This degree allows you to study in two leading universities in the field of life sciences, spending the first part of your degree in Dundee, Scotland and the second part in Singapore at the National University of Singapore (NUS).

You will learn key theories - from molecular level to full body systems - to understand the field as a whole.

Your first five semesters (till halfway through Level 3) are spent at the University of Dundee and will cover core concepts including genetics, cell biology, biological organisation, molecular mechanisms and processes. You’ll develop practical skills, including laboratory skills, data analysis, and how to design and run experiments. This will prepare you for carrying out projects later in your course.

Semesters 6-8 (the last 18 months of this degree) will be spent at NUS, where you’ll focus on a specialism from a choice of genetic medicine, neurobiology or physiology and ageing – all of which are important issues relevant to human health.

The benefits of this course include gaining a strong grounding in both biological and biomedical sciences and learning and experiencing the culture of two very different countries. It will also give you opportunities to network and collaborate with others and see where your degree can take you once you complete your studies.

Laboratory sessions throughout your degree will help integrate your knowledge and practical skills, as well as develop strong transferable skills, both in and out of the lab.
