Higher Diploma in Biomedical Science
The Higher Diploma in Biomedical Science programme is specifically designed for students who are interested in the Biological Sciences and
its practical applications, particularly in the cases of healthcare and research. Throughout the Biomedical Science programme, students
will study life processes (structure and function of the human body) to gain an understanding of health and the methods for diagnosing,
analysing, and treating disease. This programme also develops transferrable skills including laboratory techniques, data analysis,
interpersonal and teamwork skills, and IT, preparing the students for further study or employment in the Biomedical Science field.
Subjects covered in the programme are broadly similar to the pre-clinical components of a medical degree with the addition of Molecular
Biology, Statistics, Pharmacology and Laboratory Management.
