  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 in Biology from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

1. Overview of Programme

This Joint Degree Programme (JDP) combines the Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Life Sciences offered by the Faculty of Science, NUS, and Bachelor of Science in Biology offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH), and is designed to be completed in four years, to be taught in NUS and UNC-CH. It brings together the strengths of both universities’ undergraduate curricula, integrates overseas experience into the undergraduate studies, and awards a jointly validated Bachelor of Science degree qualification. NUS students will complete the requirements for an Honours class while UNC-CH students will have the option to pursue (or not to pursue) the Honours class.

2. Admissions

Students in NUS Faculty of Science with a primary Major in Life Sciences may apply to enter this programme at the end of the first year. All applicants will undergo a selection process and an interview to assess their academic performance, and aptitude and suitability for the programme, as well as other relevant criteria.

3. Continuation and Exit from the Programme

NUS students in this JDP must maintain a CAP of 4.00 or above (out of 5.00) for the BSc (Hons) degree. A student whose CAP falls below 4.00 for two consecutive semesters will be required to leave the programme, resulting in termination to the JDP participation. The student may then resume and complete the default BSc (Hons) degree in NUS.

NUS students in this programme can also choose to withdraw and continue with the default BSc degree study.

The withdrawal and termination processes will follow the prevailing practices of the home university. Students who withdraw or are terminated from the programme would only transfer the credits but not grades of the modules read at the partner university.
