Program Information

School:University of New Brunswick - Fredericton
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Clinical/Medical Laboratory Science and Allied Professions, Other
Description:

The degree of Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science (BMLS) is offered through the Faculty of Science in partnership with the New Brunswick Community College in Saint John (NBCC-SJ). Enrolment will be limited and based on availability of seats in the Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) program at NBCC-SJ. Students may enter the program only with approval from the Dean of Science or the program Director.



The BMLS degree requires completion of the MLT program either prior to or after completion of 84 credit hours of courses at UNB. For graduation, students must have completed the UNB portion of the degree as well as 2.5 years of the MLT program at NBCC-SJ and have passed the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) exams required for professional practice.



Note: Students who already have the MLT certification from NBCC-SJ or any other Canadian MLT program can be admitted to the BMLS degree with no limitation on enrolment. Foreign students cannot be admitted to the BMLS degree due to restrictions on acceptance of foreign students at NBCC-SJ

Admission Requirements

Grade for Entrance Previous Year (%)*75
Prerequisites:*

These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.

  •  Grade12 English  or  Grade12 Français 
  • 2 of  Grade12 Precalculus 
  •  Grade12 Chemistry 
  •  Grade12 Biology  or  Grade12 Geology  or  Grade12 Physics  or  Grade12 Science 

One additional senior-level course is also required. Senior-year Mathematics, Chemistry and another approved science are required courses for admission to the B.Science program. An average of your marks in senior Math, Chemistry, and your best other science course must be at least 75%.

If you don’t meet the admission requirements for direct entry to the Bachelor of Science degree program, but offer a minimum admission average of 70%, you may be given conditional admission to the appropriate Faculty in an entrance program to the extent that capacity allows.

If you present only Chemistry, you’ll be considered at the discretion of the Faculty.

If you have high academic standing you may be considered for admission if you present any two of three grade 12 Sciences, e.g. Biology/Chemistry; Biology/Physics; Physics/ Chemistry, etc.

If you intend to enroll in MATH 1003, Introduction to Calculus I, you must take a Placement Test which will be administered during Orientation week in September. Materials to prepare for this test are available at math.unb.ca/ready as well as from the Mathematics Departments in New Brunswick High Schools and UNB.

Based on your test scores, and the regulations set out by the Mathematics Departments, you’ll need to take either a Pre-Calculus course (Math 0863 UNBF or Math 1863 UNBSJ), a special section of Math 1003 that covers the material of the course over two semesters, or a regular (one semester) section of Math 1003.

* The entrance grade may change from year to year. Please contact the school for further information.

* We make every attempt to provide accurate information on prerequisites, programs, and tuition. However, this information is subject to change without notice and we highly recommend that you contact the school to confirm important information before applying.
