Postgraduate Diploma in Science and Honours degrees in Biochemistry at Otago

There are four one-year postgraduate degrees offered by the Department of Biochemistry:

The choice of degree depends on a student's undergraduate history, interests and what the student intends to eventually use the degree for.

All courses except BBiomedSc(Hons) require students to complete four coursework papers, and students are each given a different research project to work on over the year, under the mentorship of an academic staff member. The results of the research are written up as a dissertation.

Students with high marks (A average) in a BSc(Hons) degree can qualify for a scholarship and immediate entry to the PhD programme.
