The Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours with specialisations in Biotechnology, Applied Biotechnology, Applied Chemistry and Applied Physics is a one-year postgraduate designed as a continuation of the undergraduate BSc (major and minor). It aims at consolidating and deepening the knowledge and expertise in applied natural science disciplines and to develop student’s capacity to conduct supervised research of an applied nature.
Candidates will be considered for admission to the Bachelor of Science Honours programme if they have a Bachelor of Science degree (with a major in Biology, or Chemistry or Physics) at NQF Level 7 from NUST. Alternatively, candidates should have an equivalent qualification at NQF level 7 from a recognised institution, worth at least 360 NQF credits, or a pre-NQF Bachelor degree of at least three years duration from a recognised institution with specialisations in Biology, Chemistry or Physics.
NB: Admission into a specialisation will be based on the major undertaken previously at the undergraduate level (NQF Level 7).
