Prerequisites Notes
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.
It is recommended that students who have not taken any mathematics courses for more than two years take MATH 1863 Precalculus before attempting MATH 1001 or MATH 1003.
Students with less than 75% in each of the PRECALCA120 and PRECALCB120 (or equivalent) may want to consider taking MATH 1863 Precalculus before attempting MATH 1001 or MATH 1003.

Financial Information for International Students

UNB Financial Information


Biology-Chemistry is one of several interdisciplinary programs offered at UNB. This program gives students the opportunity to study biology and chemistry jointly to cover a broad base of topics in both disciplines, and can be tailored to individual student interests.

Courses in biology, chemistry, math, and physics will give students a knowledge of organisms (from the cellular level up to ecosystem level interactions) and how they can be understood and manipulated through application of chemical tools, techniques, and analysis at the molecular level. A selection of chemistry courses covering its main sub-disciplines will support student understanding of the relevant biochemical, medicinal, and pharmaceutical aspects of the program.
