Why Biology?

Biology is the science of life. Biologists have improved and saved human lives through several life-changing discoveries including the discovery of the first antibiotic, Human genome mapping, Stem cells, Robotic limbs and many others. As Research projects continue to advance, more breakthroughs in Biology become possible every single day. Research on Cancer therapy, Gene editing, neurodegenerative and other life-threatening diseases is continuously offering ground-breaking findings paving the way for new drug development bringing hope to patients and families around the world.

Why Biology at UOBD?

1- Pre-Medical Studies: Pathway to MCAT

UOBD follows the North American model in the design of its programs and curricula. Therefore, students who are interested in applying for admission to a medical school must earn an undergraduate degree (Bachelor), complete Pre-Medical (Pre-Med) Studies course requirements, and sit for and pass the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) in order to become eligible for admission to medical schools.

2- Active Learning

  • All our Biology courses whether General Biology or advanced courses like Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Immunology, Physiology, Ecology are all interactive courses whereby students are fully engaged in the scientific discussions and in asking the right questions. Our students are partners in their own learning.
  • We continuously aim at boosting our students’ creativity, analytical and critical skills. We push them to think like scientists and train them to confidently present and communicate their ideas.
  • This is also reflected in our assessments where we test their understanding not their memory. That is how they learn how to use and apply the information in their future careers.

3- Real Life experiments/Hands-on learning

At UOBD, we are committed to provide our students with a successful and enjoyable learning journey using modern technologies and offering state-of-the-art labs where they can explore, apply and master the scientific knowledge of the courses.

4- Small class sizes

For us, every student counts and individual focus and development is crucial. We closely monitor the progress of our students leveraging their strengths and making sure we fulfill any gaps, for them to excel moving forward.
