Course Information

The Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences (B-BIOMED) is a highly flexible degree that will allow you to tailor your studies and pursue your interest in the biology of human health and disease. In first year, you will complete foundation studies in areas of biomedical science including human biology, genetics, cell biology, microbiology, and immunology. In second and third year, you can major in: Human Biomedicine, the application of biological and physiological principles to clinical practice; Molecular Genetics, in which you will learn about new advances in genetics and genomics, and how these can be applied to improve health outcomes; or Pharmacology, in which you will gain an in-depth understanding of pharmacological principles, essential to the safe and effective development and application of medicines aimed to prevent or treat disease. You may also undertake a second major, or choose one or more specialisations in Human Pathology, Immunology and Cell Biology, Microbiology, Human Genetics and Genomics, and Pharmacology. Additional option units allow you to explore your interest in areas such as Reproductive Technologies, Bioinformatics, Forensics, Psychology, and more. You are also able to complete specialisations in others disciplines such as Corporate Governance, Professional Writing, or Digital and Social Media. The choice is yours! Throughout this course, you will gain valuable hands-on experience in our high-quality laboratories using cutting-edge technology that will prepare you for a variety of careers or further study in clinical health services, biomedical research, or drug discovery and development.
