NZ University BMLSc Degree Programmes

A degree in Medical Laboratory Science (MLSc) in New Zealand allows you to work as a Scientist in Diagnostic Pathology in this country.  If you are interested in Science and helping people, a degree in MLSc may be a good choice for you for a future career. Take the time to watch the short video on I am a Medical Laboratory Scientist - It has been produced by the American Association of Clinical Laboratory Science and provides a brief insight into MLS as a career. This may help you to decide whether it is something you are interested in learning more about?

A BMLSc degree is required or you to work as a Medical Laboratory Scientist in a human diagnostic pathology laboratory in New Zealand.  This qualification will prepare you for registration as a MLS with the Medical Sciences Council of New Zealand and allow you to hold an Annual Practising Certificate (APC).

The vocational pathway to becoming a medical laboratory scientist in NZ (and most other parts of the world) requires students to complete a Bachelors degree in MLSc.  The vocational BMLSc programmes of study in NZ are offered by:
