Biomedical Science is an applied science in Malaysia that studies biology in more minute sense such as learning how cells, organs, systems and tissues function and affect the other parts of the body.
Are you curious about how DNA works in a human body? Or how do humans get sick? (apart from living an unhealthy lifestyle). And how do people get inherited diseases from their ancestors if they’ve already passed away? If all these questions are on your mind, then Biomedical Science is what you’ve been looking for. Stick around to uncover why studying this course in Malaysia might be the one for you.

This course heavily relies on Biology and Chemistry so if you’re into these subjects and love doing research, this one’s for you.
Becoming a Biomedical Scientist is only one of the options you can be once you graduate. There are many other careers you can step into, such as the healthcare industry, clinical, toxicology, immunology, diagnostic, scientific researches, hematology, medicinal and forensic laboratories, clinical biochemistry, education, management, genetics, biomedical apparatus, pharmaceutical sales and many more.
Ever heard of animal and human cloning and how it goes against their legal rights? But why, you ask? Well, you will find out exactly how to clone and why is it wrong to clone another human with a degree in Biomedical Science.
The medical field is not only for doctors. A Biomedical Science graduate will be able to play a huge role in genetics that will greatly affect what doctors do. Biomedical Scientists are the ones to find out new diseases and potential cures, hence, influencing how other medical professionals practice in their field.

Minimum CGPA of 2.5 in Biology and Chemistry
Minimum Grade D in TWO of the following subjects:
At least Grade B on 3 subjects inclusive of 1 Science subject
Tertiary Entrance Rank of 70 and Grade B in 2 of the relevant subjects
Canadian (CIMP/ICPU) :
Average of 70% in 6 of the relevant subjects
CGPA of 2.5 or above
Diploma recognised by the university’s senate
Important Note: If you opt to study a Diploma in Biomedical Science and continue your degree at the same institution, you will most likely get a one-year exemption. This means that you can enter degree year 2 after diploma. .
Do you enjoy working together in a team where you help each other out? Do you like listening to people’s ideas and be amazed at how you never thought of that before? Well, a Biomedical Scientist should always be part of a medical team whether you’re in a hospital or a lab. Having to work with people is inevitable in life but if you enjoy it, then you already have one of the skills to study Biomedical Science.
Collecting samples and analysing data play a huge role in a Biomedical Scientist’s job. This is why being meticulous is vital so you properly inspect those tiny germs and create chemical solutions to treat illnesses.
You’ll need to be analytical as you’ll be doing a lot of laboratory and scientific tests on tissue samples and fluids. Besides that, you also need to evaluate the effectiveness of treatments before Pharmacists prescribe it to patients. Part of your job is to work on medical conditions such as cancer, AIDS, diabetes, screening for diseases, etc. at hospital departments so your analytical skills will come in handy.
