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

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, the content of the courses are relevant and applicable to both the international and local communities of students.

The School’s up-to-date and rigorous programmes, offered in partnership with Northumbria University (UK), University of Portsmouth (UK) and Coventry University (UK), aim to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills they need to stay abreast of the exciting developments in Life Sciences.

Students will also gain practical experience in the School’s dedicated well-equipped laboratories and will have the opportunity to work on specially designed in-house, as well as industrial research projects. The School has regularly maintained and achieved the requirements for the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment System (OHSAS) and all four labs are OHSAS 18001:2007-certified, another first amongst private education institutions in Singapore.

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

The 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.
