FAQs about Studying a Bioscience Degree in Malaysia

What is Bioscience?

Bioscience is a study of living organisms.

The field of Bioscience typically ranges from the study of small living organisms such as microbes and plants to animals and human beings. This field is the main core of many innovative breakthroughs, from drugs and medicine to alternative energy!

There are a number of popular disciplines in Bioscience, particularly Biomedical Science, Biotechnology and Biochemistry. Each field specialises in a specific area, with Biomedical Science focusing on the human body, Biotechnology covering living organisms in technology, and Biochemistry emphasising on chemical processes in living organisms.

A Degree in Bioscience will equip you with the appropriate research and development skills and industry-relevant knowledge to continue to improve and provide sustainable living conditions to all living things.

What are the minimum entry requirements for a Bioscience Degree?

To pursue a Degree in Bioscience, the typical entry requirements are:

You may also need to have 5 credits (C and above) at SPM, O-Level or equivalent, where 3 of the subjects must be from either Biology, Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry or English.

That said, the entry requirements may vary depending on the university, so be sure to do your research!

What is your education pathway if you study a Bioscience Degree?

To pursue a Degree in Bioscience, you need to have an SPM qualification or equivalent and a Pre-U qualification. You must also meet the minimum entry requirements of the university.
