can you switch from life sci to biochem?

I was wondering if you get into 2nd year Honours Life Sci, is it possible to later go into Biochemistry 3rd year (co-op) if you have all the prereqs?

Yes, I personally know two people who went from lifesci to biochem. However, the GPA requirements might be slightly higher (maybe 10?). The best thing to do would be to email/call Dr.MacDonald (905-525-9140 ext. 22316), she'll tell you the exact GPA needed.

Yes, switching into biochem (or any other upper year program) is very doable as long as you fulfill the GPA requirements as well as certain prerequisite courses. Make sure you tailor your course selection in first year so that you can shadow the program of your choice!
