BSc - Extended Programmes

There are three streams:
• Mathematical Sciences
• Biological and Agricultural* Sciences
• Physical Sciences
* Take note that the Agricultural Sciences Programme is five years in length.
 
Students who wish to study Health Sciences and Veterinary Science should apply for the Biological stream of the BSc - Extended Programmes. During the first year of the BSc - Extended Programmes students may apply to the Faculty of Health Sciences. This Faculty admits students based on their performance in the first year of the programme. If accepted by the Faculty of Health Sciences the student leaves the programme at the end of the first year (after two semesters).
