     How our program works
     The Bachelor of Medical Sciences (BMSc) program, offered
     jointly by the Faculty of Science and the Schulich School of
     Medicine & Dentistry, is designed for students interested in
     studying the medical science disciplines at an advanced level.
     Students interested in this program should apply to Medical
     Sciences. Students admitted to Medical Sciences are assured
     admission to Year 3 BMSc provided they satisfy certain
     conditions in Medical Sciences 1 and 2.

     Students interested in the undergraduate program in
     Neuroscience (BSc) in Year 2 will normally apply via Medical
     Sciences; however, any student who satisfies the first-year
     admission requirements can be considered for admission.

     Not your typical classroom è
                                
     Political Science Professor Radoslav Dimitrov
     (below) brings his classroom to life each
     year with negotiation simulations, pitting
     student against student as they portray
     diplomats negotiating international treaties
     on a variety of issues, from climate change
     to the Iranian nuclear energy program.
     The exercise ends with a reality check,
     where students hear the real story of the
     negotiations on the Paris Agreement on
     Climate Change. This is just one example
     of ways we make learning fun at Western.
