Since the establishment of School of Biological Sciences (SBS) in 2001, we have always focused on equipping students with the skills and knowledge essential for today’s global environment.
SBS offers a stimulating environment and diverse areas of research in biological and biomedical sciences. We promote interdisciplinary research through collaboration across boundaries and are committed to doing excellent research and delivering high-level education to our students.
We currently offer three different graduate programmes:
- PhD (Research)
- M.Sc (Research)
- M.Sc (Coursework) in Biomedical Data Science
The PhD and M.Sc Research programmes require the students to perform original and novel research and submit a thesis for examination at the end of their candidature. It takes typically 4 years to complete the PhD and ~1.5 to 2 years for M.Sc.
The M.Sc in Biomedical Data Science is a coursework-based Master’s degree where the students attend a selection of course modules related to biomedical sciences and data sciences. The duration for this program is 1 year.
Application for Admission
A good bachelor’s degree from a recognized university in relevant areas: at least a B.Sc. Honours (Distinction) / B.Sc. (2nd Class Upper Division) or equivalent
NTU offers a wide range of scholarships for full-time Ph.D. studies to Singapore citizens, permanent residents and international applicants.
SBS offer two Joint Ph.D Programmes in the areas of Biomedical Sciences and Immunology with our partner institutions: Karoliska Institutet (Sweden), and SIgN.
Graduate Programme by Coursework
The Master of Science in Biomedical Data Science is the first graduate programme in the Asia-Pacific region offering data science training for specific application in the biomedical domain. The programme is a joint collaboration between Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR) Singapore.Find out more
