Kick-start medical studies at UK varsity branch campus

NUMed provides medical and biomedical sciences degree programmes in Johor.

THOSE aspiring to have rewarding careers in the medical field have an additional option to consider.

Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed), an international branch campus of Newcastle University, UK, is strategically located in Johor.

The globally recognised university with a proven track record offers students from Malaysia and the surrounding region easy access to a prestigious medical education.

School leavers will be able to get started on their medical education pathway with the university’s Foundation in Biological and Biomedical Sciences programme.

The 12-month foundation programme eases the transition of students to relevant degree programmes, helping to prepare them academically and mentally for the rigorous requirements needed to pursue either of NUMed’s undergraduate programmes, namely the 2+1 BSc (Honours) Biomedical Sciences (BMS) or the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), or any other relevant programmes in other tertiary education institutions.

For the foundation programme, eight modules will be covered in three semesters.

These modules are designed to dispense fundamental scientific and medical information, as well as practical laboratory skills from the Biology I, Biology II, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Statistics, and Medical Studies modules.

Foundation students will also be able to hone their communication, comprehension, presentation, study, information and communication technology skills as well as writing techniques for academic study.

These are aimed at providing the students with a good balance of theoretical and hands-on experience in addition to other learning skills to ensure that they are equipped to succeed in their undergraduate studies.
