Course summary

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 to 8 (the last 18 months of this degree) will be spent at National University of Singapore (NUS). This will be dependent on how you progress through the course. At this point of the course, you’ll focus on a specialism from a choice of:

  • genetic medicine
  • neurobiology
  • physiology and ageing
All which are important issues relevant to human health.
