  • Bachelor of Arts (BA)

    Don’t be taken in by the myths about the BA: come along and find out why it’s a great degree and why it’s so well suited to the current job market. Employers seek the skills of the BA degree, especially critical thinking, creativity, empathy and communication – these are skills that will never go out of fashion.

    HSFY is the essential first step for the five professional programmes: Dentistry, Medical Laboratory Science, Medicine, Pharmacy and Physiotherapy, and is an excellent way to begin degrees in Science, Biomedical Science, or Health Sciences.
