About this program

Medical Sciences

This degree aims to provide a science program related to medicine with strong professional research elements. The course delivers a firm foundation of scientific teaching, considering human health and disease at a micro and macro level and enables students to develop, integrate and apply their knowledge at the interface of scientific discovery and clinical practice. This program equips graduates with a broad skill set that make it a 1st choice for those interested in a Health-based career but who want to keep their options open. It is also an ideal 5th choice for those whose primary aim is Medicine or Dentistry; for high-achieving students this degree may act as a potential stepping stone into Medical Schools as a graduate entrant. Students will benefit from teaching and research expertise across a number of disciplines.
