Session 1: Things that I wish I knew before studying Life and Health Sciences 

Biomedical Sciences and Biological sciences are two related disciplines that are fundamental to the modern world. They underpin healthcare both in urban communities such as Hong Kong, Singapore and more widely for vulnerable populations worldwide. They provide careers in research, operations and management of many types of laboratories in the health sector. These subjects have a major role to play in understanding changes to global and local environments and the impact of environmental change on health. There is significant demand for specialists in these areas. Salaries and career prospects are strong globally. 

In this session, academic speakers and current students will give you a broader knowledge in these fields and useful tips on how to gain that extra step ahead of your peers!
