After students accomplish all the requirements of the above required courses of UT-Health, SBMI will issue the Certificate of Completion. And the students can achieve the Bachelor of Science of SUSTC after approved and passed by SUSTC.

Stage III: Student who has accomplished Stage II and hopes to go on with Stage II must submit an official student transcript to prove that he/she has achieved the Bachelor of Science of SUSTC, and a copy of official letter issued by SUSTC to prove that he/she has achieved the degree.

After assessing this letter and transcript, SBMI will confirm if the student conforms to the admission requirements for graduate student of SBMI. If yes, this student will study relevant courses as the student of SBMI Master of Science Program.

The admitted students will pay all the tuition and fees for participating in UT-Health.

When students complete the requirements of the Master’s degree of UT-Health, they will be awarded the Master of Science in Health Informatics.
