Courses Plan

The Integrative Biomedical Sciences degree programme offered by ZJU-UoE is a four-year programme. Each year you will undertake a set of courses that count towards your degree.

 

For each course that you successfully pass, you will be awarded the relevant number of credits for that course. If you pass the required number of credits in each year, you will progress to the next year of the programme. If you have passed the required number of credits at the end of your programme, and met any other requirements, you will be eligible for the award of a degree.

 

By enrolling on the Integrative Biomedical Sciences undergraduate programme at the Zhejiang University-University of Edinburgh Institute, you have the opportunity to qualify for two B.Sc. degrees:

· B.Sc. Integrative Biomedical Sciences from Zhejiang University

· B.Sc. (Hons) Integrative Biomedical Sciences from the University of Edinburgh
