Top Online Certificate Programs in Life Sciences 2019 in Europe

Certificate programs, which can be earned in about a year, consist of academic classes that are offered at different skill and ability levels. Undergraduate as well as graduate students, depending on their field of study, may obtain certificates.

Biological & life sciences studies often prepare students for a career in healthcare. Sometimes programs will combine human biology classes with classes in physics, chemistry, and even geology to help students learn how living organisms work together.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Nowadays we have become increasingly skeptical towards the cosmetic products we use and the chemicals we expose ourselves to. Since flora biodiversity (or biological diversity) on Earth is enormous, a great number of these aromatic and medicinal plants can be used for cosmetic purposes.

People have been using natural products since the dawn of human history. Only toward the end of the 19th century, however, have we started to know something about the chemistry of some of these products. With our increasing knowledge of chemistry and related sciences, we have begun to duplicate some of the natural chemicals and at the same time make modifications in these compounds, or sometimes produce completely new ones....

Herbs! Flavorful plants used as medicine, seasoning or flavoring. They add a pinch of excitement to the art of cooking. Herbs are contained in numerous products that we use every day. Let's read some labels: mint toothpaste, shampoo with chamomile, aloe cream, cough syrup with echinacea, etc. As plant-derived or organic ingredients they can be found in hot drinks, pastries, insect repellents, and hair dyes. Because of their multiple uses and beneficial properties, they are often included in cooking, medicine, cosmetics, and gardening. Imagine how life would be if herbs did not exist. Odourless? Colourless?

Last few days to enrol!

Agriculture and food regulation is no longer primarily the responsibility of states, but implies common rules, common principles and common regulators extended to the world scale. In addition, it is multidimensional, implying a balanced protection of several interests and values. These two aspects raise several problems of a legal, cultural and political nature.

Through a vertical comparison of different food safety regulatory systems students will study the main issues of food safety regulation and different strategies and approaches for analysing them. Students will learn about institutions and agreements such as the World Health Organization, Codex Alimentarius, International Organization for Standards, International Plant Protection Convention and the World Organization for Animal Health, so as to understand their role in international agri-food policy, especially food safety policy. This Specialisation also defines food safety law and regulation in the international legal space focusing on linkages to World Trade Organization (WTO) law.... [-]
