The Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences (BBiomedSc) degree provides students with a sound foundation in the scientific principles underpinning biomedical research and thus our current understanding of health and disease. A defining feature of this degree is its interdisciplinary nature with students able to select papers from multiple contributing Departments. The BBiomedSc is a springboard for advanced study and a diverse range of careers including research, health services, and professional programmes.
Why study Reproduction, Genetics and Development?
The key answer is because you are interested in, and motivated by, the science that will allow us to improve human health. Our Reproduction, Genetics and Development students have a reputation for excellence and are sought-after by a wide range of employers both here in New Zealand and overseas.
One of the key objectives in current biomedical science research is to understand the interplay between our genes and physiology during reproduction and development. In simple terms, how do our genes guide our development and what happens when this goes astray?
In this major, you will examine the biology of reproduction, embryo formation and development, and the genetics underlying these events.
You will also have the opportunity to explore key anatomical and genetic techniques.
We recognise many other qualifications as equivalent to the New Zealand qualification for entrance.
