*Due to complications stemming from COVID-19, course plans are subject to change. We apologize for any inconvenience.
**C11 will take place in two parts – the first part will be held March 8-10 and the second part will take place May 4-5. C12 will be held in April, between the two parts of C11. Students who intend to take both C11 and C12 this semester will be able to do so following this schedule.
***C10: Protein red-ox chemistry is also scheduled to be held in Spring 2021, but as this course requires on-site presence, final determination regarding its feasibility will be made at a later date.

BioCat aims to arrange approximately 4 credit-based courses per semester. Most courses repeat every 2-3 years.

Student members travel to the university hosting the course for 1-3 weeks, allowing them to network and learn techniques that may not be available at their own university. In corona times, we strive to make as many courses digitally accessible as possible.

We also arrange several non-credited transferable skills workshops throughout the year. These workshops usually focus on improving certain real-life abilities that are important in the academic/scientific world.
