Medical Sciences

Since the 1970s, the School has been offering a variety of programmes focusing on professional training in the fields of Medical Laboratory Science, Microbiology Testing and Laboratory Management, ranging from introductory level to master’s degrees.  Some of these courses emphasize on laboratory work, and this distinguishes us from other self-financed continuing education providers. All programmes are taught by dedicated and actively practicing professionals to ensure the academic quality of our programmes. This may explain why we are the leading part-time professional training provider in biomedical sciences.
