Otago Medical School's Christchurch and Wellington campuses each offer this one-year postgraduate honours programme to students who have completed and performed well in a Bachelor of Biomedical Science (BBiomedSc) or Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree from Otago, or other universities in approved disciplines.
The Bachelor of Biomedical Science with Honours (BBiomedSc(Hons)) programme is an excellent stepping-stone to a career in research, diagnostics, or biotechnology—or to PhD study in a range of areas including:
- Cancer biology
- Cell biology
- Molecular biology
- Infectious diseases
The focus of the BBiomedSc(Hons) programme is hands-on training in scientific research that will develop the skills and attitudes required to enable graduates to progress to a PhD programme or to other careers.
