The Department of Biomedical Sciences was established in January 2014 to develop strategic growth areas in the life sciences. It has the aim of becoming a leading centre for biomedical education and cutting-edge research on cancer, neuroscience and regenerative medicine. Besides carrying out internationally competitive research in the biomedical sciences, promotes interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary collaboration, and conducts translational research from bench to bedside, the Department provides programmes that best equip graduates for future careers in healthcare, pharmaceutical, biotech and related industries. It currently offers programmes in a stimulating teaching, learning and research environment.
The Department of Biomedical Sciences offers two undergraduate majors:
The Biomedical Sciences major emphasizes the integration of basic fundamental knowledge in biomedical sciences with investigative skills and state-of-the-art technologies to enable students to understand the causes, diagnoses and treatments of human disorders and disease. The programme is designed to prepare graduates for employment in biomedical research, medical device and diagnostics and biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Our unique industry-informed curriculum provides students with extensive exposure to medical laboratory technology and modern biotechnology, and applied research and clinical/industrial training opportunities through our strategic partnership with the healthcare and medical laboratory sectors and biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
Applicants to this programme (admission code: 1807) will be considered for admission to first-year studies in the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences programme.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements.
