First Year Health Sciences

Students walking through the Courtyard

The Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) at Bader College is a direct-entry program that allows you to dive into courses related to human health from the perspectives of biomedical and social sciences in your first year. By travelling to the UK for year one of the Health Sciences program, you will still experience the same innovative BHSc curriculum that is built with a competency-framework common to health professional programs, including medicine, but also have a Study Abroad experience like no other!

Highlights of our Health Sciences Programming: Alert Box

  • Innovative learning: Our course's blended learning puts the emphasis on you learning to connect and extend course content, within a dynamic group learning environment. 

  • Get involved: Even smaller class sizes than main campus facilitate collaboration with your entire peer group, not to mention your instructors.

  • Achieve core BHSc competencies: collaborator, communicator, advocate, leader, scholar, professional and content expert.
  • Become a well-rounded scientist: You will develop the leadership experience, global awareness, and people skills that today's employers expect in addition to analytical thinking abilities, problem-solving skills, and industry-specific knowledge.

  • Acquire a professional advantage: Our curriculum has been developed with a similar competency-based framework that is being increasingly used in professional health programs
