Licence degree in Science, Technology and Health, majoring in Life and Earth Sciences
Type of course: Biology, Health and Environment

The SVT Licence is a 3-year generalist course. It was built to meet the expectations of a maximum of students interested in the disciplines offered, 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 the University of Avignon, the "Agrosciences and Sciences" axis. Within this framework, students are made aware of scientific research from L1.


The Biology Health Environment course is individualised through specific courses and courses shared with the other two L3 courses (courses in the field of life with the AGRO course and cross-disciplinary courses with the AGRO and STE courses).

The objective is to consolidate and deepen the theoretical and practical knowledge in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, microbiology and animal physiology acquired in L1 and L2. This course also provides, through options (ecophysiology, ecotoxicology, pharmacology and initiation to pathologies of major functions, biotechnology, bioinformatics and omics techniques), the knowledge necessary for further study in masters degrees in Biology-Health and Environmental Sciences at other universities.


Voluntary internship possible each semester.

Compulsory internship in L3 S6.
