BSc in Biomedical Sciences

All students who successfully complete the courses of Years 1-4 (i.e., Phases I and II of the MD programme) will be awarded a BSc in Biomedical Sciences. This degree will offer an opportunity to students who either do not want or cannot progress from Phase II to Phase III of their studies to have a BSc degree that will help them follow a different career option.
