The PhD can vary depending on the institution and country in which it is awarded. Most scholars pursue a PhD because of strong motivation to contribute to the academic community as well as true curiosity about their chosen field of study.
In order to learn more about life and what we know about it, one may be interested in entering a program in the Biological and Life Sciences. There are numerous potential programs to enter within such a broad field.
Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.
