability to communicate in detail and clearly: knowledge, methodology, ideas, issues and solutions to all audiences (not only qualified but unskilled in Biology).
  B12 Ability to identify their own educational necessities in the biology field and in concrete labour areas and to organize their learning with a high grade of autonomy in any context.
