High quality noted in biomedical laboratory science and biomedica
The Swedish National Agency for Higher Education in its latest round of evaluations has noted the high quality of the biomedical laboratory science and biomedical analyst degree programmes at Linnaeus University.
The Agency’s quality assessment of degree programmes at the country’s universities and other higher education institutions continues. The latest round of evaluation involved the assessment of biomedical analyst and biomedical laboratory science degree programmes.
The Agency’s expert assessment following scrutiny of the two degree programmes above is that both degree programmes are of high quality. 14 degree programmes within biomedical laboratory science have been assessed and of that number, eleven were judged as being of high quality. With regards to the biomedical analyst degree programme, nine degree programmes were reviewed with seven judged as being of high quality.
- It’s good news that the National Agency has judged the biomedical laboratory science and biomedical analyst degree programmes to be of high quality. We are working continually to develop and raise the quality of all our programmes and courses, striving all the time to ensure that they are relevant not only for students but also for the labour market, says Stephen Hwang, Vice-chancellor of Linnaeus University.
The Biomedical analyst degree programme is one of the programmes at Linnaeus University where it is still possible to send in a late application.
