Biomed has its first in-take of its BSc

For its inaugural BSc degree, the Department of Biomedical Sciences has said it would emphasise quality. “We emphasise quality. A learner can have more than 25 points, but it could happen that quality is missing. All the students we accepted had level five or more in Maths. The minimum was level four for Physics, English and Life Sciences,” said Nhlanhla Nsele, a senior lecturer in the department. The department has enrolled 30 students for the BSs. Nhlanhla said they would also continue to run the diploma in Biomedical Technology, which they will phase out in the next few years. Other departments have also seen learners with very good grade 12 results electing MUT as their first choice. This will be a big plus in MUT’s efforts to improve the graduation statistics, and the quality of its graduates.
