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 life and biomedical science. The Department provides programmes that best equip graduates for future careers in healthcare, pharmaceutical, biotech and related industries. It currently offers two undergraduate majors, MSc in Health Sciences and Management, and MPhil and PhD research degree 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 and diagnoses and treatments of human disorders and diseases. The programme is designed to prepare graduates for employment in medical & diagnostic laboratories, medical device & biotech/pharmaceutical industries and research. Our unique industry-informed curriculum provides students with extensive exposure to medical laboratory technology (MLT), modern biotechnology, and medical lab/industrial training opportunities through our strategic partnership with the healthcare and medical laboratory sectors as well as biotech & pharmaceutical industries.
JUPAS applicants to this programme (admission code: JS1807) 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 minimum entrance requirements.
