Arrow why not consider double degree?

Since you seem to be interested in both the sciences & TCM; why not try NTU's Double Degree: Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biomedical Sciences &
Bachelor of Chinese Medicine?

here is the link to its FAQs:

the tcm/science double degree program gives you 2 full degrees upon graduation from ntu? are the modules taken comparable to that of those students who take a single degree course in tcm? thx.

warning: if you hate chinese, don't take TCM. you need to learn chinese because all the medicine and equipment come from china. i think you'll also need to learn traditional chinese (!) because i guess some of the books are written that way.

i agree with LockT31W. if u are planning to take up the double degree in NTU, take note that about half of the lessons conducted in ntu (first 3 years) will be in chinese, and lessons conducted in BUCM (final 2 years) are highly likely to be conducted fully in chinese.

i was offered NTU TCM as well, but i wanna do medicine more. so likely will give that up. anyway. i went to the open house last year and spoke to one of the 3rd year student who was going to beijing soon to complete the 2nd part of the TCM course. she said coz the course is really new they are the pioneer batch or second batch, she was saying that the supply exceeds the demand quite significantly. she was telling me there are relatively few prospective employers. so u might wanna consider it through thoroughly before making the call. anyway, the good thing is that since it is a double degree, even if u dun practise as a chinese physician, u can always progress as a biomed scientist in your career path, so wider choices in the future i'd say. and i agree with the must like chinese part, coz 2 years or so will be spent in beijing, then everything u study will be in chinese, so cant really afford to hate chinese if u are considering to take up this course. hope this helps.

Oh my! really? haha okay thanks this really helps! but does a NUS science degree has a better prospective than TCM? cos i was offered a place at science fac at nus. from what i know, a science degree is quite useless unless you study until masters or phd, which i think is really quite true. suggestions anyone??

or maybe i shld just go to aus and do medicine next year.
