Programme Introduction

Biomedical sciences cover a wide range of scientific and allied disciplines. The study of biomedical sciences mainly focuses on the relationships between humans, health, and disease, translating biomedical applications of basic sciences to the clinical practices of health services and healthcare industry.

The BBiomedSc curriculum is designed with a good balance of structure and flexibility, allowing students to plan their study straddling sciences and humanities. Students will be exposed to a wide range of learning experiences, varying with courses they are enrolled in. These experiences include traditional lectures, laboratory practicals, problem-based learning tutorials, web-based learning as well as research projects.

What You’ll Study

The focus of the Biomedical Sciences core courses is to cover:

  • the structures and functions of the human body and the processes that are essential to life
  • the basic principles of the processes, mechanisms, patterns of diseases and concepts of therapeutic strategies
  • the essential analytical methodologies and the state of the art of contemporary information technology in the field of biomedical sciences

In the last year of study, students are required to undertake a final year project. The Final Year Project constitutes a capstone experience for students, allowing them to integrate their knowledge and apply experimental and informatics skills to solve defined problems by research.
