Life Sciences

A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an undergraduate course of study that takes students three to five years to complete.  While in school, students complete a variety of courses to prepare for additional education or future job opportunities.

In regards to the study of biological & life sciences, students may focus on one aspect of natural science or study how they work together, such as the environment and human health or biology and geology.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.
