  Home / NUS Bulletin AY2020/21 / Faculty of Science / Undergraduate Education / Multidisciplinary Opportunities / Joint Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Life Sciences from National University of Singapore and Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biological Sciences/Biomedical Sciences from University of Dundee

1. Overview of Programme

This Joint Degree Programme (JDP) combining Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Life Sciences offered by the Faculty of Science (FoS), NUS, and Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biological Sciences/Biomedical Sciences offered by the School of Life Sciences, University of Dundee (UoD), is designed to be completed in four years, and taught in NUS and UoD. The Programme combines the strengths of both universities’ undergraduate curricula, integrates overseas experience into the undergraduate studies, and awards a jointly validated BSc (Hons) degree qualification.

NUS students in this JDP will complete the degree requirements as per that of the NUS BSc (Hons) degree in Life Sciences. Participants will spend the first two-and-a-half years in NUS before moving to and staying at UoD for three regular semesters (i.e. the 6th to 8th semesters inclusive of their course of undergraduate study). This study abroad segment thus includes the Honours year.

2. Admissions

Students in NUS Faculty of Science with primary Major in Life Sciences may apply to enter this programme in the first year. Life Sciences Major students in the senior years may apply but the study plan may deviate as scheduled. All applicants will undergo a selection process and an interview to assess their academic competencies, aptitude and suitability for the programme, as well as other relevant criteria.

3. Continuation and Exiting the Programme

NUS students in this JDP must maintain a CAP of 3.50 or above (out of 5.00) for the BSc (Hons) degree. A student whose CAP falls below 3.50 for any semester will be required to leave the programme, resulting in termination to the JDP participation. The student may then resume and complete the default BSc or BSc (Hons) degree in NUS, the latter if the student meets the Honours year requirements and wishes to pursue Honours class.

NUS students in this programme can also choose to withdraw and continue with the default BSc or BSc (Hons) degree study, the latter if the student meets the Honours requirements and wishes to pursue Honours class.
