MDIS School of Life Sciences

The MDIS School of Life Sciences was the first of its kind among Private Education Institutions in Singapore. Our life science school continues to open doors for people who wish to pursue their passion in the rich, diverse and fascinating field of biomedical research in Singapore.

This is especially pertinent in the dawn of the post-genomic era of personalised medicine and gene editing. In addition to developing subject-based expertise and skills in medicine, life science and biomedicine in our school, the content of the courses are relevant and applicable to both the international and local communities of students in Singapore.

Our life science school in Singapore offers up-to-date and rigorous programmes, offered in partnership with Northumbria University (UK) and University of Portsmouth (UK), aimed at equipping graduates with the knowledge and skills they need to stay abreast of the exciting developments in life sciences.

Students will also gain practical experience with the dedicated, well-equipped laboratories and will have the opportunity to work on specially designed in-house, as well as industrial research projects as part of the curriculum here in our life science school in Singapore. Our life science school has regularly maintained and achieved the requirements for the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS), and all four labs are OHSAS 18001:2007-certified.

With specialisations in biochemistry, biotechnology, biomedical science, medical and pharmacological sciences, molecular biology, pharmacology and drug discovery, graduates are equipped to pursue a wide spectrum of careers in research and clinical laboratories. They are also capable of pursuing rewarding careers in the burgeoning biomedical, pharmaceutical, biologics, biotechnological, healthcare, and post-genomic medicine industries.

Our life science school also prepares students for employment by developing transferable skills, including self-management and reflective practice, independence, communication, IT, numeracy, data analysis, interpersonal, and teamwork, alongside current topics within the taught programmes in Singapore.
