During the 3rd semester, the student takes four mandatory courses (Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Mathematics) as well as a course called the “General Course” which includes Information technology and communication (ITC), Methods of separation and skill improvement. Moreover, the student will have the choice between two extra courses : physics or genetics.
The “General Course” prepares students to the C2i which is to be taken in L2, provides them with analytical skills in order to analyze experimental data, to better define his/her project and choose the adequate track (allows everyone to better choose their track during the fourth semester).
After having completed this semester, students will have acquired a good enough baggage in chemistry, biology, biochemistry, physics and mathematics and with the help of the skill improvement that they underwent, they will in turn be able to start choosing a specialization.
The 4th semester is the first of the most important ones of their undergraduate studies where students will have to choose 3 courses out of 5 for 6 credits and one course out of 5 for 3 credits.
The General Course course includes :
Teaching of scientific English
A transdisciplinary course called TRANS1 : Spectroscopy
The professional project of the student (PPE) : its aim is to explore a professional field and job through a bibliographic research and by interviewing (in groups) professionals in the field being explored. The student will learn how to lead a project, how to become autonomous, how to search for the right information, how to write and present a report, how to speak in front of an audience and how to manage group work. Students have the possibility to replace the PPE by the SME* course which prepares students who wish to pursue a master’s degree in education, or validate the EE** course, or sport.
The choice of 3 courses for 6 credits between biology, chemistry, biochemistry, physics and physiology is to prepare the student to choose between the chemistry track or the biology track during the fifth semester.
One course of 3 credits amongst biostatistics, chemistry of natural substances, quantum mechanics, crystallography and regulation of gene expression will allow the student to enhance his knowledge on certain aspects. However, none of the latter courses will be decisive in the choice of the track that the student will pursue during the fifth semester.
*SME = Sensibilisation aux Métiers de l’Enseignement (to get the students acquainted with teaching on a professional level)
**EE = Engagement Etudiant Engagement Etudiant (possibility of earning credits through the student’s commitment within the faculty)
The L2 program is made up of 11 courses (called UE* in French) for a total of 60 credits (called ECTS**), divided into two semesters : S3 and S4.
S3 is made up of a total of 30 credits of : :

It is mandatory that the registration of courses be done via intranet at the beginning of each semester (including the practical sessions as well as the lab sessions).
If you are registering for the first time, it is mandatory that you first activate your account. Your identification number or login can be found on the cardboard document given with your student ID card. If it is your first time registering, your ID number should start with ieXXXX (where X are numbers).
In order for students to be assigned to their groups in Lab Sessions (TP), regular classes (TD) and Information technology and communication (ITC) sessions, registration is mandatory at the beginning of each semester.
Under special circumstances (such as students who have a job or a specific medical problem) and according to the possibility of doing so, students will be able to choose which groups to belong to (and therefore adapt their timetable) but only after showing a proper justification.
Students who don’t register will not be accepted into TP, TD nor ICT sessions and the switching of groups will not be permitted.
A. Attendance in Lab Sessions is MANDATORY
WARNING : be careful not to miss registration dates (if you do, you will be marked absent even if you are attending the lab session).
B. In case of absence at a lab sessions :
WARNING If your absence is not justified with a proof of absence, you will get a ZERO for the lab session. The final grade obtained for the Lab Session will be transferred to the make up session report in case the student has to go to the makeup session.
Professors In charge of the lab sessions are :
Faculty of Basic and Biomedical Sciences, 45 rue des Saints-Pères 75006 Paris
L2 kick-off meeting : Thursday the 10th of September 2015 in the Weiss Amphitheatre (Faculty of Basic and Biomedical Sciences).
FIRST SEMESTER (14 weeks) : from Monday the 14th of September 2015 to Saturday the 19th of December 2015
SECOND SEMESTER (13 weeks) : from Monday the 18th of January 2016 to Saturday the 16th of April 2016
