Career Prospects

Many of our graduates follow industrial careers, particularly in the research and management areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food technology and agriculture. Similar opportunities exist for life scientists in government independent laboratories involved with medical research, public health, forensic investigation, parasitology and disease research.

In addition, graduates employers often offer employment to graduates of any discipline. The opportunity to study a breath of subjects within our degree courses means that, while many of our graduates go on to further study or employment in their chosen subject areas others enter the professions and a wide range of careers in industry, commerce and the media.

All fees are in RM (Ringgit Malaysia) currency unless stated otherwise.
