Global Pathways to New Zealand:

Study options
Students will be able to apply for entry to the Otago Bachelor of Biomedical Science Programme after completing five semesters (2.5 years) at Republic Polytechnic, and will graduate following a further two years of successful full-time study at the University of Otago (2.5 years + 2 years).
New Zealand Qualification
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.

Entry criteria

Pathway Summary
