Licence degree in Sciences, Technologies and Health with a major in Life and Earth Sciences
Type of course: Agrosciences

The Licence SVT is a 3-year generalist course. It was built to meet the expectations of a maximum of students interested in the proposed disciplines, whatever their level.

The training is built in different Teaching Units (UE) allowing a progressive orientation from the first (L1) to the third year (L3) thanks to the choice of options in L2. The specialization is done in L3 by the choice of the course:

  • Agrosciences course (AGRO)
  • Biology, Health and Environment (BSE)
  • Earth and Water Sciences (STE)
The SVT Licence is integrated into one of the two thematic research axes developed and supported at Avignon University, the "Agrosciences and Sciences" axis. Within this framework, students are made aware of scientific research from L1.


The Agrosciences course enables students to acquire multidisciplinary skills relating to the interactions between plants and their biotic and abiotic environment. The course is individualized through specific courses (agronomy, plant protection, etc.) and courses shared with the BSE course (genetic engineering, biochemistry, cell cycle) and with the BSE and STE courses (environmental sciences, English, statistical tools).
